I’m up early again today, although this time it wasn’t the light that woke me. I actually managed to beat the light by about half an hour. I woke up shortly after 4 a.m. and it was still fairly dark, although there was a hint that things would be getting brighter soon. The birds started singing soon after and by 4:30, things were getting quite light. I gave up trying to get back to sleep around 4:45 and was outside taking photos (why not?) by 4:50.
As you can see here, this one was taking at about 4:52 a.m. Pretty bright out, isn’t it! The street lamps were still on, but were superfluous by that point. I wasn’t the only person up and about, though. As I was taking a few more pictures, I was passed by a lone biker, as well as a group of three women cycling past and chatting amongst themselves.
Considering how warm it’s been and how warm it’s expected to be all week, I might not fight these early mornings. They seem like the perfect time to get up and out for a nice walk before it gets too warm. Too bad I’ll have to go on my own, since Pippo is still asleep — in my spot, no less!
