Awakenings

The other morning for no apparent reason I woke extremely early, 4-30am I think it was. Normally I would just turn over and go back to sleep but I just happened to catch sight of the sky as the sunrise was taking place. I couldn't see much from where I was, so I thought I'll get up and take a better look. I'm so glad I did, as the sun was coming up it was kind of back lighting the clouds. I didn't have time to find my camera so I grabbed my phone and leaned out of the window and took the first picture. I thought that was ok, but decided it would be better to take some from outside in the street.
Quickly I threw some shorts on and dashed down stairs. I got into the street and took 3 other pics, stood there bare foot and boxers, not a pretty sight for the neighbors. Hopefully they were all sound asleep.
I went inside again and realized my camera was on a lower resolution, so I altered the settings, ran back outside but the effect had gone. The angle of the sun must have been perfect for a few minutes then changed and the effect was no more. Anyway hope you enjoy the resulting pics. One was chosen for photo of the day by the BBC and resides now in their Flickr site, which is very nice. Hopefully I can use them myself in my future projects.
