Christmas Eve Sunrise

I got up really early on Saturday morning to go shopping. If there’s one thing I hate more than grocery shopping, it’s having to do it when the store is jam-packed full of people right before a holiday. Fortunately the SuperStore a few blocks from my house is open around the clock this time of year; I arrived at 6:30 in the morning, when the store clerks restocking the shelves out-numbered the relatively few shoppers. I picked up what I needed and left just as the sun was coming up.

I couldn’t resist taking a drive down Rushmore Road on my way home to see if I could find some wildlife hunting for food out in the fields. I didn’t see anything other than crows, but the sunrise was beautiful.

There were no halos or sun pillars visible; I took a few pictures of the fields and then left. I liked how the morning sun is reflected in these three silos:

As it was Christmas Eve day, I had no time for anything more than just a quick drive-by; it was just enough to provide me with a sense of peace and serenity and to renew my appreciation for the wonderful palette of colours found in a winter sunrise.
