The last image on my camera’s SD card for October was the sunrise over the rooftops taken from my back door on October 31st. Although we did change all the clocks in the house, my body clock chose to ignore the offer of an extra hour in bed so I got up to make myself a cup of tea and was rewarded with this lovely sight…
The last image on my camera phone is actually the sunset on 29th October over Craig Phadraig Hill (in the centre of the shot) taken while walking home in Inverness after visiting my dad in hospital… Seems quite fitting that my last two images turn out to be both a sunrise and a sunset! 🙂
I very recently travelled overnight from Inverness to London on the Caledonian Sleeper, sitting up all night in the seated coach rather than splashing out on the relative luxury of a bunk-bed in a compact cabin, so I happened to be awake early to see the sun rise over the English countryside.
It’s surprisingly difficult to take a non-blurry image through the double-glazed windows of a moving train rattling down the tracks in the dim early morning light with nothing more than a decidedly mediocre phone camera, all the while avoiding power lines and poles and other such trackside objects obscuring the view.
I’m just happy at having a reasonably straight horizon and not too much glare and flare 🙂
