spectacular sunrise?

Because of the ash in the atmosphere to the East of the UK, there was talk that there would be a spectacular sunrise. Unfortunately I only awoke at 5:45 so by the time I got to the beach I'd missed the pre-dawn and sunrise itself. It's clearly a fine dawn but I've seen it this nice before without the aid of ash. Still a joy to be there.

I would have asked myself the same question: Is the sunrise at the moment more spectacular than on comparable days with clear, blue sky?
I in Germany can't see any differences in the sky, except the absence of vapour trails, although we have to feel the fallout / the consequences because of the closure of airspace.
