Fleeting beauty

The last few weeks I've been making an effort to go to bed earlier so that I can get up earlier.  One of the joys of Bag End's location is seeing the sun rise over Skiddaw and it's been far too long since I watched it.



The only photo editing was to reduce the size for Blogger, no colour adjustments, absolutely nothing else :}

  1. Don't you think the camera reveals colours that you don't see with the eye or was this exactly as you saw it?

  2. Beautiful. I'm a little envious! (Hi - I don't think I've commented before, but thought I'd come out of hiding!)

    1. Hi Jenny, welcome to Bag end and thanks for commenting. This is the week for Blog-land to just get smaller and smaller :} I visited a couple of new (to me) blogs and found people I already know there, and have just looked at your blog and realised I've visited before ... but no idea where I linked from.

      Very envious of your recent trip to Islay, beautiful part of the world.

      Please can I come for supper next time you're doing those potato wedges? yum, yum!

    2. It does seem to be a small world. I've just spotted Rusty Duck has commented further down - another blogging friend I've been making recently!

      Islay is stunning, this was our second visit and I'm already starting to wonder when the third will be :D

  3. Beautiful. We quite often see a good sunrise, but we've not had much of it this winter, due to either cloudy days or fog. Take care.

    1. We have beautiful sunrises here but sadly I've been sleeping through them in recent months :}

  4. Stunning pictures Bilbo.
    We once tried to reach the summit of Skiddaw. Didn't, but at least got further than the group of Japanese ladies attempting it in high heels.

      Shudder - not as uncommon an occurrence and you might think. My personal favourite is those with no food, no water, no map and no decent protective clothing. There are some incredible numpties around who didn't see Julia Bradbury using any of those things so figured they could stroll off with just a battered 'Wainright' in hand and b*gger all else.

      Oh well, at least they were trying, rather than sitting indoors in front of the telly :}
