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.
Winter skies to take your breath away!ReplyDelete
I know it's a lovely time of day, but I never could get up with the sun! Your pictures do it justice!ReplyDelete
Looks nice and COLD, so keep warm and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you.ReplyDelete
Lovely sunrise to greet the new year!ReplyDelete
I like the freshness of the light and snow William!ReplyDelete
I see a lot of snow, real winter images.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, William. Great to start the new year with some wonderful shots of the sunrise.ReplyDelete
What a great idea. Sunrises are so hopeful.ReplyDelete
Very nice sunsets !ReplyDelete
Dawn is such a great time of day!ReplyDelete
Good way to start the new year!ReplyDelete
Great to start the day with these :)ReplyDelete
Sunrise and new year go well together. You had some clear skies with your sunrise.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: winter took long enough to establish itself!ReplyDelete
@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!
@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!
@Janis: I think so too.ReplyDelete
@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.
A beautiful sunrise often signals a wonderful day!ReplyDelete
It is raining heavily here, we would like some sun...ReplyDelete
I don't see the sunrise very often and when I do there are always buildings in the way. Nice shots, William.ReplyDelete

@RedPat: thank you! I'm generally blessed with a lack of high buildings to the south of my home.
@Louisette: thank you!
Great shots William, it's surprising what a difference a few minutes makes at sunrise/sunset...ReplyDelete
Very pretty photos William! I wouldn't mind seeing a little snow, but not much chance of that at my house.ReplyDelete
Love the snow! :)ReplyDelete
Nice shots, but you really need to come to the desert for some vivid colors.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous skies, William! Hope your new year is off to a promising start.ReplyDelete
Nice sunrises. I'm glad you get to see some daylight before you go into an office for the day.ReplyDelete
i love sunrises, hope you had a cup of coffee to wake on up nicely! Happy New Year!! ( :ReplyDelete
Just glorious. What a good idea for first and last!!!!ReplyDelete
When I am tempted to take shots like those first two, I try to pull the covers up and roll over.ReplyDelete
What a tres belle way to start the new year William.. That seems the only thing we can be sure of these days.. that the sun will rise and set!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful all William.ReplyDelete
Fitting start to the year, especially after the sunset photos.ReplyDelete
@Lois: I love the snow.
@Revrunner: who can resist snow?
@Mari: desert sunrises would feel quite different.
@Linda: thank you!
@Beth: coffee I do not go for!
@Jack: winter is about the only time I get to see the dawn on a regular basis.
@Carolann: thank you.
@Debs: it's a good tradition to hold onto. My dawn post for this new year comes tomorrow.
