A Welcome Home Sunrise

Welcome Home Sunrise

I’ve just returned home to Australia after some 7-8 months abroad in Europe and one of the first things I noticed was just how much I’ve missed the blue skies and beautiful sunrises I took for granted growing up. I snapped the above photo still half asleep and battling jetlag from my family home yesterday and thought I’d share it. With views like this to wake up to, I can’t help but love this sunburnt country of mine.

    This picture is amazing. I am feeling slightly home sick now. It must feel good to be home.

      Sammy it sure is good to be home. Don’t realise you miss it till you get here.

      Marsha that’s very true. Sadly every day since has been very cloudy.

    We are about to do the opposite – leave beautiful Australia for America/Europe for 6 months!

    Very much looking forward to taking off, but know it will make us appreciate home even more. It always does!

    You inspired us to start a blog – would love if you could check it out! Not much there yet besides a trip we did to Thailand but it will grow 🙂

    Incredible shot, Chris! I can’t wait to see skies like this when I head to Australia in 2014. That really is a lovely welcome home!

      Thanks Becki, you’ll have to come stay with Isabelle and I when you get here.

      Thanks Lisa, I can thank the jetlag for having me up so early to see it. Was a very warm welcome home for sure.

    HI Chris,
    another great photo of the sunburnt Country…. just another reason why l don’t ever need to go back…. You’re photos are so good l can actually imagine me sitting there under the good gumtree, feeling the coolness of the breeze on my skin, after the days heat!
    Now if you could just snap a kanga or koala… l’ll really feel like lm home amongst the gumtrees!!
    many many thanks from across the seas in Portugal,

      Anthea I’ll see what I can find over the next couple of weeks for you 🙂

    Stunning. This photo is making me homesick. Although the sunsets in the Caribbean are pretty rad, so not missing the blue skies so much 😉

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD December 11, 2013 at 9:43 PM #

      Thanks Carmen, I’m sure that Caribbean skyline is just as awesome as home.

    Welcome home!!!!
    I cant agree more!!!
    We own a property in Eudunda SA (in the middle of nowhere!) and everytime we are there, I sit outside with a glass of bubbly and a camera waiting for sunset because the sunset it always a little different.
    Its very relaxing
