A slightly woozy sunrise panorama.

By Meade. I am in this picture, by the way. Near that even harder to see red-hatted man. Click the image and click again to enlarge.A third click gets you even closer, and the look of the ripples in the water gives you some idea of how the Apple software stitches the photos together to make the panorama. It's some kind of complicated geometry. Can anyone explain it? [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Sunrise — 5:15 and 5:26.

Notice how the rippling of the lake revs up when the sun appears. The actual sunrise time was 5:23. The sun was first visible to me over the shoreline at 5:25. I'd been waiting and waiting, and I got the idea that if I took a long slow breath, the sun might appear before I got to the end of it. And it did!Open thread in the comments.And here's the Amazon portal. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

The storm was about to hit.

Here's how the radar map looked when we got back to the car: About 12 minutes before that, this was the view of the western sky: This was the north: This was the east: [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

At the Sunrise Café...

... you can write about whatever topics you like.That photo was taken at 5:05, on a day when the actual sunrise time was 5:17, the earliest sunrise of the year. We've been parked on 5:17 for 10 days now, and tomorrow we finally begin moving toward a later sunrise. The sun will rise (here in Madison) at 5:18, but the day length will still be the longest of the year — 15 hours and 22 minutes. There are 5 days that long, and today was the second of those days. The latest sunset — 8:41 — is not un...

5:22 a.m.

That's today, the 9th of the 10 days with the earliest sunrise time, 5:17.I was there at 5:17, but the sun had not yet broken over the shoreline. I don't have a view of the horizon. The first direct bit of sun became visible at 5:20: You see why I picked 5:22 as the best. It wasn't because I was 5 minutes "late." I wasn't late! Were you?

I didn't think it would work...

... but you actually can point your iPhone camera directly at the sun.To the eye, the sun looked perfectly orange and the sky was blue. The camera interpreted the sun as white, and that required the sky to be perfectly orange. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Wild indigo.

In the sunrise light — at 5:25 — the white flowers look yellow. Why are white flowers called "indigo"? The scientific name is Baptisia lactea — and "Baptisia" is based on the Greek word for "dye." I'm a little confused about whether the wild indigo with white flowers was used to make dye. I think the answer is yes, because the dye is made from the leaves. Here are some instructions, and, by the way, a major ingredient is urine. This was my best sunrise picture. Today was a Type #3 sunrise — co...
