I’m not naturally an early riser but, once I’m up I actually like mornings and how long and full of potential the day ahead seems. I think I’m a reluctant morning person. Which is why in the last couple of weeks I’ve been forcing myself to get up earlier than usual. I like that I can enjoy my breakfast without being too rushed, I can get a couple of chores done and still have all the day ahead. But I’m still very grumpy when the alarm goes off in the morning when it’s still dark.
I’ve also incorporated a small change in my commute, which means that – temporarily – I get to walk through the sleepy Oxford town centre at sunrise. I’ve snapped these pictures (and a few more on Instagram) on various mornings when it wasn’t raining. I’ve reached the conclusion that gorgeous medieval buildings at sunrise make early mornings better.
