Jan 1 - waiting for sunrise...

Posted by
Jerry (Tampa, United States) on 1 January 2008 in Cityscape & Urban.

I wanted to catch the 1st sunrise of 2008 and it never happened... The fishermen and the birds were there but the fog and clouds blocked the sun! Oh well! I'm always excited over a New Year! New possibilities! New Hope! I wish all our members of A3 the very best in 2008!

You know what, Jerry? I was going to get up at 4 am on the first morning of the year in order to take photos and decided that my sleep was more important. As it turned out, Mother Nature painted a canvas of similar anti-climactic glory to this part of the globe. I'm not saying this wasn't worth your time and effort because it's the experience that leaves the longest lasting memory but I reckon she owes you one. ;)

2008 has at least 360 more sunrises to offer...If you pledge your allegiance to keep trying to get that once-in-a-lifetime cracker of a sunrise shot, then so do I. :D

I was not up at the crack of dawn, but it was a gloomy morning in NJ too.
Have a Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year to you Jerry!

That's a beautiful way to start the New Year.

I had some internet issues and I am now back online and trying to catch up.
