Morning has broken

I've been living in 'interesting times ' recently and not had much time for blogging.
Hopefully things will calm down for a while at least.

For once I was up at dawn around the Summer Solstice and managed to take these photos.
The little round topped building on the hill is the Nice Observatory.

This reminded me of some sort of sci film special effects-the sky looked like it was on fire.
I loved the massive wedge shaped sunbeams lighting up the angry clouds.
Its hard to believe that these thick clouds all disappeared within an hour .

Fantastic photos! Love the glowing sky - looks almost like embers amongst ash.

The seahorses are cute too!
Well done for getting another blog post done despite all the upheaval.

Fab sky! Those sunbeams are to die for. Good luck with the 'interesting times', I hope all goes well for you.
