A Pastel Sunrise

Ciao Amalfi Coast Travel Pastel Sunrise Over Ravello

Waking up to a colorful sky on the Amalfi Coast

I’m going to run the risk of offending all you night owls that may be reading and just say it. I love waking up early. There, now you know! The early morning is such a glorious time of day with the first light, the colors creeping across the mountains and the sound of birds fluttering about in their happy way. Before the noise and craziness of the day begins there’s a moment of complete peace.

Ciao Amalfi Coast Travel Pastel Sunrise Pink and Blue


This morning started a little earlier than usual, which meant I had a good look at Orion and the Pleiades in the dark, clear sky when I first opened the window. I took a look after breakfast and the sky had been splashed with pastel shades of pink and blue. Gorgeous!

Everything was pink. Looking out to the Bay of Salerno even the sea was tinted pink. Usually the sky is a bit more orange during the sunrise, but I’ll take pink for a change.

Wishing you a beautiful day ahead … on the Amalfi Coast or wherever you may be!

    It is certainly a beautiful day in Amalfi Laura. I too am an early bird – much prefer to get up when it is quiet and peaceful.

    I was actually up and saw this from the kitchen window, but couldn’t be bothered to go out and take pics because I hate getting up early and was not in the mood to do ANYTHING!…I’m glad you did it!!

      Too funny, NIcki! 🙂 Your description of how you feel in the morning pretty much sums up how I feel after 10pm at night. Can’t have everything!

    Hi Laura, I’m an early morning person too. Your photos are just beautiful and remind me that I really need to find a way back to Amalfi some time soon!

      Thanks for your kind words, Denise! I hope you’ll be back to Amalfi very soon. 🙂
