January 4th and 5th the Earth closest to the Sun

On January 4th and 5th, the Earth was the closest to the Sun.  How close?  The  Earth was roughly 3 million miles closer (or 5 million km) to the Sun than it is in early July.

I used the Nikon D7100 Camera with Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 50mm |1.8 G lens and the iPhone 7plus camera.

January 4th: All the photographs were taken in Bridgeton at the end D Street on the bank of the Neuse River across from New Bern.

January 5th: All the photographs were taken at Emerald Isle Point at the south end for Bogus Banks near Emerald Isle.

Taken at 17:07 at Emerald Point, Bogus Banks
Shutter Speed: 1/50
Aperture: f/16
