Sunrise Corner

Hello Lovelies,
on Saturday night I set my alarm. All week I have to get up early, but I'm too busy to enjoy that special time of day.
On Sunday morning I peeped out of the curtains at 7am and was thrilled to see a clear sky and a touch of frost. 
By 7.30 I was heading out of the door with my eldest, who always seems happy to join me...bless him.

My disorganisation this week was to forget to buy any breakfast cereal....so I guess we should have headed to the shops, but I had other plans.

I do love to see  frosty fallen leaves and I love the crunchy sound of walking over  frozen grass.

We wander along the roadside then carefully climb over the icy style that marks the entrance to my favourite footpath........

it's looking particularly lovely this morning.

I'm surprised to hear a dog walker behind us. We let him pass as he seems to be in a hurry , and I want to linger.

I'm totally thrilled by the beautiful light created by the rising sun........


The wild roses that looked so beautiful here in June are now glowing red hips.......


The sunlight illuminates this disused gateway  and everything still looks fresh and green in it's glow......


But in the other direction there is a  backdrop of golden trees.
And the icy coating on the fields and roofs show this is a chilly November morning.


Here the sun had already melted the frost on the old tractor.........


But where it remains everyday objects become so beautiful and everywhere you turn is another glorious picture.............


My companion is first over another frosty style.........


and then we are next to the sheep field..........


It looks like these ladies are waiting for their breakfast and they hurry over to greet us..........

sorry girls, hopefully your owner will be along soon.

Here the path comes out onto the road and this is where I was heading.

Each work day I drive past this field and I knew that.....at this time of year...... and this time of day.... when the sky is clear...... you can see the rising sun , illuminating the field and silhouetting the lovely oak trees on the horizon.........

It's on a bend so I can never stop to admire it properly, but today I could.....so happy, sigh.

The rays are now beginning to melt the light Autumn frost. Each blade of grass has a glittering water droplet at it's tip............


The time is about 8am and we are beginning  to get a bit hungry so we say goodbye to sunrise corner.... 


and walk briskly home, noticing the stunning colour of these cherry tree leaves against the blue sky.......


And passing this lovely old  house, with the prettiest name........


It was hot buttered toast for breakfast, and after our fix of fresh air it tasted wonderful.

p.s. do take a look at these photos in the light box .....by clicking on them.....if you want to see them more clearly.

  3. Beautiful pictures, made me feel quite nostalgic for the wonderful scenes the frost made when we were in Devon, only for a few moments though lol, last winter in a cold snap we did have some ice formed in the water buckets but we very rarely get frost

  7. Beautiful photos. Well worth the early start I think. If I went on an early walk I'm sure my eldest would come too, we're both really early risers. Everything does look utterly magical in that lovely light. I know what you mean about seeing things from the car and wanting to explore and take some time to walk around and enjoy the beauty. Such a lovely post Jacquie.

  9. What beautiful pictures, you certainly have an eye for good subjects. I just love Autumn and Winter and their effect on the trees and plants. I'm almost motivated to get up early and set off with my camera! I live in a town but right next to a park so maybe I could find some good pictures there. Thank you so much for showing your outings to us, I look forward to seeing them.

  10. Stunning, evocative photos. I love all the frosty images, so magical...but what perhaps is most special is that you take the time, that you *make* the time, to walk in these early hours and observe and appreciate the world around us. Wonderful! Chrissie x

  11. What a beautiful morning walk. It was wet from dawn til dusk here on Sunday. We've not had a proper frost yet either - I'm sure it isn't far away though. I'm almost wanting it to get colder so I can take some "frosty" photos!
    Enjoy your week. Sara x

  15. I too love the light at this time of year. We haven't had our first frost yet down here in the South of England so I'm a bit jealous as I love running on a frosty morning.

  20. What a wonderful post Jacquie - so well written and your pics are stunning! It's been many years since I felt and heard the crunch of frozen grass under my feet, and I loved it too: even as I read your words I could hear that magic sound, thank you! It's so lovely that your son enjoys walking with you. Thank you for rekindling happy memories for me! Hugs, Joy xo
