Sunrise with contrails

On Thursday morning the sun rose in a clear sky. Tasha and I had just left for our morning walk and I turned to look back toward the east. The photo makes it look darker than it was. The sun was up over the horizon but still behind the trees in the background.

The sunrise over our little hamlet on Thursday.

Summer vacation is winding down now. French kids go back to school in less than a week. If you've been reading this blog, you know that the weather has not been good for most of this year's summer. July was a lot worse than August, and the weather has been better down on the Mediterranean coast. What will Indian summer bring?


  1. Some of the US states have already started the new school year; I always find it a bit odd that they go back so early.
    Lovely picture, you can feel the quiet.

  2. mitch, thanks!

    bettyann, merci!

    emm, that seems weird to me, too. Why, when I was lad, it was never before Labor Day. Get off my lawn!

  3. dear me I read this as sunrise with cocktails.
