This time of year is the best time of year for watching sunrises in my opinion, for a number of reasons. I think the most important reason is probably that the sun is rising about the same time that I am waking up and getting ready for the day, so I am most likely to see it. However, I think there are a couple other factors as well. While the winter tends to be very grey, and the summer quite sunny, this time of year, the sky is often partly cloudy, which is my favorite kind of sunrise, where the clouds turn all pink like cotton candy. We moved recently from a 3rd (4th by American standards) story apartment into a house, and I was worried that the view would not be as good for sun rises. The view from our bedroom window however is still quite nice.
