Note: Early Tuesday morning, the forecast for the rest of the week told me to go out before dawn to record and store what a cold but quiet and sunny morning would look like. Given the excessive wind of an overcast Wednesday and Thursday, I’m glad I went out.
If harbinger of dawn looks like this over southern Queens,
morning’s first light could look like this an hour later on the KVK. By the way, the foto above comes thanks to Barbara B, and shows Tuesday morning the same scene she captured here before, during , and after Sandy and after Nemo here. Tanker Cape Tampa–in orange–was passed in this light by
Containers on their way to Boston never looked so good.
And yet . . . as she moves in the direction of the dawn, what I see goes all-gray, all shadows.
But this monochromatic accentuates the curves in her steel, here meeting Capt. Dann and then
Explorer of the Seas.
Many thanks to Barbara Barnard for the lead foto; all others by Will Van Dorp.
