The Light of Sunrise

The sun was beginning to rise above the mountains in the eastern sky, cloaking the atmosphere with a dusty pink glow ready to awaken the city of Jeddah from its slumber.

This is so interesting! I wonder, did you see the sun as a solid, red ball, also? Yet it photographed as white? I cannot work this out! I took other photos with a different camera, but lost them somehow - they are not to be found!!!! Here I am in NYC and there you are in Arabia - are you living in a high rise that enables your particular views?

Yes, Margaret - The sun was red. I tried playing with the settings but I couldn't get it to come out as I was actually seeing it. I really wish the photos would have come out the way I saw it. It was brilliant. Yes, I live on the 6th floor and I took my pics from the rooftop above our flat.
