Morningtide
 Morningtide   by Steve Carter  (Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ3)
Sunrise over Scholes illuminates the cloud cover to give a vivid display of colour.

The stunning sky and the title of the photo brought Grieg's "Morning" from The Peer Gynt Suite to my mind. A beautiful tune but of course I can't get it out of my head now and it id going to drive me potty all day!

When to see an image like this it brings home the fact that our planet is wonderful, lets try very hard not to destroy it.

Thanks for the morning glory Steve.


Comment by Maureen on 8th January 2019 at 08:34
Beautiful..just beautiful.
Thank you Steve.


Comment by kath on 8th January 2019 at 08:37
beautiful!

I first heard Morning Mood when it was played on our school's honey-coloured record player during the 1960s. Mr Farrimond, our enthusiastic Music Teacher, held us in suspense with words on the lines of "Listen carefully, . . . here it comes.", as the piece approached its 'best bit.' And then Whoosh!; Morningtide lusciously depicted, over a vast area of land. Nicely Steve.

Another good one - the clouds all streaked with sunshine!


Comment by Mick on 8th January 2019 at 14:01
When you have spent many years watching sunsets and sunrises over the Java sea and stormy skies of Indonesia, a sunrise over Scholes dosent do anything for me.
Ive just seen some beauty's in New Zealand why I was on holiday were the air is very clean and the clouds are fluffy and pure white


Comment by Poet on 8th January 2019 at 14:28
The sky seems more turbulent than tranquil. More Wagner than Grieg.


Comment by Veronica on 8th January 2019 at 15:04
The firmament is the same all over the earth - just different moods. Norfolk and Lincolnshire skies take some beating. Just huge!


Comment by Elizabeth on 8th January 2019 at 16:47
Lovely shot, thanks for posting.


Comment by Pat McC on 8th January 2019 at 17:33
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Mick, and living only yards from the sea on the Pembrokeshire coast, I too see beautiful sunrises and sunsets, but it doesn’t take away my appreciation of this beautiful scene. Thanks Steve!


Comment by Sue on 8th January 2019 at 18:30
Agreed Irene, Morning is going round and round in my head also. It my Dads favourite and played at his funeral.


Comment by Ken R on 8th January 2019 at 19:39
Lovely photo, looks like a forest fire.


Comment by Fred Mason on 8th January 2019 at 20:08
I have a sunrise photo of Kawagama Lake in Ontario in July and it is awesome, as are most sunrise pics all around the world.

This one of Scholes by Steve is just as awesome. Well done lad...Great pic.

Noswaith daa Pat. Are you near Fishguard at all? I walked there from Stumble Head a few weeks ago to watch the seals and see the Invasion tapestry .


Comment by Pat McC on 9th January 2019 at 05:41
Yes Poet - about 20 mins away. Strumble Head is beautiful and the lighthouse a big attraction.
