Mountain rays…

In the mountains the light can change in an instant, it can be different in a blink of an eye. It can be warming, soothing and evocative.

This particular sunrise was pretty much a non event in the special light stakes… I waited patiently to see what it may do on the rock faces once it crept above the peaks on the horizon. Once it did I was mesmerised by not only it’s warming glow on these massive granite walls but the amazing sun rays it cast across the valleys.
