A glorious morning

Published about 4 years ago by Margie

I am so used to waking early to prepare breakfast for our guests so today although we don't have any guests staying today was no exception.  I was up at 6 with the birds.  I am so pleased I woke up early as the sunlight on the lodge, the garden and the surrounding hills was quite extraordinary.  You know sometimes when you look at the sky it lgihts up areas as if they have spot lights on them.  Well this morning it was our turn.  I managed to get some beautiful photos.  Everything looked amazing.  Now as I write this it is misty and raining and hard to believe how beautiful everything was just a few short hours ago.  Mind you even the mist on the mountains has its own kind of beauty.
