I know the feeling well Herb.

As a big fan of sunrise/sets I just dont know when to stop. But why should we when presented with such a spectacle as this.

Memorable event--Nice job and voted.

Amazingly beautiful sunrise, Herb! You and nature cooperated in producing perfect, dramatic composition. I especially like the shift in colour over the points of land. Wonderful! Marilyn

  • I reckon it must be the new browser strip that is bringing viewers to my older and sometimes more obscure shots. Like above. I like it!

Greetings to you all, Herb
