Writing exercise: Description of a Transitional Moment.

A serene scene of a protagonist standing on a hillside, watching the sunrise. The sky transitions from dark blue to vibrant hues of orange, pink, and yellow as the sun begins to rise. The landscape below is a mix of shadowed valleys and gradually illuminating fields. The protagonist is silhouetted against the brightening sky, experiencing a moment of tranquility and reflection.
