about one hour before dawn

strange small distant cloud

well before sunrise here in Chelmsley Wood

just the view south east from my bedroom window in Merton House

throgh my Lidl binoculars

you could use this at 15% as a background

zooming in and chromatic aberration

chromatic aberration - Google Search: how I checked the spelling of "Chromatic Aberration" and chromatic aberration - Google Image Search - is even more informative for this subject

when I woke up on sunday

I was excited to see a crane at Chelmsley Wood telephone exchange
0121 770 ****
because Talktalk is upgrading my dsl WAN connection from up to 2 mbs to 8 mbs as soon as BT get the mainframe organised

800 metres away as the crow flies

talktalk 8mbs - Google Search or talktalk 8mbps - Google Search

Free Broadband with our Talk3 Call Plan - TalkTalk - Join our Talk3 calling plan and get Free Broadband. - and a technician phoned to say that my swich over or upgrade was delayed.

and then this dawn led to a cloudy day

moon by day

clear sky means pollution was colouring the lower atmosphere

and a vapour trail

buses at the stop by Macdonalds in Chelmsley Wood

Happy new year

I awoke too early after a disturbed dream possibly prompted by the TV images of the execution of Saddam Hussein - Google Search and - Google Image Search

but the beauty of the pre-dawn sky made me feel better at once

looking south east towards Chelmsley Wood

she was talking loudly on her mobile phone

looking north east towards Coleshill

on Bosworth Drive

I am always looking for ideas for web page backgrounds

I feel better now
after a nice cup of tea and my breakfast
