Eastern sunrise # 1 – Watercolour

This is the time of year for colour in our skies. As the sun rises, in the east just behind the Pentland Hills to the south of Edinburgh, any clouds catch the changing light and produce terrific colours and tones. This was something like this morning’s view. Its quite difficult to actually get any definite scene as the colours change quite quickly and there is a tendency to wait to see if a better range appears. The view in the opposite direction is quite different and my next post will try to demonstrate this.
