The sunrise was beautiful this morning. As I started my drive to work, there was the promise of something in the clouds - the leaden grey was breached by faint hints of gold. Then yellow stripes imposed themselves on the reluctant gloom. The grey adopted a blue tone as the glory unveiled itself. Soon the sun burst above the horizon fiery red, imposing itself on the reluctant Angus coastline.
And I didn't have my camera! Again! Hence the flowery description above.
Actually the real joy of this morning's sunrise was in the reflections. As the sun broke through, I was driving past a row of newly constructed houses on a hill, facing the sunrise. Every window in the street was glowing red. It was breathtaking (and I'm sure that's isn't said very often about these houses!). The view from inside must have been truly awe-inspiring.
I've attempted to recreate the effect below. I know it's 'a bit basic', and applying the label 'art' to this post is bordering on the farcical, but ... I blame 'Lucy' for making me even think about doing that... actually I should thank her for stimulating thoughts that have long lain dormant.
