3,653 sunrises and counting


A Cornwall-based photographic gift company is celebrating its tenth birthday by sharing all the pictures it has taken over the years, online.


Every morning for the past ten years, The Day That has captured the sunrise over St Ives Bay – amounting to a staggering 3,653 photographs which are then turned into special personalised gifts to mark the significance that one day can hold to somebody.

And to mark its anniversary, it is sharing all the photos on Pinterest for everyone to enjoy.

Founder, Gavan Goulder, said: “Each sunrise is symbolic of the dawn of a day that changed somebody’s life, and each gift illustrates new beginnings and memorable moments.”

Inspired by the birth of a close friend’s baby in 2000, Goulder took a photograph to capture the special event and gave it as a gift to mark ‘Teddy’s First Day’.

He started The Day That after the birth of his first daughter in 2005 and from there the idea flourished to include sunrise photography.
