Good Morton!

May 16th through May 22nd

366 Sunrises

Beginning on 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 crosses the horizon. If successful, the project photography will illustrate the apparent movement of the sun from its southernmost position at the winter solstice to its northernmost on June 21, the summer solstice, and back again.

I am posting weekly updates and will follow with monthly and quarterly compilations until we reach there halfway mark, and then not again until we are back at the winter solstice of 2020.

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:

The compass direction of the sunrise in Lakeland runs from 116 degrees (ESE) at the winter solstice to 63 degrees (ENE) at the summer solstice, a range of 53 degrees. This map tracks the changes, by degrees.

While the virus and the consequences conspired to make it a May to forget, the cosmos and nature gave us something to remember. 31 Sunrises.
