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?
