Clouds on fire and other gorgeous colours

As I walked Treehaven Way this morning the sunrise was just spectacular - made all possible by the layers, textures (types) and colours of clouds. The whole colour show lasted about 20 minutes but what a show. Fragments of clouds just lit up with cascading gold.

I loved how the bird on the wire even got a soft pink infused cloud backdrop.

And the camellias on the terraces below the house continue to just go crazy and create carpets of petals as well as masses of blossoms.

The last of bell pepper chillies floats like a burning ember against the defused foliage background.

Talk about colour in the world.


  1. Wow - and I thought here in New Mexico, our sunrises are spectacular but this sunrise Barry, is majestic, magnificent and pure wonder!

  2. M and V - so good we can share the skies on opposite sides of the globe. V - we tend to say colours - but now spell checker tends to offer colour first. Go well. B
