I subbed 2019 Year of the Sunrise where I photographed every sunrise of the year from one of the harshest winter environments in the United States, and one of the states with the least amount of sunshine.

What this year really was is 2019: The Year of Hugo.
I’m grateful for all the folks behind Hugo who continue to improve the platform. 2019 was a very deep dive into Hugo as I tried to push the limits of what I could do to create this website. For every hour in the last year enjoying the sunrise, there were probably two hours living in code land.
Other tools and services used include: IMGIX, Flickr, Snipcart, Google Maps API, DarkSky API.
The biggest difficulty early one was figuring out how to layout the calendar and to pull in all the photo data via Flickr.
Hugo got me 90-95% of the way there with all the features I wanted to include, while some felt a little hackery, it was incredibly fun to build this site and to use Hugo.
