The sunrise (really: our first view of the sun as our planet spins) has now reached the last landmark on the Leeds panorama; three university buildings in the north of the city), a little more north than March 6th (taken last year: cranes to the north now gone. In this year’s photos, the tree has now grown to block that gap where sun rising!):
I have proposed POP theory; think I’ve proved sunrise can be pinky, but it is for others to study it rigorously.
There was another clear sunrise today, and I was awake, but decided not to photograph it as I took some yesterday. While some may consider me an extremist or fanatic for what I have recorded, for true scientific sunrise/twilight research, every one would have to be recorded for hours, from first light to bright sky.
Maybe there is someone doing that: to distinguish the colours, and how cloud forms in different parts of the sky, and how they interact? Or maybe there will be…
Here’s three photos from the previous time I took some previous to yesterday’s, on January 26th, when pre-dawn pulsating pinky penetrated a mostly cloudy morning, with a band of yellowy orange in the middle of it, like POP with purple on the end; the grey sky looks purplish in the cropped last photo.
They also show how an edit can change the scene. I think they have a different colour to yesterday’s set.
Regarding the post title, I was listening to Solstafir while writing the post, with the name apparently meaning crepuscular rays.
Cloudy mornings the last couple of days so these photos are unpublished ones from Sunday, 27th. Bit of sleety snow this morning, but sunny now; and nice day forecast for tomorrow; and morning after for sunrise hopefully. These are just a few original photos, with crops making up the rest. First 3 are the pre-sunrise. Second three are at the gap that looks like there’s a dog (or more like a skunk in this one?) face there to me, and created a kind of halo rainbow effect this time, which I looked up, and saw it was called a sun dog; so a dog face in the forest, and sunbow ‘dog’ above! Bottom three were of the sun before, over and after the next gap, timed at 8.52, 8.54 and 8.55. Sunrise in Leeds is still at its latest time of 8.24; and therefore still the m-ost i-deal s-unrise t-ime of mistYmuse fame; until January 1st.
My last three e-books are also free to read on Smashwords and Amazon until January 1st. Thanks to those who’ve already downloaded them.
There’s not much sun forecast this week; real old-fashioned greenygrey weather, before the greenYgrey rebranding; so I thought I’d separate yesterday’s sunrise into pre and post sunrise. Above are the pre, with lots of new POP (PinkyOrangePurple) art colours. The post-sunrise photos posting soon…
Here’s four photos from a historic Stanningley, Leeds sunset, winter 2006 I think, a decade before the new POP (PinkyOrangePurple) age inspired by those twilight time colours correlating with the pop art travel quest theme of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity.
They remind me of some UFO film and photos, especially the triangular one with a light underneath, rumoured to be a new USAF stealth craft called the TR3B, featuring anti-gravity plasma.
It was only after seeing the twelve sunrise photos after taking them and posting them here that I thought they looked like Andy Warhol’s original pop art, such as the soup cans screen print.
And after posting the whole blog post with Blondie’s Picture This I remembered there were also Debbie Harry screenprints done by Warhol
I prefer this photo I just found while searching them:
All the above happened unconsciously/accidentally, like PinkyOrangePurple emerging out of the XaW Files: Beyond Humanity pop art travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol: Andy Wolfhol.
I didn’t think I’d see the sun yesterday, after a cloudy rain weather forecast, and it was only because the sunrise has now moved farther south, and I could see some pink clouds that I bothered turning the camera on!
That’s after I took a few on Friday; mistYmuse eve; when the forecast was for high pressure, and there’d been a sunny Thursday, but it was mostly cloudy:
On Friday there was a cloud gap on the horizon, showing the sunrise true position over the south of the city (much farther south than last month’s photos), while yesterday there was cloud on the horizon, so the photos were later, and over a more scenic treescape.
Now, the sunrise is returning to where I first noticed the PinkyOrangePurple colours of twilight times, and wrote of it as part of greenYgrey’s epic third and last ramble:
