Photo ... Zen ...

Many of us have done this more than we can remember, but every once in a really blue moon, I still enjoy getting up in the darkness and finding somewhere to watch the sun rise. So I did it yesterday morning (oh, and the moon wasn’t blue — it was in a crescent phase up in mid-sky as I drove over to Eagle Rock park in Montclair). Here’s a little taste of what I saw today as the sun came up over Manhattan on the far horizon. To paraphrase one of the Zen gathas, this is one less dawn that I’m going to see in this lifetime. Glad that I made the best I could of it.

  1. Jim, Very nice pix, as usual. I like especially the 2nd one with its variety of colors and lightness at the top and darkness (from the clouds) at the bottom. One would think it should be the opposite, but you’ve captured it just right. The wonder and mystery of another day starting. MCS
