Equinox Sun Rising.
This unique photograph of the Equinox Sun Rising at 6.08 am on 23 September 2023 was taken from the Murambi Municipal Number 2 High Level Water Tank in Mutare, Zimbabwe. It is special because it shows the same sunrise in the viewfinder of another camera recording the same scene at the same time and includes the central caulked divide between two halves of the lid of the water tank which engineers had constructed to run exactly east-west leaving no doubt that this image was captured on the Equinox!
