Final Monthly Posting

One year ago I started out taking a picture looking out the same window looking east from my house. I focused on a tower in the distance and tried to figure ways of showing how the scenery changed and the position of the sun in the early hours of the day. I had not planned on the time change and felt bad that I went from 7 to 8 and back to 7 to try to get the shot. In retrospect I should not have let this bother me and just stuck with the local weather report telling be what sunrise was suppose to be. I use suppose because I couldn't say they were correct if I couldn't see the sun on a cloudy day.

So, with that said I will present the first morning shot taken on Nov. 1, 2010. As you will see in the last picture I was a little early but the sun is coming up behind the trees on the right hand side of the picture. It looks as if it was going to be a great day.

This picture is the April 1 shot. As you can see it is north (left) of the tower out in the distance. This is almost a due east view. It is also a little after sunrise with the sun so high up. This is 6 mos. into the study. Here too you can see the sun is up in the left corner. The big problem I had with this was that we had so many days of clouds this year. I believe we had already had almost a years worth of rain at this point. A couple of months before this my sump pump was running 24/7 plus a battery backup was running to keep up plus a third pump that I had to run a hose from to a drain.

Moving forward, finding a sunny morning we find last months photo. Look at where the sun is. Almost dead-on the tower. I believe, I would have to look it up to be specific, that the time was before seven o'clock. And now to end this endeavor.

The first picture is sunrise for me, when it just breaks the tree line. The second shot is just to show what 5 minutes in time can do to your lighting, color and that time does move. It is time to scroll back to the top and look at the first picture. Boy was I lucky to get clear days on the same days of the month of two different years.

Enlarge the first and last picture. Doctoring for clarity, watermarking and getting rid of the electric boxes was done.
