I have lived almost 35 years on the ground floor (basement) of a building nestled in the middle of a block with trees out front. My new place is high up on the 5th floor of a building that is on a corner on top of a hill (and there is no building right across the street). My windows face south so I have the advantage to see both the sunrise and sunset from my little terrace. I just LOVE the natural light that my apartment gets or maybe I crave that vitamin D - who knows! With the great weather this weekend I was able to spend some time outside just watching the day go by. The above sunrise photo was taken one morning before I left for work. I just had to hang out 5 extra minutes to enjoy it. The one right below is what I like to call God's Lights (the reckoning is coming be prepared).
And this photo is yet another sunset – don't you just wish you could hear the hiss as the sun touches New Jersey.
