The Swiss Sun

The sun is coming up, we say. But is it?
As always, it depends.
From my window - I live in Eastern Switzerland - I can see how it starts to lighten the top of a nearby mountain, then the sunlight slowly spreads downwards until the whole mountain and the low lying plain bask in it.
In other words, where I am the sun is not coming up, it is coming down.
