A New Day Beings on the Water - Atlantic Highlands  - NJ by MotherNature

A New Day Beings on the Water - Atlantic Highlands - NJ by 

The sun was coming up and we were beginning to see the shapes of boats at their moorings. Every few minutes an engine would start with that putt putt purrrr and a seagull would sleepily call out to others standing on the pilings. Cormorants swam by, diving and popping back up in some unexpected place. Soon it would be our time to leave the harbor and head out; for now, we could sit and watch the sun.

Tweaked in Picasa 3.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Gorgeus light, and congratulations for being up so early.

  • It really depends on how you define “up”. If one says it means moving and eyes open, okay, I was up – LOL The light was unlike anything I’ve seen before. There was a light rain that was moving away so it must have been the exact position of the clouds, sun, and rain. Lucky as all get out! Thanks for the lovely comment!

    Lovely light and colour

  • Thanks, Kala:>). I decided to give it a border that would intensify the colors – they were so amazing and so unusual.

    A wonderful mood :)
    I lived on marinas and and travelled on my yacht for many years and when you first pop out your head, on a morning like this, it just reminds you why you choose to live this kind of life :)
