Low cloud on the horizon spoilt the central sunrise, but the sun did pop through the POP clouds a little afterwards. There’s always tomorrow… and the weather forecast’s good!
As millions around the world celebrate today being the last latest day of the Most Ideal Sunrise Time of mistYmuse 20/21; the 5th of 5 days at 8.24 in Leeds; and something called New Year’s Eve; here’s yesterday’s news:
It was a classic crisp sunrise this morning, whereas yesterday all the action was in the pre-sunrise: kind of like “a support band blowing the headliners off the stage’ in the music world.
To use another analogy, from the sporting world, even the pre-sunrise can be called a ‘game of two halves’.
The first half was a big cloud sky reminiscent of the ‘Wizard of Oz’:
Then the colours turned deeper, to the classic POP (PinkyOrangePurple):
Yesterday’s sunrise was another great one. The first four photos have a good example of how POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sky colours work, with pinky orange light and clouds turned purple. Some crows joined in from the fourth to seventh photos starting on the second row below. The clouds went a bit double snake from 12-14; angelic from 17-21, and then the last four had a ‘lighthouse beams’ effect from the sun, but not as much as in the last post.
Yesterday’s sunrise lived up to expectations:
There was also a bonus beforehand, as Venus (I think, was due in sky at that time; shame, could claim UFO otherwise!) shone brightly before the sun rose in the same direction:
Today’s forecast wasn’t good, but there was still a sun gap on the horizon, like in my silver lining cloud adaptation with the sky shining pinky orange under mostly cloud.
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.
When I saw the BBC covering this week’s great sunsets I hoped they’d caught up with the POPolution, and were seeing twilight colours without the blinkers of old hat proverbs.
However, they kept on calling the sunsets ‘red’, when they were nothing of the sort! This photo is probably the closest to red of the featured ones, but is really a deep combination POP…
… some are bright pink…
… or even more yellow!…
I’m just glad to see these great photos really, but if you wish, POPolutionaries, please complain to the BBC in a light-hearted way, asking them to see things as they are, rather than through dogmatic cultural brainwashing!
The BBC have also ignored XaW Files: Beyond Humanity, where the new POP art developed out of the travel quest for the greenYgrey world’s Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol:
