Skywatch Friday - Boxing Day sunrise


At its height, the Boxing Day sunrise filled the sky with glory.

It started gently. This is the view south-east from my Dad's garden, towards the river Spey and the Conval Hills.




This was about 8.40 a.m.



The colour of the sky over the Convals was a shade that I can only describe as Laura Ashley duck egg blue. We have Laura Ashley kitchen seat pads in just this combination of blue and peach. It was rather nice to see it in the sky:



More glorious skies from around the world are at Skywatch Friday.
