Inspiration for Sunrise Over Frost and Fog came from my early morning daily commute between Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland. On many mornings during the cold and dark winter months, the view outside the train window presented a frosty white ground with a tranquil fog stretching across rolling hills and still lochs. Throughout the countryside journey, I’d get to watch the sun rise and burn away the frost and fog.
