Missed sunrise

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A new place (or an old place with a new camera) requires more research than Google maps and TPE.

I was sure there was a sunrise over Silver Lake but of course, there wasn't one at this time of year (or any other thinking about it).

A dash up Ocracoke Island (obeying the 25MPH speed limit of course) brought me to the first beach access just after sunrise.

No surfers, no jetty or pier, steps would have to do...........

As the Sun rises it reminds us that a new day follows

We may be filled with sorrow and shock, our hearts aching with massive outpouring of love.......

...but we shall hopefully see the Sun rise each day....

What a place to see the Sun. And a fine satellite shot again. I'm sure you have been skiing already :)

Hauskaa joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta 2013!

Don't be disappointed in missing the sunset Jethro, I think this more than makes up for it..and the steps are just fine!


Best wishes for 2013 bud!

Happy New Year Jethro,

well you weren't far out as I see you took this at 07.19. So you did not miss it by much, any rate now it's time to change your hat, decorations must be taken down by twelfth night.

See you soon back to a normal out of place Yorkshire man!

Cheers. Gordon

Thank you Gordon

I don't always agree with those old dictates and sometimes there's nowt I can do about it, like being stuck wi'out Internet and t'other pictures.

Best wishes to you ol' buddy and thank you for your kind words.

Nicely done David. The stairs work just fine, and it's close enough to "sunrise" for me. Like

Cheers from up north, Randy

For such a great few days in the Outer Banks of NC I took so few quality photographs. Sometimes, its just like that Randy!

Thank you for your encouragement - David
