It was a pretty enough sunrise, viewed from home. While in the photo it looks quite dark still, it was not that dark. The camera lies. I often forget to pay attention to sunrises. There is an odd occasion when I find it hard to get up early, but generally I am happy enough to spring out of bed when the alarm shrieks. I am often already awake in anticipation of the day ahead. Just call me Pollyanna. All will be good.
But sometimes a sunrise can look harsh. In summer when at home, the light increases and suddenly a tiny piece of sun appears. And then it gets bright and nasty and I rush to close the blinds. While I wasn't at home, this was one of those harsh sunrises and it spoke of evil things later in the day, unless you were the owner of a panel beating business and the day's weather events secured your future for months ahead.
