Autumn sunrise over the outer suburbs.  South Bristol wakens.  People are walking their dogs, people are driving to work.  And people, the older ones mostly, are wishing “Good morning!” to friends – and to strangers – alike.  Mine is a generation more at ease with such warm, general greetings, whereas many from younger generations walk past with heads bowed, staring fixedly at the ground or into their mobile phones.

But many is the time that the cheerful uttering of these simple words – along with however brief a moment of eye contact – has raised a smile and reply from an otherwise downcast or introspective countenance – and that, to me, is something certainly worthwhile.

And, as a backdrop to all this human activity below, Our Star edges up towards the horizon.  The clouds to the east are already radiant in its glare, whereas some of those closer overhead remain – for just a little while longer – within Our Planet’s shadow.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  1. Your post brings to mind the song “Good Morning Starshine”😊. Lovely shot!


  2. Lynn already mentioned the range of colors, and I’m struck as well with the variety of tones. You have the black silhouettes and brilliant white clouds, with shades of sky in between. This photograph is worth staring at for a long time, and I did.

    Quite a beautiful landscape! The range of colors and the filigree silhouette, the smudge of clouds, and then a friendly “Good morning!” to top it off, there’s no question that nothing more is needed.
