Wonders on my winter wanders

Admiring observation mode's gorgeous sunset photographs a few days ago reminded me that I can't remember last seeing a pretty sunset in London.

But on my daily walk to school a couple of days ago, I was struck by the most beautiful sunrise. It was already 8:00AM but it seems that in these winter days the sun hasn't come out even by then. Painful and cold and dark when you wake up before 7:00AM but also conducive to lovely sunrises which actual human beings can witness. But I started wondering why I had never seen them before on winter mornings, and I came to the conclusion that I hadn't been looking hard enough. The beauty of the sunrise that morning was so overwhelming that I had to stop (unusual for me), take out my phone, turn it on, and take photos.

I'm still undecided about leaving my school at the end of this year for my last two years of free education (before university). A primary reason for staying right now is these magical morning walks. From now on, I'm going to make the most of them.


  1. Right on, lady. Must feel good to know those sunrises will be there for you morning.

  2. That's a gorgeous photo!

    Thanks for the nice compliment about mine. I got extremely lucky that day.

    I guess there's no rush to decide about school. Take your time.

  3. It's incredible that this was a camera phone, no?

    I really do think the secret is light - the photos I take indoors are simply horrible!

    enc - luckily I'm not moving to a private school, or I'd have had to already made my decision...
