Sometimes it’s hard to tell which it is, dawn or dusk. Getting brighter for a sunny day, or darker for a long night?
How to tell the difference? Obviously, it all depends on the direction you’re facing.
In this case, I was facing east. It was a dawn that was coming up all soft pinks and blues, stenciling the Alps beyond like a cut-out horizon.

Yesterday I posted images of atmospheric life at our altitude, all fog and frost.
Today, this is the view from several hundred meters above our heads, taken from a ski station web cam that’s twenty minutes from our place. The view is out over Lake Geneva, with the Alps in the distance. All of the Pays-de-Gex and Geneva, including our village, is beneath that white sea.
It’s comforting to know the sun is right there, if we feel the need to go visit.
