Monday Miscellany

I thought I'd start writing the Monday Miscellany posts again as it seems a long time since the last one.

I also thought I'd share some photos of this morning's sunrise with you as it was rather wonderful.

Photos taken in the back garden over half an hour.  It is amazing how quickly it all happened before the grey and dismal day set in again





When we were children we used to say 

 'Red sky at night, shepherd's delight, red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning'

I think we have some stormy weather to come overnight and tomorrow.

    1. I was up early yesterday because we had to drive quite a way and wanted an early start so I caught the sunrise:)

  3. There was an intense red band near the horizon as I drove to work this morning. But you're not allowed to stop on the motorway to take photos however pretty the dawn! I'm glad you caught it on my behalf.

    1. I saw some wonderful skies on our drive yesterday but of course no time to stop so had to admire. At least I got the few shots at home before we set out:)

  8. Beautiful photos. I have to admit that I'm never up at dawn so I have to enjoy it in the photos of others.
