It is said, “That you do not know what you have until its gone.” In other words, take nothing for granted.
I was very aware that I could not see the sunrise in Ocotito, mostly because I did not know where to go to see it. Lil’s parent’s house was on the wrong side of the hill, the house was dark until well after sunrise, and the yard was too obscured by trees to see much of anything anyway.
Even the one sunset I managed to catch was a bit mild mannered.
So imagine my joy and wonder as the sky welcomed me back to Taxco with riotous color this morning!
There was even color over the Zocolo!
Oh sunrise, how I have missed thee!
Makes me realize just what a wonderful vantage point I have to view this glorious show each morning.
I will never take this view for granted.
Why are Taxco’s sunrises so orange? Our mornings here are very unimpressive?
Actual color is a little more pinkish coral to red but camera turns everything more orange. Still spectacular though. I am thinking the color may be related to the same reason that the harvest moon is orange — dust in the atmosphere — the dirt here is very reddish.
It has also been suggested that the intense color of the sunrises here may be due to the angle of the sun eitherbeing closer to the equator or the mountain height. Either way, the sunrises sure are beautiful.
I wonder if the residual smoke from burning in Nicaragua causes it. Beautiful it is! On Feb 19, 2015 8:42 PM, “Cynthia Streeter” wrote:
