Title of this post refers to a sunset on a day in early January, as well as the fact that, because it is January in the northern hemisphere, sunsets come early.
Taken on my way to the supermarket–much like with the Caw It Form The Rooftops post, an opportunity for a nice shot came from doing the most mundane activity. Which is the only way these days, really, when we can’t go anywhere.
The morning of Friday 13th January at the tram stop. Some snow here.
I got so pessimistic about everything that I was shocked about trams actually running with no delays. Really.
UK doesn’t get that much snow so it takes little to cause disruptions.
Just yesterday I saw a page I follow on Facebook dedicated to old pictures of Bratislava, my home town, posting about the record snowfall of 1987–thirty years ago. I believe most of Europe suffered this extreme cold spell. I was only six then but remember bits of it. There were heaps of snow as tall as me and my mum had to walk to her workplace because the public transport wasn’t running. The great “snow calamity”, as we called it in former Czechoslovakia, was still talked about many years afterwards. People laugh when they reminisce about those days, but I’m sure it wasn’t funny then!
Some pictures from that time (just ignore the text).
A year ago I mentioned in this post that I got into a habit of taking a photo of a sunrise on the first working day of the year. I didn’t do it this year, a combination of forgetting to take my camera in the morning (this wasn’t an issue with compact, which I could carry in my everyday bag) and not good conditions for photography. Here are photos taken on the evening of 2nd January instead:
I love how clear the skies are in cold weather.
I just imagine myself aboard that plane off to somewhere warm–Copacabana beach in Rio, perhaps.
So it’s 2017 at last and I got myself my own domain. I have also been amusing myself by working on an ultimate all-genre big fat playlist of the 90s. And I’m not joking about the all-genre part. This is where Nirvana meets Barbie Girl and metal shakes hands with eurodance. I will post a link once it’s ready.
It has become a habit of mine to take a photo of sunrise on the first working day of the year on my way to work.
I’m not a morning person and therefore never take any pictures of sunrise, except this time of year when it days are so short.
The weather has been really awful lately, constant rain and more rain, conditions weren’t exactly the best for taking pictures. So this year’s is dated the third working day of the year, instead of first.
