Wake up call

My weekday alarm is set for 6:20a.m. Not so long ago, I would open my eyes to pitch blackness. It is so much easier to start the day when there is a glint of sunlight peeping in through the crack between the curtains.

I am fortunate in that the back of my house faces South so, although I don't easily see the sun setting, I do ocasionally catch a glorious sunrise. So it was today!

My first ever blog post was of another sunrise, photographed back in November http://h-little-sealed-packages.blogspot.com/2010/01/dawn-of-new-day.html. Comparing the two, I find it interesting to see how the position of the sunrise has changed. In November, the sun was directly behind the silhouetted leylandii, with the majority of the light shining out to the right of it. Now, in March, the sun is clearly visible to the left. I'm sure there must be a lesson waiting to be taught from that sometime.


  1. I so agree about the difference a bit of early morning light makes. I feel more awake when I'm walking to work now.

  2. Oh what a beautiful day!
