On December 21st, 2019, I began photographing the eastern shore of Lake Morton, from a consistent vantage point* on the western shore, at about 15 minutes after the sun crossed the horizon, to illustrate its apparent movement from the southernmost position at the winter solstice to its northernmost on June 21, the summer solstice, and back again.
For a calendar of all the stills since the 21st of December, please select a month from the main menu under "Good Morton!" or here, or from the carousel.

* The project goal of presenting a leap year of 366 sunrises from a single photo point on Lake Morton was thwarted in part due to the pleasure of personal trips to a wedding in Puerto Rico and a father-and-son visit to northern Norway (sounds redundant, doesn't it?). It was also thwarted by the pall of the pandemic which forced the photo point off the lakeshore and onto Lake Morton Drive for about a month in the spring. Watch the whole year go by in two minutes and two seconds. ( 02:02 )
The Autumnal equinox occurred at 9:30 AM EDT, September 22, 2020, for the entire world.
This particular version is delivered to the Lake Morton neighborhood.
