For reasons I’m not going to articulate here, I was up and out of bed at 6AM this morning. As we creep closer to the beginning of daylight savings time (which neither saves daylight, nor is “time” in any sense of the word since time is actually a dimension through which the cosmos is moving not an objective quantifiable commodity), we still have some days left where the sun is well and properly risen by 7, but that will soon change. So, I decided to take the opportunity to grab up the camera and snap a couple of frames of both these early morning colors as well as the amazingly clear crescent moon which was still hanging above the trees.
Unfortunately, early morning hands are not the most steady, and early morning eyes are not the most clear, so I ended up with a slightly blurred shot which I did not take note of to re-shoot. However, here is what dawn looked like in Southwest Houston at 6AM on March 7, 2013.
