June sunrise

It's winter here.  The days are short, cold and often wet.  However, on fine days, June is a golden month for sunrises and sunsets - regardless of volcanic ash clouds drifting over from Chile.  Every year, it's impossible to resist capturing one or two on camera.

Took a whole sequence last Thursday, between 7:30 and 8:00 am, while taking a walk before work.  These two, about five minutes apart, show how quickly the show changes.  In the last moments, the reflected light in the wet sand glowed lilac.

Wow, what truly stunning skies - they've got to set the creative juices flowing, Paul. In the UK we've gone from water shortages to days of torrential downpours in less than a week - Hey, it's Wimbledon what else do you expect?!

Water polo may be more appropriate then?

We've had some torrential downpours here in the last few days and it's wonderful to see the loch overflowing across the small airstrip, the paddocks flooded until they mirror the sky, and black swans flying low from one stretch of water to the next. Certainly no tennis here either!
