The sun is rising at a more reasonable hour these days so it was off up to the roof to see what was going on. Hardly any clouds, so no spectacular bursts of colour. Interesting nevertheless, particularly the light on the sea.
Having woken up at ridiculous o’clock and been unable to get back to sleep I decided to go out around silly o’clock and watch the sunrise on the Balcón de Europa.
A bit of rain early this morning to clear the air, a short burst of wind – thought a storm might be brewing, but it wasn’t – and then a mixture of sun and cloud.
And then the sun slowly popped its head above the hills to spread its warmth and light over the Balcón de Europa.
Looking eastwards, towards Burriana beach and Maro, from the Balcón de Europa in Nerja.
As it was Looking Down Friday, no option but to take a few snaps in that ilk. First up is the view down to Carabeo beach in Nerja.
A thick sea mist, completely covering the horizon, began to creep slowly towards shore at around midday. Normally they roll in quite rapidly, but not this one for some reason.
The early worm gets eaten by the bird, as the saying goes, and I was up early enough to check out the sunrise from the roof terrace. At 8:02, the sun popped its hat on and rose above the horizon.
The odd white cloud in the sky makes a nice change, adds even more character I think. Never tire of looking at the hills.
This is the time of year when the sun and clouds combine to make interesting shapes, patterns and colours. Sunset over Torrecilla beach in Nerja on Monday evening was quite good, some nice reflections.
