One of the best things about our new place is the light. The old place had huge windows along a whole wall, which was great, but they faced north-northwest, so we never got much for direct sunlight. Right now, we're getting sunrise and sunset, thanks to having a corner apartment.
It's been quite a while since I got to see this many sunsets and sunrises in a row. I love it, and I don't mind the fact that the sun comes up so late in winter - because I get to see it happen.
We've also enjoyed the moon lately - the skyline here doesn't really tower over us, so there's more horizon (and less light pollution).
Here's this morning's progression: a hint of light behind the clouds...
...and a burst of color.
For that alone, I like our new place.
Update: Holy crap, it's not done yet.
It's like the Energizer Bunny of sunrises.
