Sunrise Spectacular

When 'Little B' woke up early this morning- at 5:30am, I lay in bed moaning "you've got to be kidding! I need more sleep!". So after hauling myself out of bed and having fed her, I was welcomed with this beautiful sunrise. A small reward.

A bit of early morning research;
Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning.

A red sunrise reflects the dust particles of a system that has just passed from the west. This indicates that a storm system may be moving to the east. If the morning sky is a deep fiery red, it means a high water content in the atmosphere. So, rain is on its way. Information came from here.
