Instructions: this one is dead simple. Take a photo of the sky at 9am.

This photo challenge relies on the power of simplicity. We are asking you to take a very simple photo of the sky, at 9 in the morning. Each photo, in and of itself, may not be that exciting, but by creating a collection, the whole becomes more interesting than the sum of the parts. Viewed next to each other, the images reveal the differences, variety and subtlety of the sky. Tag your image with '9amsky', but also tag it with your location and the weather, like this: "9amsky:location=vancouver" and "9amsky:weather=rainy" .

This was inspired by a project by Michael Surtees entitled “ 36 days of new York sky”. You can view a post about the project here. The artist took a photo of the sky from his home in New York at the same time every morning for 36 days. Our challenge will be different in that every person is shooting from a different location, so it will be more of a composite of the sky from around the world.

Sunrise is at 9AM in Germany?

My camera does not change from daylight saving time to normal time. The sunrise is at 8, but the DST timestamp says 9.
I'm too lazy to adjust all the watches, so I just wait half a year, then they show the right time again.

Thanks Kwiditi!
it's hard for people to understand that this challenge is only significant when everyone does it. I really appreciate your participation! We will be making a mono-chromatic series once we have a bunch of submissions.

I liked the idea of this challenge, but I think the 9am time posed a problem for those of us in jobs who would have just started work at that point. I notice the original artist who inspired this took his pics between 7 and 9 am, adjusting for the changing time of year.


And what about a new challenge? I miss the creative inspiration from Glocal!
