The Sun Must Rise On A Brand New Year

As I ended the year with sunsets, so it seems appropriate for my first fresh post of the year to go with sunrises. In December I was up on occasion with the sun. Crossing Bronson Avenue to head over to the university one morning, I took these two shots.


A few days later after one of our snowfalls, I was also making the crossing and photographed another dawn. The first shot is along Bronson Avenue, the second is on campus at Carleton University, and the third is in Little Italy, courtesy of a quick train ride to the next stop north of campus. A few minutes of time had elapsed, all in all.

  11. @Cloudia: winter took long enough to establish itself!

    @Tamera: here it rises around quarter after seven to seven thirty this time of year. In the summer there's no way I'm awake to see a sunrise.

    @Gunn: thank you!

    @Nancy: thanks!

    @Chrissy: that particular snowfall didn't last long, but what we've got on the ground now isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    @Marianne: the snow finally showed itself!

    @Jan: thank you!

    @Norma: thank you.

    @EG: at least in winter I'm more likely to see a dawn!

    @Furry Gnome: I thought it was appropriate.

    @Marleen: thank you!

    @Red: these were two of the very few days in December we had blue skies.
