Are you a sunrise fan or a sunset fan?
I prefer sunrises. They are full of hope and excitement for the day ahead. The air is cooler and crisper, and full of the woodsey scent from the night before. There is the promise that whatever happened yesterday is done and over with; it is a new day and a fresh start.
Here is a picture of my favorite sunrise so far. It was taken in early spring last year in upstate New York. The warmer air is melting the snow, creating a mist along the ground and giving this sunrise a glow. Just as a sunrise sheds light on a dark night, the spring season tries to shake off the wintry blanket still covering our area.
