Magic happened this morning

Another early morning walk, I remembered my camera this time. The street lights were still shining when I set out. A bit further on they went off one by one as it got lighter.

At the end of the road I turned a corner, oh wow, this is going to be good.

I walked through a gap in the hedge and into a field for a better view. I waited for it to develop.

I was about to witness an awesome sunrise.

Rooted to the spot, I took many pictures. So beautiful.



The fields miles away were ablaze with an orange reflection from the sky.

I walked a bit further and found another vantage point. I never want this to end. Pity it will be gone in a short time.



Keep walking, this is taking me a lot longer than the normal 35 minutes. Can't stop marvelling at the wonderful sights to be had at this time of the morning. Worth getting up for.

Starting to get lighter now.

This is the view in the opposite direction, the sun goes down over the river in the evening. Still a fantastic view. If you see a nice sunrise or sunset always look in the opposite direction.


Time to go home for breakfast, hungry now. I think I'll have porridge and fruit today. Click on a picture to make them larger, and have a slide show.

  2. Thank you, Ilona, for posting these views. My recent retirement has involved relocating to a very pleasant and convenient in-town flat, this is my first fall season missing those country morning sunrises along the little river.

  8. I think your photos have caught the sky beautifully Ilona.When my mum was poorly a local artist lady gave her a painting and the sky was pink and blue and I thought it odd at the time- now I realize I was wrong x

  18. Lovely scenes.

    Btw, have you ever wanted to do a long distance walk all in one go - like the 630 mile Sw Coastal Path, for example?

    I couldn’t ... but I bet you could ...
