  1. Oh, that is magnificent, Graham. What a glorious sight.
    Although I was awake to see the sunrise this morning, the low cloud and heavy rain meant that there was nothing to see.

  2. Looks gorgeous. Wet snow here and barely light so this image was much appreciated.

  3. Just beautiful. This view is much needed this morning, as it's gloomy and wet here today.

  6. I am not sure it gets much better than this, Graham. I could try to add some descriptive prose but the picture speaks for itself.

  7. Now that's a view that might make me want to get up early rather than go straight back to bed in the morning...

  10. Yet more proof that heaven is actually Scotland. Or vice versa.

  12. Red in the morning... heart lifting sunrise but how was the rest out the day out of interest? Did the old saying that it's a warning of rain hold true?

  15. You are so right, this post with this stunning photo doesn't require individual replies from you. As anyone can clearly see it is amazingly beautiful!

  16. Sailboat on a Purple Sea - by Phil Lindsey

    Sailboat on a purple sea
    Yellow skies are all she sees
    Lonely Captain at the helm
    Lord o’er all her ocean realm.

    Sailboat on a purple sea
    Sailing through Eternity
    The yellow skies reveal her ardor
    Searching for inlet or harbor.
    Where she can safely drop her anchor
    Without hostility or rancor
    Stay forever, or a day
    If on a whim she sails away.
    To search again for other shores
    Unmindful of the ocean’s mores.
    Sometimes storms impede her course
    Fill her journey with remorse
    Thunder sounds a deaf’ning roar
    Through driving rain, can’t see the shore
    Lightning bolts around her flash
    As if to call the Captain brash
    For thinking that she has control
    Over purple ocean’s vitriol.

    If ever she regrets her plight
    When yellow skies turn dark at night
    And midnight storms have lead to loss
    She rights the ship and bears the cross
    And waits for morning dawn to break
    Sun through last night’s rain will make
    A rainbow reaching far away
    Certainly it will show the way
    To steer her sailboat that day.

    Sailboat on a purple sea
    Yellow skies are all she sees
    Buoyant Captain at the helm
    Lord o’er all her ocean realm.
