MORNING SKIES IN MELBOURNE

This morning in Melbourne it was cold and brisk and by the time I was getting to work, the sun was just rising and the Eastern skies became gold and red. This is the view towards the East from the top end of Bourke Street in the City.

This post is part of Sylvia's Skywatch Friday meme,
and also part of James' Weekend Reflections meme.

  1. This would be a beautiful walk in the mornings, Nick. A trifle cold I agree, but what a sight to meet the eyes. I do hope you were walking and not driving.
