life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

Sunrise over The Solent

I recently travelled to the Isle of Wight for a job. The house was delightfully close to the seafront, so on days when I could see it was going to be a great sunrise, I was able to slip out for a few minutes and enjoy the privilege.


It reminds me of a quote that I love:

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Marcus Aurelius : 121-180

sunrise in Malvern

In my job, I am lucky enough to travel to some of the most beautiful areas of the UK. Sometimes I am even luckier in that I get to stay in some superb houses…..of which the current house is a Victorian Gothic 3 story edifice….my room is in the attic…which I adore. It also faces east, and so it is that I get to see some of the most amazing sunrises you could wish to see….lucky me 🙂
