Moments of beauty

A few days I ago I mentioned finding the beauty in things and I had a perfect example this morning as I drove to work. A glorious view unfurled beneath me as I drove down the hill. As usual my camera was tucked away in my bag. Mind you I was on the motorway so couldn’t really stop..

The sun was up, white-yellow through clouds, wafting salmon pink mist across the city like a blanket. Sprawling chimneys and gangling tower blocks dangled through the cloud. Layers of light broke away towards the hills on the horizon, shading each rise and fall, buildings picked out in silhouette, windows flashing sunlight.

15 seconds later the road dipped and it was gone. A small moment but it took my breath away.

    Moment of beauty: The kitchen fitter’s van coming into view at the time they stated.

    Did they show up?

    It is nice that in the middle of all this kitchen trauma you can appreciate the view.
