Sunrise, also referred to as dawn or daybreak, are in fact different times of the day. According to Wikipedia sunrise is the instant at which the upper edge of the sun appears above the horizon in the east, and dawn is the time when the sky begins to lighten, but before the sun actually appears, and daybreak can apply to either sunrise or dawn.
Sunset colours are usually more brilliant than sunrise colours, however, this showcase features some very vivid sunrise colours, along with the paler colours usually associated with colder weather.
