Blackrock Morning

It was cold, ice formed on all the windscreens overnight yet I cycled up the hill to capture the morning sky a few days ago.
I was trying to capture the wonderful sunset I had spotted moments earlier as the sun crept over the distant hills but by the time I reached my spot the sun was well up over the horizon.
Instead I was treated to an absolutely blue and beautiful sky with a hint of the rising sun!
This image is the result of minor manipulation in the GIMP, I adjusted colour levels, brought the blue of the sky out a bit using 2 levels and the contrast tool, merging them in the middle. I hope you like my efforts!
