WOOLLIE - SUNRISE

Two posts in one day - this doesn't happen often, but I couldn't wait any longer to show you the beautiful sunrise viewed from my living room window on Monday morning! It really was one of the best ever!  

I am not sure that the old saying "Red Sky at Night, Shepherd's Delight, Red Sky in the Morning, Shepherd's Warning" came true on Monday. Here in Scotland we didn't have the rain and the snow seen in Northern England.

These photos were taken between 740am and 755am (I think I managed to take about 35 photos as the sky just kept getting better and better) and I promise I haven't done anything creative to the photos - just point and shoot!! I love the way the red sky is reflecting in the river - both the river and sky, afire!

That sunrise takes my breath away. We have not seen much of the sun this winters, although today it did come out and was a glorious day.

Ooh - I would not have been able to wait to post these photos either. What a beautiful sunrise.

Stunning sunrise captured so beautifully! I've heard that saying too, but the version I heard was about sailors, not shepherds. Makes me think it's not true. They lied!

If the sky was that beautiful here where I am, I might be able to get up in the morning!

You are so much like me!!! I always say "Red at night, sailors delight...red in the morning, sailors take warning". I was just looking at the sunrise this morning thinking that! Your photos are beautiful. Simply beautiful.
