Golden Morning

Rising with the sun this morning for a change, I walked out onto our front verandah to collect the morning newspaper and came upon this glorious sight.  We'd had a dense sea mist rolling in during the night, accompanied by the mournful sound of the foghorns down in the harbour and now the sun was making a spectacular appearance through the the gossamer clouds.  We live on the slopes on Table Mountain and that's Devil's Peak in the background.

A lone pigeon, one of a flock which wait every morning, for my neighbour to scatter breadcrumbs on the sidewalk.  Occasionally, a golden labrador strolls past on its morning walk, scatters the birds and hoovers up the remaining crumbs.

The sun, climbing higher now and lighting up the gardens with golden light.

And, finally bursting through the mist in full radiance, this whole sequence occurring in the space of three minutes.

Such a change from the two feet of snow I'm looking at!
