Remember when you were a teenager and all you wanted to do was sleep in (or was that just me)? My mother would come in and tell me to get up as I was missing the best part of the day. Turns out she was right. I was up early today (funnily enough due to my mother staying over), and couldn't resist catching these images of the sunrise from the veranda.
The thin crescent moon was an added bonus when I looked at the pictures.
As were the faint "sun rays".
