Photo #1069 – 10.19.11
Rising Yellow Orb
While I have witnessed a handful of sunrises out on the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean, none of them has been free of cloud cover of some sort. This particular sunrise is the closest to the ocean horizon I have seen the rising sun, and this photo was taken aboard the Disney Wonder as we were cruising near the Bahamas. For a short while, the sky was such a brilliant orange/yellow color, it was great.
Just a couple days ago, I was out walking Leggs just before the sun popped above the distant hills, and due to cloud cover everywhere else in the sky except where the sun was rising, the entire sky was a deep red. By the time I went inside to get my camera, the sun had risen and the red tint had disappeared…oh well, it was still a great sunrise!
