Beyond The Sunrise
Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond
A few days ago I posted a number of photographs I have taken on my morning walks of the sunrises I witness, I pointed out the photo to be my favourite, so when I saw this photo challenge, I thought it would give me a great opportunity to explain why.
This picture was taken on Tuesday 13th November 2012, as a walked to work along the old train line, which is now a cycle path, the lake is an old gravel pit.
I walk past the lake most mornings, some mornings the sunrise is hidden, others aren’t so spectacular, this morning though was different, these were the most fantastic pictures I have taken so far.
The eyes are simply drawn to the depth of the colour of the sky and clouds, all the way back to the trees on the far side of the lake, where you search for the first sight of the sun rising behind the trees.
The beauty of the sun tinting the edge of each cloud with a shining golden orange and the reflection of each cloud in the ripples of the lake below, is breath taking.
These two other pictures show the same sunrise in slightly different views, but the same glory.
This one was taken six days earlier, the eye is drawn to the sun creeping slowly into view from behind the same trees, creating an orange glow to the whole sky.
