The Sun Rises and Sets at the Cabin

My two favourite times of day at the cabin are the early mornings and the early evenings.

In the morning we wake up to the smell of coffee that was brewed for us like magic (but really because of the program function on the coffeemaker) and the quiet that only morning can deliver.  Before any TVs or radios are turned on, while most of the others are still sleeping, there is that quiet stillness – that sound of morning.  I love to sit by the window and watch the sunrise, with my coffee mug in hand.  Most mornings when cloud or fog aren’t lurking about, the sun rise creates a beautiful palate of colours.

In the early evening there is a sense of closure to the day…the sun sets and then the activity moves into the cabin. Dinner, a movie, a fire in the fireplace, and then crawling under the covers in the cozy beds.

The Sunrise:

It is a quick show and it is a somewhat rare sighting because it is very easy to over sleep in the cozy cabin.

If there is fog it steals the show by swallowing up the colour and providing an eerie backdrop. Still makes for a beautiful morning.

In the winter the colours are that much more vibrant because there is a crispness in the air and the snow provides a perfect white canvas on which the sun can paint its colours.

The Sunset:

The early evenings sneak up on our busy days.  Suddenly the light starts to change into a beautiful golden hue and you know that you have a finite amount of sunlight left to complete any activities that require light.  In the summer we are often at the local fishing hole where the fish tend to feed in the early hours of the evening.

Every sunset is different from the last one.  Like snowflakes, there are no two alike.  Some days the sunset projects it self on the clouds and create a dramatic fiery end to the day.

The clouds almost absorb the colours of the sunset.

Some days it is more of a traditional sunset as the sun slips down across the western horizon.

Most days there is a beautiful splash of colour that provides a backdrop to the silhouette of the trees.

We will set our coffeemaker…ready for another morning.
