Early Bird


another school run photo, and when it comes to early morning skies, there have been some right stunners this month...obviously some pretty dismal, depressing ones too, but thought I'd focus on the good days, in a cup half full kind of way.

I know it doesn't get the best press, November - the first real icy blast of winter and fading autumn colour, yet for me it's more than just the dull inbetweener because it's my birthday month. Not that I get remotely excited about that anymore, but it's never a month I wish away either.

We pick up a friend's son a few times a week, and this is the sky view just past their house. Well, sometimes it is, when the clouds lift high enough to let the light shine through.When the weather's good there's that moment of anticipation as we turn onto the road heading due east, and get our first proper look at the sun rising behind the hills. Even more spectacular when the clouds catch the colours. For a minute on a chilly November morning it drowns out the racket in the back of the car and never fails to lift my spirits.
Hope ahead.


The Gallery theme this week is November

  2. Beautiful. We have had some stunning sunrises/sunsets too, it's been a good month everywhere for them it seems. I know a lot of people don't like November, but I have always had a bit of a soft spot for it...

  6. I'm a fan of Autumn, I must say - not so keen on the grey dreaeriness, but there are some glorious mornings - lucky to have captured one of them like this!
