Yes, picture perfect.

But a little too cold…..and too many commitments today.

If you look at all the sunrise pictures I share you will notice that they are all unique.  This one was quite a surprise.  I can’t remember seeing these colors before.  I think that the amount of moisture in the air changes the colors (I never use filters).  And since the moisture in the air varies considerably it can affect the way the picture looks—dramatically.

Then it should give pause because every picture you see is a once in a lifetime picture.  Be happy that you caught it, that you enjoyed it.  And if you can, share it.  Every moment in your life is precious.  We are only here for a dozen or more decades.  Remember that each time you experience a sunrise.

I have only started categorizing my sunrise pictures separately but going forward I will do so.  So that you can browse them and compare.

Thanks for your interest.  And if you have a second, please like the page and the website.  I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Great article By Nicolle Littrell about, what else? ROWING!

“There is nothing, simply nothing, like being in a small wooden boat in a big body of water. To propel a small craft through wind and waves with your body alone is empowering. The communion with water, light, and sky is healing. The access to wildlife makes you care more about this amazing place. Rowing is transformative—I know it has been for me. “

Last week on my early morning walk

I love the early morning’s on Kingston Point Beach.  Almost always the water is calm and it is very quiet.  As soon as the weather improves (when the water plus air temperature is above 100 degrees) this is where I will launch my boat for a lovely two mile row.

Here you see a barge pushing its cargo North towards Albany.  The seagulls vie for bits of food in the shallow waters of low tide.  In the distance the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge is shrouded with morning mist. Alot of people drive out here just to take in the peaceful scene.  It calms the mind before a long day of, well, whatever.
