A painted morning sky

This morning was predicted to be very cold and clear. I can vouch for the cold part; but not so clear; some good clouds across all parts of the sky providing the canvas for the morning light to paint the sky.

The light in the east as I left home at 6am was just breaking creating soft light and soft silhouettes.

And then the light show along Treehaven Way, looking to the east, was full of light and contrasts. Some of the morning sky seemed almost to burn.

I arrived home to soft light in the valley with wisps of cloud - looking to the south.

Such a contrast to the light in the valley before leaving home.

I'm always amazed that the light and colour can be so brief - from dark night like to soft morning light in the space of a half hour.
