This was taken about 2 weeks back when we had that one morning with a really vibrant sunrise. It was taken at about 7.00am from my house in Kitt Green looking towards winter hill direction. No photo editing either it's right out of the camera.

Terrific Photo
-------------
The Red that flows
like blood afire;
The Purple glows
of swirls much higher
cover the sleeping souls;
cover the wakening minds;
dress the new day with nature's attire.

Neil,I've never been into Shakespeare..but I like the couple of poems that you've put on here lately.

Just beautiful! I love sunrise and sunset colours. The recent sunrises have made my day whilst travelling to work.

Maureen, there does seem to be snippets of Shakespeare for every occasion, but the verse at 11:07 is not Shakespeare.

That was a lovely morning, glad it was caught on camera. I remember being told this: 'Red sky in the morning shipping warning. Red sky at night shepherds delight'.
Neil you are quite poetic indeed!
