New Years Sunrise

I haven’t been up this early in the morning on New Years Day for probably about 35 years! I’m clearly getting older 🙁

So, this years 365 project gets off to an early start…when I stepped out of the house I was greeted with pretty flat grey skies…then the (very short) show began. Somewhere below the horizon gaps in the clouds allowed this lovely red sky to develop – I grabbed 6 shots of it over the 9 minutes there was any colour in the sky before it reverted back to flat grey. It was a good thing I was early as officially sun rise was at 08.06 here and all the action had finished by 07.59.

The town bell was clanging 8.00pm as I made my way back into the house!
