Early morning light

Good morning!  It’s mornings like this that make getting up early for a run worth all the effort. 

morning light

 I’m using this photo for Hugh’s weekly photo challenge which this week is all about solitude.

This photo says it all  – the world is quiet, the light is beautiful, the views spectacular and I’m all alone with my thoughts……how lucky am I??

I enjoy the beautiful solitary time I have when I get up early and go out for a walk or a run before heading off to work. Autumn certainly is a beautiful time of year here.

This is my second entry in the Seven Days of Nature challenge – my first entry is also a solitary image but completely different to this photo.  Thanks to Desleyjane  and Una Vista di San Fermo for nominating me to post a nature photo each day for seven days.  They are both very accomplished bloggers and take some amazing photos, so I appreciate their kind words about my blog and for asking me to join in.

Seven days of nature 2/7

PS. Apologies to those who saw this photo on my Instagram feed this morning – I couldn’t help myself, I just wanted to share it with you all again 🙂

    This is beautiful Deb and perfect for Hugh’s theme on solitude. It almost looks painted. In fact, it reminds me of an old world water-color picture, incredibly peaceful.

      It does look a bit like a painting doesn’t it? I was so lucky to capture it this morning and that it turned out so well. It was magical thanks again.

    I agree, Deb, it’s a beautiful photograph. I always find early mornings are the best time for getting some solitude. When presented with a view like the one in your photo, it makes getting up early out of bed worth it.
    Enjoy the Autumn. It’s my favourite season of them all.

      I’m so glad you could see it too Olga and experience some of my solitude. It’s a beautiful place to live.

    Absolutely beautiful, I was going to say it looks like a painting and I see I’m not the only one. The colours are just gorgeous. What a wonderful part of the world you’ve captured.

      Thanks you. It does look like a painting but just my iPhone shot with a bit of minor editing. It is my everyday world! Quintessential Deb’s World in all its glory. I’m so lucky to live here and watch the seasons march across the countryside.
