Early Autumn :Sunrise in Sydney

Sunrise in Sydney Australia

Sunrise in Sydney Australia

House light reflections

It had seemed destined to be a hassle: this (very) early-morning swim meet.

A 7a.m. start has set a precedent: the earliest in  all my decades of attendance.

And yet….

The magic starts as we amble down the hill. I catch more than a glimpse of distant houselights, reflecting on the river. A sight I’ve never seen before.

But that is only the beginning: the true spectacle will soon begin, and eclipse  my most wondrous expectations

I have never before seen a sunrise from this vantage point.  Watching the changing sky, minute by minute, second by second, is truly awesome. Clouds atop the trees are taking on brilliant hues and highlights. Below, the river echoes their reflections.

Small wonder that photographers try to capture it all!

    Lovely photos Margaret. Sunrise is one of my favourite times of day. Also sunset.

      I agree. I’ve taken some beautiful sunsets, yet somehow Ron’s sunrise shot eclipses them for their incredible contrasts and sheer beauty. Or is it just that I’ve so seldom seen a sunrise from such a vantage point?
