Degrees of light


In Arabic there are many degrees of light when it comes to sunrise and sunset, more than in English or French.

Sunrise and Dawn has:

الدجى ، السحر,الصبح ,الفحر. الضهر

For sunset: الغرؤب الشفق ، الغسق

I find this brilliant because as a photographer there is indeed a difference between when the light comes or goes, the sun has is on the horizon or past it.

Here is an example of sunrise in Rabat earlier this year
