Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

There’s a bit of a story behind this particular image, posted in response to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge ‘Awakening’.

In October 2004 we came to France with the express purpose of finding a house to buy. We stayed in a gîte – I can’t remember the exact location, but it was somewhere in the Vienne département – and I brought with me my first digital camera, a 3MP Olympus compact (really good lens, by the way).

One morning – upon awakening, you could say – I looked out of the bedroom window and saw the dawn mist in the shallow dip between the hamlet where we were staying and the local village.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 10 – Morning

For Week 10 of her 52 Weeks Photo Challenge, The Girl That Dreams Awake has chosen the topic of ‘Morning’.

Naturally enough, ‘morning’ is often equated with ‘beginning’. When we came to France in 2004 to look for a home to buy we stayed in a gite, from the window of which I took this picture of early morning mist. So it also marks a beginning.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Now

Not quite now, but about half an hour ago: dawn over Tranquility Base, as seen from my bedroom window.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

I’m a lucky man in so many ways that every day is a treat – especially when a new dawn comes over the fields like this.
