Sunrise From The Sunroom



It was a source of some confusion when I arrived in "the sunshine state". Sunrooms in all the traditional Queenslander houses. Why would you want a sunroom? It's bloody boiling!

I've been convinced however that these low-ceilinged rooms surrounded by windows are great for maximising the winter sun - and very eco-friendly. Unfortunately I don't live in a Queenslander house and don't have a sunroom but my friend Sandra does - and she took this picture of the sunrise last week from the comfort of it. Not a bad view to wake up to, eh?

For skies across the world in posts from blogs across the world, visit Skywatch Friday ...and have a fantastic weekend.

Yes, the sunrooms are great in winter. I have to go out of my house to get warm in winter!

Great shot Sandra...and thanks for sharing it with Cara. Cara, you are up on top of the list this morning, how late did you have to stay up to do that?

cara said...

Thanks to everyone for coming and visiting I think this might be record breaking territory as far as comments go... and it's not even my picture! D'oh!

Annie - it was pure luck! I had to be out of the house by 5.45am so I was up at 5.25 and posted at 5.30... it came as a lovely surprise to be first.. it was like winning a raffle or something!
