    Roy that is simply gorgeous, love the colours and the mist and clouds and rolling hills. Ah, I do want to come back . . . .

  • Thank you very much Odille – we are lucky enough to have many sunrises like this up here, it’s just a matter of getting up in time to catch them !

  • Hello Pat – and thank you for your compliments. The view is so panoramic ( we are high on the hill ) it still has a lot of mileage in it yet ! Thank you also for the favourite. Roy
