Word and Image


A few weeks ago, I had been wakened by several early morning phone calls – hospital stuff. Abandoning the thought of sleeping till daylight, I found myself looking up to see a spectacular dawn breaking. The orange hues lasted mere minutes and I had bonus rainbow! This light is very precious, it occurs so infrequently. Maybe it’s because I am asleep at dawn most days, but I think not.

    Spectacular, especially to see the purple color in between the orange. The sunrise in Cadillac mountain of Bal Harbor, Maine is really nice with the right lens and skill.

    Wow! Those clouds are spectacular! I’d love to see a sky like that all time!

  4. Spectacular capture Victor. This is what I call “Being at the right place, at the right time” kind of shots. It’s one of those one of a kind event that you will unlikely see a repeat. Beautiful sunrise. 🙂

    • I’ve lived here in NYC for nearly 30 years. While I haven’t made it a habit to be up and about at dawn, this is an indeed rare occurrence.
