    7AM is my compromise time for leaving the dock. We used to leave at 5:15AM - but, the current set of folks just don't want to do that. Actually with the conditions we have been having the best conditions have been between 7Am and 9AM.

    So, I was up this morning - saw the sunrise starting to form - raced down to the dock to get the pictures - then fed and walked the dog - dealt with pictures on the computer - then was on the dock ready to leave when the boat arrived for skiing. Yes, the conditions were excellent. Other folks do not start to ski in the morning till around 4th of July. So, we are the only boat out there right now.

    This is not a sunset or sunrise picture - it is a full moon rise. Well, it would be if you could see the full moon behind the clouds.

    So, I took a 2 minute exposure to see what I would get.

    Well here are a few that are a bit further afield. Both in time and space.


    Looking out in the Aleutians


    Nothing like the desert or the ocean to offer up a sunrise. From the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico.


    A couple more from the Bering Sea

    I took this from the dock a "bit after sunset" last night. It was at 10:00 PM. The view is to the east and it is a 3 minute exposure.



    The lights on the right should Oxford, Maine.

    Wow - talk about a jolt back to reality. Not just the contrast of mountain sunrises and sunsets and NE temperatures to the desert and 133 degrees () - but to what we are living in vs. what he is obviously living in. Thanks for sharing the image Kathy and for the needed jolt. Your nephew should be in all of our prayers along with all the others who are in Iraq and the other places so far away from where we are in so many ways.
