    This photo was taken earlier on the morning of this outing. The color of the sunrise really was that vivid.

      Premonition of a sunrise. Or a warning.

      I’ve got some sunsets that are almost that pretty from when I lived on the bluff above the beach. In California, they are sunsets. I’ll have to scan a couple.

      And to think no 2 sunrises (or sunsets) are alike.

      My most memorable sunset was at the Club Med in Tahiti years ago.

      I was sitting on a wooden plank platform on the beach, sipping a Pinot Noir – listening to Beethoven, while miles off the shore were towering thunderclouds over a reddish water.

      If God is a painter the sky has to be His palette.

      Some years ago, sailing a mile or so off the Ten Thousand Islands in the Gulf of Mexico, heading for Key West. My friends went to sleep and I sailed on after a long night of carousing. Suddenly it seemed to me that, perhaps, an oil refinery must have exploded on shore and I was stunned by the notion. Of course it was the sun rising. I don’t suppose I had ever been in that much darkness in early morning and the contrasting yellow-red lights of a new day took me by surprise.
