Early morning sunrise and vapour trails, I know it could be anywhere but it was taken from my house in Wigan :-)

I really love the colors. I love the early morning sky. I live in Hernando, Ms. and my skies look a bit different. I love your pic. Good job.

Saw some spectacular skies over in Adelaide from Brighton beach. Wherever we are we can almost get some fatastic shots. Just be ready with your camera. Well done Dan.

I have always maintained that even though they are very pretty, vapour trails pollute the atmosphere.

Nice shot for those who get up early. For those of us who are up early tomorrow (Tuesday) at about 07.35, we should be able to see the ISS (International Space Station) in the South Western sky. Weather permitting of course.

love both places

Terrific shot, well done. I like the mix of straight and curved lines, the contrast of reds and blues, the gradually spreading lighter tones. All symbolic of growing expectations, a brighter future, a cheerful optimism.

That is beautiful... There are so many trees all around where I live, I can barely see the sky,especially in the summer

Re the comment from Dave Marsh - Vapour trails are exactly that that - water vapour - and do not pollute. They are nothing to do with the exhaust from aircraft engines.

Nice to be up early Dan, as you can see best part of the day! H.
