Riley's dawn

Riley woke me up early, and seemed to need to go out for his first loo call. So I threw a few clothes on, grabbed the camera, and sallied forth, into the twilight.

There was no sign of urgency from Riley now, and he led me up the road till we saw the reddening clouds. Good boy Riley. You knew I would want to photograph this, even so long before sunrise.

While I snapped, Riley demolished a ten foot log all over the road. He looked well satisfied, as was I. (I did wish that I had brought a wider angle lens with me, as so much more of the sky was on fire.)

 

A little while later the sun appeared (see below) -- and also a rainbow. (Please let me know if they vanish again.) zxgirl has queried whether it is a triple rainbow. What do you think?

 

I think it's worth it LARGER>
