Wordless Wednesday

"The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."

~John Muir

  6. You just have to love a sunrise like that though as the saying goes "Red sky in the morning shepherds warning" (rain) "red sky at night shepherds delight" (sunny day) One of these morings I'll get up early and go off to a nearby hill and get a photo of the sun riseing over the Thames Valley at Goring.
