9. Glorious!

There is something so life affirming about watching the sun rise...I love watching it rise over the ocean...

Another very special sun rise was viewing it from the crater of Haleakala on Maui...standing in the birthplace of the island, (well, one of two) watching a new day dawn...incredible.

Once again you've delivered amazing beauty to du! Thanks!

15. Mmmmm, stunning shot

Puts me in mind of a poem we learnt in primary school :

The Australian Sunrise
James Lister Cuthbertson

The Morning Star paled slowly, the Cross hung low to the sea,
And down the shadowy reaches the tide came swirling free,
The lustrous purple blackness of the soft Australian night,
Waned in the gray awakening that heralded the light;
Still in the dying darkness, still in the forest dim
The pearly dew of the dawning clung to each giant limb,
Till the sun came up from the ocean, red with the cold sea mist,
And smote on the limestone ridges, and the shining tree-tops kissed;
Then the fiery Scorpion vanished, the magpie's note was heard,
And the wind in the she-oak wavered, and the honeysuckles stirred,
The airy golden vapour rose from the river breast,
The kingfisher came darting out of his crannied nest,
And the bulrushes and reed-beds put off their sallow gray
And burnt with cloudy crimson at dawning of the day.

17. Very beautiful. Gregory Peck in "The Yearling" said "Hear comes the sun" when the storm broke...

 

and the sun lit up the wreckage of his farm after the hurricane.
