Sunrise, Moon and Venus b4 Y-day

The mistYmuse four months new-age paganism winter festival has now crossed the January 21st midway Y-day, leaving the MIST (Most Ideal Sunrise Times) and entered the MUSE (Midwinter Until Spring Equinox) months. I’m sorry if you missed leaving MIST, and there was quite a party over on this site’s fmpoetry sister site, starting with the new YSL advert on January 13th:

Sunrise POP (PinkyOrangePurple)

I featured some sunset photos on this site near the start of the mistYmuse, and here’s some sunrise ones, from early January, with Venus near the moon:

Space Travellers

As a video I featured on fmpoetry during the Y-day pre-party showed, we are all travellers through space, on our planet, and in our solar system:

Moreover, our brains are like miniature galaxies, as an article and simulation of a black hole forming on MSN made me think that’s how my mind is working while thinking of new concepts and connections while gYgPOPing.

My Y-day blogging was like a mini-break reminder of my epic classic XaW Files: Beyond Humanity 202 episodes; which is like my real life travel history, of big journeys followed by shorter holidays!

 

 

Midwinter Most Ideal Sunrise Times Month

I was thinking of updating the mistYmuse today, as it’s over two weeks in now (started November 21st, a month before midwinter) and there are only two weeks until the Winter Solstice, when it will be midwinter in the northern hemisphere. The MIST of mistYmuse stands for Most Ideal Sunrise Time, and now that we are only a fortnight away from December 21st we are in the best four weeks for seeing the sunrise as late as possible, and it is now in the 8-9am hour in Blighty.

Advent Calendarists joined the December party on the 1st of course, and have to wait another four days for their biggest day on the 25th.

I’ve been seeing in the news that lots of people have thankfully been up popping POP (PinkyOrangePurple) pictures, such as this classic one featured on the BBC:

Inkberrow in Worcestershire

I just wrote a blog post on this site’s sister site, fmpoetry, with an update about the POPolution.

Sun Dog-Wolf Wishes, Sun Pillar Reality, Same Photographic Evidence of Exquisite Serenity

As seen in the photos on yesterday’s blog, the sun had set by the time I returned to the road, and the sky had POPed (PinkyOrangePurpled):

My Last Photo

The battery had nearly run out on my phone, and I took this photo with 1% left. I wondered at the time if it was a sky effect known as a sun dog, but checking up yesterday that’s more when it looks as if there is a ‘sun’ either side of the sun.

It would have been apt for my greenYgrey concept, as from the start it was supposed to be a sun wolf, rather than the more stereotypical moon wolf; its greenness was supposed to have been sun-dyed, and later its Y ascended, partly symbolising the yellow of the sun, and its enlightenment.

The fact that I saw brilliant sky scenes during the sunny daylight, and didn’t see the Northern Lights in the moony night (there was a cool crescent moon near the same seaside horizon as the sun in these photos) does fit in with the greenYgrey sun wolf theme.

This photo seems more like a sun pillar, where the sun’s light extends vertically, making it look as if it is really long, or there are more than one. That isn’t the sun in the photo, as it’s already below the horizon:

I don’t think I’ve ever taken a better POP photo, although it looks even better on my phone gallery; inspiring me to this moment name such PinkyOrangePurple photos POPhotos, pronounced POP-hotos!

I apologise for loving my own photos so much. It’s not my photography I love though, it’s the beautiful scene of immaculate nature; just like the great artists of the Romantic era!

Iceland Mountain Fjord Sunset Photos

It was around or below zero all the time the week I was in Iceland, from what I saw of the temperatures, and it was supposed to be about -5c the day I spent on the Borgarfjordur beach. While I’d taken many photos during the day, the snaps I took after sunset turned the sky, land and water PinkyOrangePurple (POP) looked totally sublime in my phone gallery. They don’t seem to look as good transferred to the computer, looking lighter, but I think they’re still very nice.

After last post contained a silhouette reflection on Mount Hafnarfjall, here’s the scene below, as the mountain joins the fjord:
