Sun Rises, Sun Sets (Hamilton, November 1st-10th, 2011)

Sunset, Gage Park. November 1st, 2011.
Taken at the Pumpkin Parade, the day after Hallowe'en. When I took this picture I was facing north and looking towards Main Street; the sky was very clear and as the sun set slowly, the glowing pumpkins looked more ghostly and festive.

Sunrise, downtown. November 2nd, 2011.
On the way to an early-morning swim, I took this picture on Jackson Street.

Sunset, Main Street East. November 2nd, 2011.
Walking to the supermarket, I stopped to take a picture of the stunning sky. I love this rare intensity of colour, the way even the deep blue is overlaid by the orange glow of the sun.

Sunrise, back porch. November 10th, 2011.
I love the view of the sky from the back deck at my place. I am usually awake early in the morning and especially in winter, I get to see some beautiful sunrises (the window faces directly east). This one looks like a fire being smothered by its own smoke.
