So Grateful for the Morning Light
I fell into the dark abyss again (worried about R) but I can smile when I remember the gorgeous morning light that Shyla and I enjoyed at sunrise this morning.
It was 8°F when we headed out this morning. That is the coldest yet this year but the air was still. The lack of wind made it feel pretty warm. And, I enjoyed that no one else was out in the cold!
This light is what makes this time of year happier for me. It's actually a rough season for me, with lots of memories of bad things that have happened in the depth of winter plus the glaring loss of my ability to ski due to my spine. However, I have learned to revel in the low angle sunlight - it's a photographer's delight!
As a fun aside, sunset has already reached its earliest time for the winter (yes, that happens before the winter solstice). Sunset will now occur a few seconds later every day until the summer solstice! That's worth smiling about!
