Sunrise & Sunset

The New Year Breaks

In the last couple of years I have made it a point to capture the January 1st sunrise and this year I managed to capture sunset as well.  It’s nice to wake up to a new year dawn albeit a moody dawn this year.

The sun peeking through the wood at 7:00 am, under a moody sky.

It was a little too cold to wait out in the garden so I went out every 30 minutes.  The new year starts with a gold swash across a blue sky.

At 7:30 am, the golden light start pushing out the cloud
At 7:30 am, gold light starts to push out from the clouds

Then blue sky by 8 am.

Finally the blue sky of the new year
Finally the blue sky of the new year

I don’t remember who said that we ‘can’t appreciate the light without the darkness.’  After hours of daylight, darkness comes to visit at 5pm accompanied by a sliver of moon.

The sun set at 5pm, however there was still some light at the horizon. The moon has already rise
The sunset at 5pm, though still some light at the horizon. The moon has already risen.

Nature is true to it course: sunrise and sunset everyday…never to fail.  If we could only apply this knowledge, this lesson, to life, our society, humanity.

    1. I agree with you there. Still much to learn after all these years. I wanted to photograph the sunset on the last day of the year too, but I had to work.
