That most secretive of ladies, dawn, has been letting us down lately because we've pretty well had a succession of drab grey starts to the day so here's a couple of dawn taken a few weeks ago to liven things up a little.
The photographs were all taken from the rear of course.
At the top, well, that's mother nature's mad colouring book at work and very lovely it is too. Below, that's a promise of some really stormy weather on the way so it goes to show what she can achieve if she puts her mind to it.
Personally I blame the jet-stream.
She must have heard me having a moan about her because here's dawn in all her finery this morning. Fantastic.
