SHIFTING POSITIONS

If I ran a poll on which part of the day people find most attractive, there's no doubt that the results would come back with a predictable answer: "but the sunset, of course."
That being said, I will not run such a poll, at least not before I attempt to persuade you that the crown jewel of the day is the Almighty Sunrise!

Sunrise seen from Mt. Aenos, Kefalonia
Sunrise viewed from Mt. Aenos, Kefalonia
Sunrise seen from Mt. Aenos, Kefalonia
Sunrise reflected on the sea of Lourdas Bay, Kefalonia

I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales.
The clouds were far beneath me; bathed in light,
They gathered mid-way round the wooded height,
And, in their fading glory, shone
Like hosts in battle overthrown.

 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
"Sunrise on the Hills" 
Note: this campaign of persuasion has just begun...
