As I drove down the Sask Landing Hill,
I could hardly contain my excitement
as the Morning Sunrise was washing over the Hills!

Just outside of the small Prairie Town of Elrose
the sun was just coming up...
on a COLD January morning with temperatures of
around -30ºC (-22ºF)
(Photos taken 2003 January 21 around 9:15 AM)

As I looked to the East I saw the sun rising....


 

... and as I looked to the West I saw the moon still in the sky
facing off with the sun in its final stance ...
