Sunrise Between Storms

The mistYmuse obviously hadn’t cleared out of my mind when I posted yesterday, as metal isn’t a shenel word, as eta isn’t a word; they (it and death) do both contain the letters E-A-T.

Ironically, I realised while awake, but not long after a nap, in late afternoon. I didn’t have the corrective information when I awoke, but I don’t know if the nap primed it, like disk cleaning/defragging a computer!?

Calm Before (and after) the Storm

There was another nice sunrise this morning, which is now at 08.17 in Leeds, seven minutes earlier than its latest time of 08.24; still quite convenient for most people’s commute though. Next week, the 21st, will of course be the very exciting midpoint of mistYmuse; about a month after midwinter in the northern hemisphere.

You can see there is a big difference in colours to the blue sky one four days ago, supporting what I’ve seen a lot of people who spend a lot of time in the countryside say, or on the same travel route: that there is something different to see every day in the same place, as the light/weather is always changing.

Leeds Sunrise Lives Up to mistYmuse Hype

Scheduled to arrive in Leeds by 9am I thought I may see some ‘sunrise’, with the sun now visible from the city after 8am, and the sky lightening and colouring beforehand: this gives mistYmuse its Most Ideal Sunrise Times first-half-of-word acronym (#mYm2019).

As I approached the city on the canal towpath I was thrilled to see there was POP (PinkyOrangePurple) on the horizon; like the common ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ idiom. Here’s a couple of photos, with a third of it cropped for a close-up.

Fortnight of mistYmuse Twilight Times Spectacular

As twilight times contract:
Sunrise (now 08.05 in Leeds, with sunset only 7/8 hours later at 15.47) photos from this morning, 2 weeks into mistYmuse 2019/20 (
#mYm2019 – November 21st was a Thursday).

One of a plane seeming to fly over a (pagan) crescent moon at late afternoon sunset through a frosty window earlier in the week.

The clear sky setting sun inspired me to extend my run/exercises yesterday afternoon, especially as clouds were building around it, and with low pressure forecast for the next few days.

I stayed out until the last light disappeared from between tree branches, making me think that is what tinsel on Christmas trees might represent?.. although Wikipedia says ice.
