Hatsu-Hinode (The Sunrise of New Year’s Day)

Hatsu-Hinode in Japan

‘Hatsu-Hinode’ – The Sunrise of New Year’s Day

Day 4 on “Photo101” – ‘Bliss & Caption’
There are several occasions/situations that make for me, a bliss moment. It can be a gathering with my family, finishing some satisfying creations, having a nice afternoon tea in a beautiful garden or seeing a happy Labrador puppy jumping around me.
I selected this photo for my ‘Bliss’ picture. It is the Sunrise of New Year’s Day in some year. After a long wait in a sharp cold atmosphere, the moment finally arrives. The sky starts breaking its monochrome darkness from the horizon and then turning into a myriad of colours. Finally the bright orange beam spread outs.
That is our Sun. In Japan we make a wish at the First Sunrise of the New Year. You just feel something good will happen in the New Year. Great anticipation warms up your mind which is filled with big hope.
