My son and I went for an early morning walk to watch the sunrise.
Here are some pictures to share. I hope you like them.
(Thank you to Woodrow for lending me some space on his Photobucket account!)

This is our local river:


This is the same river from a different perspective. It is running quite high at the moment:


I love this 'purple tree':


The next two pictures show how quickly the light changed in a matter of 10-15 minutes:




This one is my favourite. My son took it whilst leaning precariously over the railings of the old Grand Union Canal aquaduct :scared::

Peace, al_islam

I see you live in London.
This time of year the sun doesn't rise until 8-ish ... so you don't have to get up very early to see it rise!

In six months time it will be a different matter! :D

I would have thought that Muslims have every opportunity to see the sun rise, given that they wake up for Fajr before sunrise ...

yes the purple tree is beautiful - i have never seen the sky that colour. maybe it is because you are so far north?

Right then, before I log off, here's the challenge:

I want to see some pictures tomorrow, taken by you at the crack of dawn!! Come on, you sleepy-heads ... you can do it! :D

Between Fajr and going back to bed, just take a picture of the view from your window!!
Remember to go to bed early though. For those of you in the UK, that means NOW! :uhwhat

i think one reason i could never be a muslim! i can't imagine waking up for prayers - esp. when it's cold.
i'm a night person and only see dawn when i'm either still up or when i get up to go to the bathroom.
but i must say when i lived in canada i would watch dawn come up over lake ontario and it was awesome because it is so gradual up north...it was enough to make you want to pray (though i didn't back then).

Beautiful pictures..the last one seems like something you'd see on a postcard :)

Sunsets and sunrises here are various...they can be plane and blue or multicoloured.

Most of the sunsets are stunning,with a mix of pink,vivid orange,purple and light blue all blended together...stunning scene,*just remembers*Waiit!I have pictures!I just remembered.

LOL.

here,(not very good quality though,I took them with my cell :S.The light colours should be darker and the darker colours should be lighter,strange,I know):

Sunset:

Nice picture, Sabeeha.
Looking forward to your next one.

I wonder if there is a way of telling from a picture whether it is a sunset or a sunrise??? (Not knowing the direction it was taken in, of course ...)

Is the light different in any way?

I think you could, if you had several pictures from the same general area at the same time of year and some taken at sunset and some taken at sunrise. There should be a difference in the shade of red seen with the brighter red seen at sunset. this will be because the sunset one is light passing through warmer air and because the daylight air typically contains more dust that causes brighter colors for then the sunrise one.

So if I see 2 pictures I would probably be right in saying the brighter one is a sunset.

you can see a difference between an sunset and a sunrise. At night is less pollution, so the air is cleaner. The light diffused by the sun appears more bright as it has to pass less dust particles, though, changes less to the red spectrum, speak infrared. During day, pollution is more intense, so when sunset, the light coming from the sun, again, has to cross longer distance through atmosphere. So the frequency of the light turns into the red, the sun appears red glowing.
Note, that a sunset over the ocean is not so red glowing as over a city like New York, because the air is not so polluted.
In the eye of a romatic person, an sunset over an polluted city is more beautiful than over the ocean, as more red glowing.

Excuse me my bad english, specially when explaining scientific stuff

I took these just a few minutes ago. Yes it is sunrise here in Austin.









I just had to add this one for contrast. This is about 30 minutes after the above picture, taken from my patio. The colors fade so fast when the sun breaks the horizon.

They are very nice picture. the graininess of a cell phone gives a textured appearance that reminds of the type of landscapes of Monet. I know professional photographers that use all kinds of filters and screens on their cameras to try to get that effect.

I love it when the water looks like silver ice admixed with a touch of sunshine..
it is a disparity of emotions... sometimes I feel like silver water admixed with sunshine but I am not quite sure how that would translate to an emotion?..thanks for sharing the monet.. I enjoy art/art history tremendously

Well... Malaysia is in the heartland of southeast Asia, the place where there are millions type of Ghosts.

Have you ever seen a Thai ghost movie? Thais and Malays adhere to different religions, but the ghosts are just the same.

For me, ghosts are not the spirits of dead people, but they are satans and jinns.:skeleton:

"Ghost Hunters" is so famous in Malaysia. In fact we have lots of groups like them... we also have reality show called "Entiti" ("Entity") where a volunteer would be taken to a haunted place and leaved there from 12.00 AM until 5.00 AM.
