When the dawn rolls back the night and the mists billow in the dale and that first blush of daylight tints the horizon, it is breathtaking. You watch… first the warmth of colour, then the flooding light that spreads over the world… then the sliver of flame that rises, becoming the disc of the sun in a sky of liquid gold.
