Here comes the sun …

Sunrises and sunsets are a photographic cliché but this doesn’t stop me rushing for the camera every time I see one.  If they occurred with the infrequency of the northern lights it would stop us in our tracks.

We are fortunately placed, with a near uninterrupted view of the sun rising across the high ground above the Tyne Valley.  These images were taken a short time apart – above the valley the mist has burned off to a gin clear day while down in Hexham, there is fog on the Tyne.  If you look closely to the right of the video, you can see the fog bank shifting along the valley – these time-lapse videos have a certain sameness but I admit to compulsive habits and this is just one of them:

Fog on the Tyne ... Fog on the Green ...

    I watched that video like 6 times. Mesmerizing, sun rising.

      Many thanks Cate – makes going outside in a dressing gown in freezing temperatures worthwhile 🙂 Here is another incorporating sunset, moonrise and sunrise – All the best, R

    Sublime sunrise…except for the contrails. They always mess up a perfect sky shot. The last image of the foggy golf course makes me smile. I can picture you emerging from the mist with your clubs, ready to do battle. 😀

      Those contrails certainly muck up a clear sky – not sure why I should refrain from leaving the TV in standby mode to save the planet when all that is going on overhead 😉 Unfortunately, this time I didn’t have my clubs with me but I confess, I have played in worse 😀
