This is the reason why it is worthwhile getting out of bed at 6am on a very nippy autumn morning. Seeing eerie swirls of other-wordly mist in the valley is the best way to start the day.
Just when you think sunrise couldn’t get any better, the slightest pink blush appeared in the sky, ever so faint, and only momentarily, but it was there.
Tonight, twenty minutes short of twelve hours later, a deep shade of orange appeared in the sunset sky, And is that the moon is see glowing in the sky to the right of the mountain?
“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!” ~~ Mehmet Murat ildan
During this morning’s sunrise, the valley demonstrated all the beauty I know she is capable of. I call the valley “she” as I like to believe that everything natural in the valley is the creation of Mother Nature, in case anyone is wondering.
From the pink tinted sunrise sky to the formless mist lapping against the “shores” of the distant ranges, the entire valley was pure early morning perfection.
See the dark green “island” peeking through the “ocean” of mist?
And while gossamer waves of mist lapped the “shores” of the tree-covered islands …
… an early visitor arrived to join me in admiring the view, as the “waning gibbous” morning moon looked down on us from the waking sky.
Yesterday, between visits from the men installing our new kitchen benchtops, I restored my office back to it’s pre-new-floor-coverings condition. I also took the opportunity to get rid of anything that I no longer have a use for. There’s plenty of sorting and decluttering happening in this house currently! So tonight I am back at my desktop computer. No more fumbling with tiny keys on my iPhone – yay!
The kitchen renovation is scheduled to be finished by the end of this week. Tomorrow, the plumber arrives to restore water to my kitchen. Meanwhile, Bowie needed to investigate the new kitchen sink, as I knew he would. 😉
