‘Watch the sunrise at least once a year’

Olhao marina at SunriseI’ve never read H. Jackson Brown’s ‘Life’s Little Instruction‘ book, but his sunrise tip is one I strongly recommend. Others you may like include flossing your teeth, drinking champagne for no reason at all, being suspicious of all politicians and planting a tree on your Birthday. I think I may acquire the book!

Sunrise over Ria Formosa

At this time of year in the northern hemisphere it is relatively easy to go out at dawn, as sunrise isn’t too early. So if you haven’t yet managed to watch it this year make a note to yourself to have a go before the end of year. And if you manage to get up in time this month it is also a wonderful opportunity to see beautiful lines; essential if you are taking part in a photo blogging challenge titled lines&squares!

If you have been enjoying this blog for a few years then you will know I regularly rise at dawn, and have over the years been spoilt by the sunrises over the Ria Formosa. It is a wonderful way to start the day.

Good Morning!

  1. I totally agree with ‘watching sunrise’…..Nature offers such a kaliedoscope of stunning colours, EVERY day. As your photos show..no two days are the same.

  2. Stunning images, Becky.
    And with a view like that, getting up for dawn should be mandatory!
    I did my sunrise duty in Venice last week – another place where it’s a MUST 🙂

Love to hear your thoughts
