Dawn in the fjords of Chile [III]

The first sunlight grazed the peaks at about 5:30 a.m. as we sailed steadily north through the fjords of Chile. Only a few other keen people had risen, but the early start rewarded us with scenes like this.

Such beautiful light on that distant peak.
Early morning is so often the very best time of the day (I didn't realise this until I retired).

That blue in the sky is my most beloved color. Glimpsed occasionally at twilight.

RR, I've realised it for a very long time. Summoning the willpower to take advantage of it — that's a different matter ;^)

Zhoen, yes, it can be truly beautiful, but it changes so quickly — sometimes into something just as gorgeous, sometimes into nondescript grey.

love that beautiful glimpse of the day that's coming on the top of the peak - like a gift to you for being up early enough to notice.

Thanks Leonie :^)
