The British sun can be a bit of a diva star, so I didn’t know if it’d turn up for the mistYmuse (most ideal sunrise times – midwinter until spring equinox) 20/21 opening ceremony today, starting four months of sky fun (probably the longest festival in the world!?)… but it did!
I was reminded of this sunshine on Earth video recently, so thought it was a fitting opening show, after male acts opened and closed last year’s mYm 19/20!
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.
