Small reward for my early starts  
The sky really turned it on this morning with an utterly glorious sunrise.

This was the view from the front of my house, facing east; the light behind the trees actually looked like the glow of a bushfire, it was so intense.

Looking northeast, and including the thinnest crescent moon still brightly visible:

And finally spinning around to face the west, where the early rays hadn't quite penetrated:

There was some truth to the saying "red sky at dawning, sailor's warning" as the day was quite windy. Down south had it a lot worse than we did, though.

Spectacular photos! Having grown up by the shore the saying "red sky at dawning..." is a familiar one!

The saying seems to be one of those that is known all over the world.

Makes sense since sailors sailed all over the world. Folk lore travels well. :D

Lovely piccies and I love the differences depending on which way you look. :D

Thank you, yes that's what struck me too. They were all taken within a minute of each other but you wouldn't think so to see the differences in colour.

Gorgeous, thank you! I love the simile of 'like a bushfire' - so ... well, exotic... to me!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed.
Having lived in the Blue Mountains in NSW (my first house!) I am only too familiar with the sight of bushfire. See the map? . The yellowy area represents national park.

The changing skies are endlessly fascinating to me.

We say "Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning" here. :)

Having lived in the country for a number of years (sheep country, at that!) I've heard that version of it as well.
