Sunrise on a Sunday

I’ve been awake since 4am today. Had a really bad dream where my friend and I were attacked by a swarm of religious fundamentalist aunties. Don’t let their veil of piety fool you! =p Hmmm… Stupid dream. Couldn’t go back to sleep after that.

4am. All is still.

After a very futile attempt to return to sleep, I decided that I should begin my day a little differently. Brewed a huge pot of my delicious genmaicha (brown rice green tea), turned on my study lamp, and started reading a book.

It wasn’t long before the sun began to rise. What a beautiful sunrise. It’s been a long time since I last saw one. I guess it wasn’t so bad waking up at 4am afterall.

Here’s the photo sequence of the sunrise from about 6.45am to about 7.20am.
