December 15th, 2009. This is from behind the barn...the creek is under the snow where the little bushes go through the middle of the small meadow, and I'm standing on the bridge. This view won't change much for a couple more months unless we have a LOT more snow...or it gets WARMER! This was about 2:30 PM on an overcast day. Doesn't get too terribly bright without the clear sky and sunshine, huh?

As of today, Jan. 8th, we are gaining almost 4 minutes of daylight from just yesterday though! Whoohoo!!

That looks COLD.

How much daylight do you actually have these days?

How beautiful! I'll enjoy watching this change when spring comes.

If you can't be a good example, at least be a horrible warning.

Here is an interesting daylight calculator set up for Anchorage that shows about 6 hours sunrise to sunset and 8 hours dawn to dusk currently.

The azimuth chart might be useful for setting up some of your famous sunrise or sunset pics. Enjoy

Thanks for the link Hoopski.

I will have to look at it very carefully when I have a bit of time. Very interesting.

I checked it out for London, Ontario, the closest location for me.

Looks like about 9 hours sunrise to sunset and 10 hours dusk to dawn.

That is gorgeous...and cold looking! Will it stay that way for long?

I went to Dawson City (Yukon Territory) in my 20s... for a vacation (if you can believe that!) . 6 hr drive from White Horse...looked like that all the way. Eerie to me. I was living in Hawaii at the time..quite the contrast!

It can be odd at times....Thursday we were at 31 degrees (F) and today we are -5F ....March-April on average is when we see the change from Winter to Spring the most dramatically.

I like your link hoopski....and it's correct at 6 hours daylight. If the mountains weren't blocking the sunrise so much, it might be more noticeable!

Sorry Nancy! I guess I didn't notice...sending you a PM!

This is pretty sad...my picture looks VERY similar to the last one. This is February's that I never posted.
Just no snow on the branches and a bit lighter at the same time of day.
If I brave the blizzard that's going on right now...I will add that one!
