KVK Dawn 7

Here were previous iterations of this title, as well as here, an AK Sunrise.  If this effort were for a work published when complete, inconsistencies like dawn v. sunrise would be aligned, but this has always been a work in progress, a wandering that could end at any time. So yesterday morning I was at […]

KVK Dawn 6

Steve Munoz took the first three photos in October 1986 from Borenquin.  The tug identified as Kathryne E. McAllister appears to be the one from 1975, now known as Brendan Turecamo.  Borenquin lived many lives between launching in Vancouver WA in 1945 and scrapping in Beihei CH (near the northeastern border of Vietnam) in 1989. […]

Narrows Dawn 4

Here are previous installments.  What’s different here is that in this case I’m inside  the Narrows and shooting to the east and north. Yankee passes in light before sunrise. I rotate the lens 90 degrees to the right and Margaret stands by along with James D to support Maersk Chicago, anchored in Stapleton.  As I […]

Dawn 2021

It’s morning again!  If you can read photo, this is a long one, will take you a while. Truth be told, I took this photo on December 28, but close enough.  Seeing the magic of dawn light is the reason I often get up in the brutal darkness. If you want to see something extraordinary, […]

Narrows Dawn 3

I know others witnessed dawn this morning as the big pink ship came in . . . . By the way, if you were naming this ONE “bird” ULCV based on this morning’s color, which bird would you choose?  Nah . . . it wasn’t that.  More later. All photos by Will Van Dorp.

KVK Dawn 5

All these photos were taken in this order yesterday between 0647 and 0704 EDT.  CMA CGM T. Roosevelt was bound for sea.  As of this moment, she’s off Norfolk waiting to enter the Chesapeake.  If you don’t know, Roosevelt is one of now quite a large number of ULCSs or ULCVs [I’ve read both terms […]

KVK Dawn 4

This light is available for only a few minutes twice a day but then only if the rising or setting sun is not cloud covered.  Humidity existed the other morning too, in advance of the impending rain.  I’m not sure why, but late winter/early spring light seems richer as well, although that may be related […]

Narrows Dawn 2

It’s been a while since I used this title.  I went there yesterday morning to have a long walk but beat the impending heat.  Besides, a setting moon over Staten Island beckoned, and I had to be up early anyhow to milk the cows . . .. Well, that was a kink in the time […]

KVK Dawn 3

Here were some previous posts with “dawn” in the title.  I’d hoped to get photos like these on Easter Sunday, but  overcast skies obscured the sun rise color. Sunrise this particular morning was 0643.  The photo below was at 0644. Quantico Creek pushes a barge eastward while Stephen Reinauer heads west.   Curtis Reinauer westbound; […]

Cornell at Dawn

Put Cornell into the search box and you’ll see how many posts I’ve done on this 1950 Long Island-built vessel.  I even wrote an article for Professional Mariner.  Click here for more info on Cornell. But this post just raises a question . . .if the sunrises over a calm East River and no one is […]
