Not a Sunrise, Not a Sunset


Sunrise can come on sometimes like a brutal onslaught, so harsh is its glare, impossible to ignore. Sunsets, more peaceful, are often vivid and phantasmagoric, stopping us in our tracks. But just as journalists all rush to one focal spot, ignoring everything else happening at the same time, we may notice only the light and color in the morning east and evening west, forgetting to look at the subtler glory in other directions. This was the sky to the south in Dos Cabezas on January 13, 2021, at sunset.
