Sunrise over Firenze: Piazza Michelangelo

Thanks to the jetlag, I woke up early and made my way to the Piazza Michelangelo across the river to catch the sunrise.

It was already light when I reached this flight of stairs, so I was slightly disappointed.

But not complaining about the reward of the view over the city!

I turned to go, and saw an intense glow of orange over the river – I hadn’t missed the sunrise after all!

See the sun caress the city with its Midas touch –

Breath-taking, and well worth braving the chills.

Another special one for the season (with my shadow on the bottom left, hehe)
