Tree Aflame

I got up in darkness, quickly dressed and gathered my equipment. I’m glad people who stay in RV parks are used to the sound of big trucks starting early in the morning for no one ever comments on my early departures. I drove to the beach and then walked as quickly as I could to the location I scouted out the day before when the sun was high in the sky, its harsh rays washing out all colour.

What a difference it made to be there early in the morning when the sun was just rising above the horizon. The soft light touched the tips of the tree branches making them glow as if they were on fire.
