Share Your New Year’s Day Pre-Dawn and Sunrise Photographs

On January 1, 2014, photographs of the pre-dawn and sunrise from around the world will be displayed here, on the Siddha Yoga path website, from the first pre-dawn and sunrise of the day in New Zealand, across the globe, to the pre-dawn and sunrise in Hawaii.

You are invited to take photographs of the pre-dawn and sunrise from wherever you are in the world on January 1, and send your photographs to the Siddha Yoga path website—and you may invite your family and friends to submit photographs as well.

Information about Taking Your Pre-Dawn and Sunrise Photographs

  • If possible, include your surroundings in your photos, such as trees, mountains, buildings. This will give the viewer a sense of where you are.
  • When taking the photos, make sure the camera is as still as possible.
    • The best option is to use a tripod.
    • You can also place the camera on a flat surface.
