It’s morning again!  If you can read photo, this is a long one, will take you a while.

Truth be told, I took this photo on December 28, but close enough.  Seeing the magic of dawn light is the reason I often get up in the brutal darkness.

If you want to see something extraordinary, skip down to the ***.

Happy, healthy, prosperous, exciting, adventurous, loving 2021 .

Photo by WVD, who’s done lots of previous “dawn” posts.

If you don’t read photo and need some language, here’s Willa Cather:  “[Dawn] is always such a forgiving time. When that first cold, bright streak comes over the water, it’s as if all our sins were pardoned; as if the sky leaned over the earth and kissed it and gave it absolution.”   

If you need that translated into  . . . say . . . Maori, it’s here:  “Ko te [Dawn] he wa tino murua. Ka tae mai taua makariri tuatahi, maramara mai ra ki runga i te wai, peera ka murua o tatou hara katoa; me te mea ka okioki te rangi ki te whenua ka kihi i a ia ka tino mate.”

If you need to know how it’s done, here‘s an 8-minute behind the scenes.  Thanks to Michele McMorrow for sharing this, and teaching me a new word that has nothing to do with drones:  hogmanay.

I’d forgotten about the Lady Gaga show.  Here’s more

 

Sorry for the hiatus in posting.  I was out at sunrise New Years Day . . . but more on that in a moment.

Part of my silence was attributable to verizon.  The rest . . . was because I decided to ACT on new year’s resolutions, not just make them.

The first photos after sunrise January 1 . . . Buchanan 1, who must have been towing a loaded dredge spoils scow out as the new years whistles were blowing and fireworks blasting.  Bravo, Buchanan 1.

Jay Michael headed out with a scow load of dredge spoils, evidence that dredgers worked their way from 2014 to 2015.
