I love to watch sunrise and sunset everyday. I have a clear view of the eastern and western horizon where I can watch the transformation of night to day, and day to night.
These hours are the best for wilderness photography, as the light casts long shadows and it is filtered through the wide atmosphere, and illuminates the world around us with light rich in distinctive mystery, even mystical and magical as it passes through majestic multi-layered clould formations of various elevations.
The ionosphere above us goes through huge changes between night and day. Our sun ionizes, via UVC & UVB light the upper atmosphere and creates layers of very dense ionization. During the daytime there layers are capable of reflecting our radio waves back to earth, and is used in this way as a sort of mirror, to facilitate global radio communications. The schumann frequencies are tuned and directed by these spherical layers circling the earth, which rise and lower in response to our day and night cycle.
Our brain waves frequencies and the schumann frequencies are in the same bands, and can “play” together, and even “sing” together following common “tunes” and frequencies. Sunrise and sunset are major events that shift “songs” between waking and sleeping hours. When we are synchronized with daylight-awake and night time-asleep our rapport with these songs of the ionosphere is greatest: “Early to bed and early to rise makes a person rich, happy and wise” Ben Franklin.
