If you can drag yourself out of bed before sunrise, the whole day feels deliciously long. Usually the alarm only goes off at some ungodly hour to begin my immense commute. So, a wake up call to watch the sun rise over the sea and drink a hot flask of coffee makes a welcome change.
We walked over three bays in the morning light and back across wet and muddy fields (is there any other kind this month?!) Home by half nine and filled up with brunch, we couldn’t resist the pull of those blue skies. So we headed out West on our bikes to soak up the sun in the other direction. It seems that time spent outdoors simply prompts you to find more of it. And a day topped and tailed with the sun over the sea is my favourite kind.
beautiful. how I envy both the locations and the ability to get up before sunrise.
Thanks Gemma. I hear you- early starts are not exactly anyone’s forte!
These photos are so beautiful. This post has really inspired me to make an effort to get up early and make the most of a lovely long day :)
grace & flower
Ooh, I love a bit of blog inspiration! I’ll be looking out for your sunrise shots.
Gorgeous photos! I’m sometimes up by sunrise although not by choice :-) Usually I get an early wake up call from one of my boys. x
i love how long the days feel when you wake up early! i’ve been trying to do that more often. it’s the best feeling to have accomplished something before sunrise :)
So beautiful, I wish to be greeted by the breeze from the sea every morning!

Thank you! The early light always makes photos better. ;)
