Sunrise, Sunset

The lyrics from Fiddler on the Roof may at least be part of the explanation for our fascination with sunrises and sunsets.
“Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.”
Naples, Florida is known for its sunsets, but I hope you will also enjoy my Everglades sunrise photo.

Lingering Sunset

Pat and I rarely do evening shoots, in part (as Pat noted) there is a sense of being hurried by the setting sun. One evening a couple of weeks ago we did go out in the evening and were richly rewarded by a magnificent lingering sunset. It was like a 3-act opera. We started with an overture as the sun teased us with what was yet to come, then a first act where the dramatic sun began to color the sky well before sunset. The second act occurred when the sun was just above our horizon, followed by a third act where the sun disappears. Well after the sun was gone we were treated to a gorgeous magenta finale. Hope you enjoy this lingering sunset.

Cruisin’

Cruises can be a fairly reasonably priced all-inclusive vacation (if you remember that “all-inclusive” doesn’t include everything). Jo and I took some time to reconnect and enjoy each other in a brief (4 night) cruise in the Western Caribbean. The boat population was almost twice the population of Joanne’s hometown. We started and returned to Miami with ports of call in Key West (previous photoblog post) and Cozumel. Here are some shots of the boat, from the boat and while at sea.
