Colourful Skies - a soft pink sunrise over Taputeranga

Living in Wellington, especially by the coast, has made me much more aware of the wind - a feature of this location - and the rapidly changing cloudscapes that result.  Wonderful clouds can mean gorgeous skies as the sun rises and sets.  Some people are a bit churlish about photographs of sunrise and sunset, regarding them as tired cliches.  But I keep being entranced by the transient beauty created by the clouds and light, and unapologetically offer you this image - the first of many, I am sure. 

Tranquil (to my eyes) and dramatic - soft pink sunrise over Taputeranga and Island Bay
