The Visual Evidence......
I have shared many photos of my narrow view of the sunrise. No one has questioned the view. I have written a couple of times that when I stand as far as I can on the patio that I can only get the neighbor's garage with the sun behind it. By the time the sun raises above that area there is no color in the sunrise. Today, it was like standing in a cloud with the fog surrounding everything. To my surprise the sun is now in view. The earth is tilting back and the sun is now further to the right in my view. I normally shoot this scene with the pine tree covering up the flag on the pole. Today I share it and it is a less natural looking photo. When I cover up the flagpole I can pretend that I have timber in the foreground and I might be in Minnesota or Colorado. No, it is just Iowa.
Going back in the files I found that not only does the garage block the sun but the row of trees are in the way. The green light at the bottom of the shot is the garage light.
