Sunrise 24 April - Sally Evans Witts

Hull, you are beautiful!

As the red hot dot of burning orange rose and grew, I noticed so many pastel shades and hues in the skies above Hull.  Perspective offers calm and clarity if you adjust it and see things from a different angle and this was no exception.  I noticed no people, only an enthralling visual orchestra of time-stamped architecture, flowing willow branches, rippling water and the majestic arc of seagulls.  I noticed the different tempos as the city woke up.  As the sun rose the colours faded.  As Robert Browning wrote: ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay.’  But, if things like a sunrise were permanent, would they be as special?
