Day 48 – 8th November 2016

The early frost was most welcome, as was the hour of sun immediately following sunrise at 7:17. The low sunlight shone warmly under the shield of cloud which advanced steadily from the west until 8:15 when the cloud won. The first two photographs below show just how quickly cloud colours change before sunrise. The first shows the magenta-pink which within less than six minutes had warmed into orange and yellow (the second) immediately before the sun rose.
