Apr 19, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

Iceland, taken on January 27, 2014

While the early bird gets the worm, morning light doesn’t come quite so early during the winter in Iceland. In fact, at 9 in the morning in late January, the sky is still pitch dark, and it only begins to light up slowly at around 10, when this photo was taken. I was on a tour bus around the Golden Circle when we passed by this greenhouse, glowing in its grandeur before the sun came out to outshine its glory. As a friend mentioned, “How can a greenhouse look this beautiful!”

October 29, 2014 – Glaswegian sunrise

The thing about moving to a new time zone is that for the first week or so, my sleeping schedule changes. For the better, actually, because I am now tired by 11pm and wake up automatically at 7am…which I know won’t last long. This morning I woke up and couldn’t fall back asleep, and looking out the window, I saw the morning glow of the city in a distance (photo taken at a position similar to the one on October 26). First Glaswegian sunrise, and hopefully it won’t be the last one I see 😛
