In our area, on January 22, twilight begins at 7:11:57 am and sunrise is at 7:41:34 am. Sunrise is now about 5 minutes earlier than it was on December 21 – the shortest day of the year.
I was at Humber Bay well ahead of our 8 am walk and took these photos:
There are a great many Oriental Bittersweet vines at Humber Bay.
The supply of orange berries enables several mockingbirds to winter here. I photographed one this morning.
Sumac fruit is another abundant food source.
This morning’s group:
Hey Miles, today I grabbed a few photos of you with your camera and the skyline as a backdrop. They’re just from my camera phone so they’re not extremely hi-resolution, but I thought I’d share!
Let us walk in the white snow
In a soundless space;
With footsteps quiet and slow,
At a tranquil pace,
Under veils of white lace. – Elinor Wylie (1885–1928)
