While the  porridge was cooking

While the porridge was cooking

Glancing out the kitchen window as I put the kettle on to boil this morning, I noticed a faint pick glow coming from behind the mountains to the north east. So, having popped my porridge in the microwave, I grabbed the camera and went outside. Sure enough, the sun was rising in a blaze of gold and crimson. So, I shot a few frames and went inside to make sure that the son was also rising. Peeping out the window again, I could see deeper pink hues so I went back
out to see this most amazing sunrise colouring an expanse of sky. For once I'd captured my PAD before I'd even had my breakfast.
It's doubtful that I will see the sunrise tomorrow as I'm going out on our works Christmas party tonight. I am really looking forward to it as the people I work with are more than colleagues - they have become dear friends over the years. It will be the first time we've all been out together since a number of them were made redundant or transferred to another office earlier in the year so it will be really good to meet up again.

We had this beautiful sunrise too, only I didn't have a good vantage point from my house and I didn't have time to dress and drive for one. I voted - awesome work and I'm jealous! I hope you have a wonderful time at your Christmas party. Always nice to see old friends during the holidays!

breakfast must have tasted particularly good after catching this vivacious celestial light show...fair play to you for putting PAD before porridge..V
