He wakes up early. Really early. Normally before the sun makes its appearance from behind the horizon line. Some days I cannot really function until a couple of hours later, so I just sit there with my tea and watch him play happily with his toys (somehow he is more interested in his toys first thing in the morning). But some days I feel awake enough to load him into the pram straight after breakfast and to go for a long, lovely walk in the neighbourhood. It is my favourite kind of light at that time of the day, so I make sure I grab my camera on the way out, and off we go, to enjoy the coastal views (me) and the empty playground (him), and chasing an occasional duck (him again).
And when I look at these photos, I see that being the early birds is so worth it.
