December 2, 2018: Sunrise above the snow line

"Swift as a spirit hastening to his task 

Of glory & of good, the Sun sprang forth 

Rejoicing in his splendour, & the mask 

Of darkness fell from the awakened Earth. 

The smokeless altars of the mountain snows 

Flamed above crimson clouds . . .”

––Percy Shelley: The Triumph of Life
