Skywatch Friday = New Year's Morning Sunrise
January 1, 2010
Haymarket, Virginia
It was a pretty sunrise in the east from my breakfast room doorway looking towards Dickie's house where we celebrated New Years Eve the night before with a small group of friends. It was the type of New Years Party that I like. Start early at 7:00 P.M. with drinks and appetizers and end early at 10:00 P.M. so guests can walk home, change into their jammies and watch on TV the ball drop in Times Square in New York City. Then kiss your sweetheart and hop into bed at 12:10 P.M. So this is what greeted me as I opened the door to let in all the good new vibrations for 2010. I noticed that each photo shows the clouds in a different location on the horizon and with different shades of grey in the cloud formations. See above and below the changes. All three photos were taken in lest than a minutes so that was some fast moving changes in the new year skies. (I wonder how symbolic that is for predicting changes in our world this year.)

I liked the black outline of my doorlight in these photos and Dickie's house outlined in black. The sunrise was just beginning. Sunrise in Northern Virginia comes around 7:00 A.M. these early January mornings. The days are beginning to gain a minute of sunlight each day but it is coming at the end of each day. So right now the sun sets around 5:05 P.M. and then is totally dark by 5:25 P.M.
Well, that's it for this second Friday of 2010 Skywatch Friday post. Now please go visit lots of other wonderful Skywatch Friday bloggers around the world by clicking here:

I so much enjoyed looking at your photos and reading your thoughtful post. Your idea of a reveillon makes perfectly good sense.I shall keep that in mind for, God willing, next New Year's eve! Happy, healthy, loving and prosperous 2010.
