Photography ~ Dawn–Downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina, 10/18

The best skies so far in this series

The point of sunrise nears Fayetteville’s most know landmark–the Market House as it journey to its southern-most point on December 21st–Winter Soltice.

From the place I am taking pictures, the sun will rise behind the Market House, Thursday, November 15, 2018, and again on its journey to its north-most point–Summer Soltice, Friday, January 26, 2019. Most of those taking pictures will see this magical sunrise on its southern pass 4 days earlier, November 11th–Veterans Day and 4 days later in January.

The last four years, I have photographed Market House Sunrises on at least one of of the sun’s annual passes and from different perspectives.

I visited the newly replaced bridge in Cross Creek Park. I can see the creek came out of its banks there as well but with less impact, or so it seems…
