New Year's Day, Smithville, Missouri, USA
Woke up early to greet an icy, icy New Year's Day with temperatures of -15 degrees Centigrade (5 degrees Fahrenheit). The sun was just tinting the horizon in the East and the Blue Moon of 31st December, 2009 was setting in the West. I couldn't resist going out to capture the new dawn even though I was barefoot and there is still deep snow around the house. I was torn as to which photo to post as my first - the setting moon or the rising sun but as the first day of the year and the promises of new beginnings I had to go with the rising sun.
