A New Day Dawns

[Cruise Series]

One of things I loved most from our cruise earlier in the year was just standing on deck before everyone else was awake and enjoying the sunrise. What a way to start the day.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

Joyce from Montana, United States

I agree. Sunrises are a special show and very good way to begin a day.
Well duh, it IS the beginning of day, you know?
Yes I got the DVD Jason and watched it right away. I sent an email to you thanking you and commenting on things. Might have gotten lost in the shuffle of the inbox, or sent to the moon by accident. So enjoyed it the DVD, thank you again, especially since you were in it a few times and sometimes your voice. Really was like being there. I have a new respect for hurricanes, and sigh, lets hope Isaac dissipates before he does damage.

26 Aug 2012 8:50pm

@Joyce: Thanks Joyce! Glad you liked the DVD - funny, I never got the email. Guess it's still floating around in cyberspace somewhere. LOL The track of Isaac is quite uncertain right now, but it looks like the potential for it to make landfall in LA/MS at just under major hurricane status is there.

Victoria from Sweden

Wow, wonderful and beautiful picture... Love this picture!!!
