I took this foto at 15:40 yesterday, and I’ll call it “prelude to afternoon golden hour,” but this is a view of the turbine from the Battery Park direction. A few weeks ago, I recorded 18 minutes, so here’s more than twice that.
Geese head to wherever they go at dusk.
SalvageMaster passing Caletta ushers in the golden times, 16:30.
Over toward the Narrows, Hellas Progress radios in an initial departure call. In the distance, Tokyo Express approaches.
Lucy Reinauer pushing barge RTC 83 exits the KVK, followed
Kristy Ann, her bronze and red color enhanced by the setting sun.
By the time Kristy Ann reaches the Brooklyn half, Tokyo Express has started her approach into MOT, and
Hellas Progress has spun around toward the open sea.
By now, it’s 17:10, temperature starts to drop as quickly as the color intensifies.
It no longer feels like summer in February, nor does it look like it.
