Photographer's Note

This photograph was not intended to be posted. But I just decided (once again) to follow an impulse two minutes ago, and just go ahead with it.

First of all you have certainly noticed that this is a sunrise, not a sunset. For all of those who live by the sea, it will be easy to tell the difference, one of the clues being that seagulls usually freak out at dawn rather than at sunset.

Anyway, whether if it was taken early in the morning or late in the afternoon, this kind of photograph is far from being original. And the truth is that TE, as well as anyother photography website, is filled with this type of images, most of them far better compositions than my own.

So.. WHY posting it?? It has just become an evidence for me.

One of the geographic particularities of Geneva, where I live, is that it is a city stucked between two mountains : the Mount Salève to the SouthEast, and the french Jura range of mountains to the NorthWest. This means that there is not a flat horizon line visible from the city center, and therefore we can’t EVER see a real sunrise or a real sunset. We’re left to our imagination and dreams all year long.

I just realized this photograph represents the first sunrise I have seen in months. That’s a reason enough to like it and to share it.

Thanks for your patience to my blablablabla!
