SUNRISE ON A COLD WINTER’S MORNING – Marilyn Armstrong

We seem to get our best sunrises on the quarter of the year. Sometimes glorious during the Vernal Equinox in March and just around Christmas, if the sky is clear, the eastern horizon lights up. Sometimes, it looks as if the house is on fire when the sky is that deep scarlet.

This morning, I woke up and realized I had nothing to drink. The dogs were barking anyway and Garry was sleeping like the veritable log, so I got up and made my way into the kitchen.

I poured myself something wet and cold … and looked out the window. The sun was just coming up and it was beautiful.

I can’t see the sky in the summer or fall. When the trees are full of leaves, all I see are leaves. But when the trees are bare, I can’t see the sky unbroken, but I can see it. Since I now have cameras ready and waiting for the shots, I just grabbed one and took half a dozen shots. I gave each dog a couple of little biscuits and headed to bed for a few more hours.

It’s almost the winter solstice and the sunrises are bright with the glory of the turning of the earth. And I have cameras!

  1. You would love the view of the sunrises I get from Mecca when I get off work this time of the year. I don’t like bringing a camera to work since I don’t have a locker nor do I want to leave it in my car all night, but I really have to try and capture one sometime since it’s the only place I can see a sunrise unobscured…

    1. The ONLY unobsured place to see the sunset here is driving down our road westward. If we get the light just right and I have a camera on me, we can pull of the road and grab a shot Otherwise, there are just too many trees and buildings.
