The Daily Norm’s Photo of the Week – Morning Sunrise
It’s that time of the year again – when getting up in the morning to go to work is as welcome as a slap in the face with a cold kipper; when you would be happy to spend the rest of your time confined to the cosy folds of a warm duvet, and when your mind is alive with excuses as to how you can prolong pressing the snooze button on the alarm clock for just 10 more minutes. Yet every so often, the darkness outside is pierced by something of a peachy glow – I know when it’s happened in my bedroom because my blinds take on a kind of mystical shimmer, a bit like the artificial backdrop of a 60s sci-fi movie. And behind those blinds, more often than not, I will find a sight so stunning as to take my breath away; a sight which has my camera clicking, despite the semi-consciousness of my still half-sleeping state; and whose admiration takes up so much of my time that I have to rush to get ready in order to get to work on time.
I am of course talking about sunrises like this one, which is this week’s Daily Norm photo of the week. Everything about this sunrise is completely stunning, from the whispy cloud formations and the dark silhouette of the chimneys, to the great rising sun which appears to have doubled, probably as a result of photographing through double glazing. They say red sky in the morning is a shepherd’s warning, but personally I’m happy being warned of rain, so long as this kind of sight awakes me each day.
