When I left the house the clouds looked just right to be illuminated from below across the sky. There was a nice gap at the horizon with several layers of clouds hovering overhead. I thought the view from Mount Pollux would be nice with some of the dead apple trees and hanging ivy silhouetted against the color. As time passed though, it became obvious that the light wasn’t going to be strong until the sun had crested the horizon. Not quite my visualized image but it was a nice start to the day just the same.
