light breaks over bandon

Though the solitary figure in this image is human and not canine, I still think of this wonderful stanza from Rupert Brooke's "The Little Dog's Day":

 

All in the town were still asleep,

When the sun came up with a shout and a leap.

In the lonely streets unseen by man,

A little dog danced. And the day began.

 

Lovely, isn't it? There is something about being up for sunrise, especially when no one else seems to be. As if the world had saved its magic just for you. It's a thought that made me smile earlier this morning, too, as my 11-mile run took me from pre-dawn skies into the full-fledged first light of day. But more on that particular subject (running) in a later post.

 

For now, enjoy Bandon's beach at sunrise - there are few places along the coast that I'd rather be.

 

Taken with my Nikon FM (perhaps my Pentax K1000; I'm not sure how old this shot is).
