A sunrise is a gift

Warning - This thread as nothing to see with trawler!

This morning I was walking to the train station to go to the office (yes I know this is miserable) and was watching the sun rise on my way. It was pure beauty, a kind of rebirth feeling announcing a gift, something new to happen, one more opportunity to live another new day and this made me remember sunrise seen from water, nobody around, rising sun on the water horizon, kind of poetic.
While this has nothing to see with trawler, do you enjoy sunrise moment as much as I am?

Absolutely. Sunsets also.


One of my favorite photography topics is sunrises and sunsets, and we get some real beauties in our area. Here's my favorite sunrise photo...





and sunset photo....



They definitely are a gift to treasure.

One of my favorite times on the boat is being offshore, taking watch at 4:00am and watching the sun come up. Thatís just about as good as it gets.

May seems too simplistic but when I witness this I just feel grateful to get another one

I like to remind myself that it's Earth roll, not sun rise. There's a profound difference. We tend to be a pretty self absorbed species, so it's a good reminder that the Universe doesn't revolve around us.

Indeed but whatís a gift to see the earth roll and give us such a scene, moreover one more to witness. I look back often and think that many ones do not have the luck I have.

Hi, the same sun we have everywhere, cool! Enjoy sharing when it go up and rises every day, but fortunately sometimes only at the top of the clouds.

Yes, only one times my boat (and every i see my genny ). Northenligts is only green golours but very experiense, sea shadows light, very cool.

When I was young and in the army, we were in the Arctic Circle north of Lapland, where there were often northenligts, stunning when the big snow fields and fells reflected the flamboyant light. There faced the world's best hotel to see northenlights glass igloo hotel room.

Agree, a special thing to see, especially on a boat. The older I get, the more I appreciate them.

When I was in AK while in the USAF I had many opportunities to see the Northern Lights. The most stunning display was on a flight from Greenland back to AK on a C130. From high altitude, with no clouds and no dust in the air they are truly spectacular. Multi colored and very bright.


Ya gotta love the displays mama nature provides for our viewing pleasure.

I haven't seen the Northern Lights from aboard a boat, but was mesmerised by them in the Yukon territory on a few cold February nights.


Here's one of my favourite sunset shots taken in a warmer climate by a friend as I rowed out to the boat.

I saw them in Gulf of St Lawrence several years ago on a trip to Montreal.

Had a nice gift yesterday morning.

Was watching the space station pass nearly overhead in Wrightsville Beach,NC while at anchor and had a soectacular meter streak right in front of it.
