On day 129 of 365 Days Wild I left the house before dawn to watch the sun rise from my favourite viewing spot–the lane outside the meadow, where the hedgerow frames the view.
Despite dawn not being until 7:17am, I actually nearly missed it, again. I fell back to sleep after my alarm, which is never a good idea. Luckily, I woke myself for 7.05 and managed to throw myself into clothes, out the door, and down the lane, just in time for the sight of the rising sun. Whew!
The dawn sun illuminated the hedgerow beautifully and I caught my first sunbeams of the morning as they shone through the growth.
It looks like I managed to catch a fairy, too! I was determined to angle these shots so the ‘orb’ of the lens flare appeared like a glowing winged creature.
The light through the golden oak leaves particularly drew me.
As did a lone White Campion (Silene latifolia subsp. alba) flower that was growing at the lane’s edge.
After watching the dawn I then made my into the meadow where I followed the sunlit path.
I then sat on a bench beside the path to drink my morning coffee.
There are several different benches that I like to sit on. One of them seems to be in the process of being engulfed by the bramble patch behind it.
All in all, it was a perfect way to start the day – despite the initial rush.
That’s all for today. Have you watched the dawn recently? I’d love to know. Just leave a comment below.
