    While I was sitting here, commenting on new - once more gorgeous - posts that had arrived "over night" (my night, that is ;)), something suddenly told me: get up and out. Today's sunrise is going to be great. Don't know what it was, since the blinds were still drawn, but I followed that impulse.

    Here's what I witnessed (several different photo locations):

    (Here I am having the still not risen sun in my back, and I was on the bridge on which I took my self-portrait in October, and the stuck-in-the-boards-leaf, you remember?)

    (I "worked on" these two a bit --- are they too much like a picture postcard now?)

    And here it comes:

    "Oh what a beautiful morning...oh what a beautuful day!" Yes that song popped into my head looking at your great photos. Good thing you got up.:)
    I especially like the first few and the blood red of the sky.

    That last one is brilliant!


    I love how each progressive frame is smaller than the last. What a great idea!:thumbup:

    Really nice series, all pictures are of a good standard and composed really well. My favourites are #1 & #2 but i really like the ones that contain the sky's reflection in the river.

    You dreamin' or what? Me staying up all night? Never! (I'm off any minute now!)
    But I have to get up at 5:45h (so I can come to TPF first thing before I call the family at 6 :greenpbl: ), and when they are all gone by 7 in the morning I am FREE!
    So I was happily posting this morning, or reading, or enjoying photos (!), when I felt something marvellous was happening outside. So I grabbed my scarf, coat, extra batteries and little camera, "the weapon" and my car keys and rushed away. To get to where I finally saw the sun rise (last photo, the collage), I have to drive some 6 or 7 miles, but it was worth it. I took the trip slowly and stopped several times on the way, also to get to "my bridge" (I have lots of things that I "own" around here, if only in my mind, like trees that I have "adopted" in my mind, and, well, little bridges, too :D), froze a lot and enjoyed myself thoroughly.

    And all this just for you! You all.
    You know ;) :biggrin:

    Ah the worm for the early bird riser. These are very nice, I really love the first two and the last one. There is something about being out to catch the sunrise that warms the cockles of one's heart. Tres bien!
