Jumping ahead of myself but ‘inspired’ by Bill’s recent excellent photos, here’s 3 taken on the morning of taking my sad leave of Morey-St-Denis. Taken over the wall from Arlaud’s entrance for the first 2, and from the wall at the top of the car park for the bar/boulangerie, these were taken about 7.30 a.m. as the sun came up over the eastern horizon. The orange glow infused the walls of the village in a lovely way.

Ah the Boulangerie – home of a hearty plate-full of lunch for relative peanuts – best taken outside in the summer watching all the potential ways for cars to drive through/around/over(?) the little ‘square’…
Actually, despite lots of locals telling you “on a clear day you can see Mont Blanc….”, it’s mornings exactly like this where you see its silhouette, just before the sun comes over (it!) the horizon!
That’s pretty funny Bill and made me laugh i.e ways for cars to get through the ‘square’ in Morey !
Know exactly what you mean having seen some bizarre drving there myself – particularly at vendange time.
Can also empathise with your comments about Mont Blanc – there was a lengthy debate amongst my fellow vendangeurs one very grey, claggy, morning in the vines about being able to see Mont Blanc (or, on the morning in question absolutely not !).
Those early morning Burgundy sunrises are breathtaking. My humble snaps just don’t really do justice. The orange glow on the buildings was beautiful briefly and the horizon amazing.
