Without a doubt there have been enough sunset pictures posted here over the years, most of them showing that almost iconic, huge date palm silhouetted against the fading light.
Did you know that if you get up really early, like, before the sun comes up, there can be pretty clouds and colors in the sky in the east also?!
Did you know that if you’re standing out in the shadows in the front yard at 06:30-ish and holding a camera you can get the neighbor to come and yell at you and demand to know who you are and what you’re doing?
I didn’t either, but it’s a good thing to know. As soon as he got close enough to recognize me and I told him what I was taking pictures of it was all copacetic. (“Honey, you’re never gonna guess what that whack-job with the cameras next door is doing now!”) But it’s good to know that if there’s an oddball hanging about in the dark they’ll get challenged and not ignored.
This sunrise wasn’t nearly as amazing as some of the sunsets we’ve gotten, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t get some beautiful sunrises. It just means that I’m usually still asleep then.
Might need to think about changing that.
