Sisters in Sunrises 7/27/14

Welcome to Sisters in Sunrises – part two!  Debi Bradford and I both got up at the crack of dawn to photograph the sunrise.  I have her link attached to her name…above.  She is an incredible photographer, I think you will enjoy her site.   She is in North Carolina, and I am in New Jersey…the last one we did we compared Florida and N.C.  My weather was iffy, but I put out an intention that it would be a beautiful sunrise.

No sunrise is complete without a giant lemon on the boardwalk!  This is what I saw when I arrived.


Just cresting the horizon….


A little close up and the sky looked like it was on fire!


Caught a seagull in flight (just to the left of the jetty)…


I think that is the same seagull…


And the view of the boardwalk as I left!

I drove home and as soon as I got inside, the sky opened up and it rained cats and dogs!!

There is something amazing about viewing a sunrise.  The energy it exudes is beautiful, and stays with you all day.  Ahhhhh!

  1. Hi Himani…it is “the Jersey Shore!” Bradley Beach, Avon, and Belmar, New Jersey. A truly beautiful place that gets a bad reputation from reality TV shows and stereotypes. Have a great weekend 🙂 (no beach here this weekend. ..nothing but rain!) 🙂


  2. Oh how i agree. My old apartment faced and sat on the pond, which pointed toward the west, but also reflected the east – so I had the best of both worlds – I watched very sunrise through the mirror of the pond, which exploded in color before me – and every sunset exploding in the sky before me. Also fortunate, there was a plethora of wildlife (birds) that lived in and on the pond and marshy areas thereof – and with each and every oncoming sunrise, you would hear each species of bird wake up one at a time. It’s a very magical time of day. Alas, the apartment was far too hot (western exposure – top floor – FL), so after 3 years I moved to a building that faces a small wooded area, where I see neither the sunrise or the sunset … and miss them both dearly. I’m still grateful for my quiet and peaceful view (especially the TREES), but it’s not the same as being a part of the beauty that is the birth of a new day (which once passes, I’m usually ready for a nap hehe). Those pictures were beautiful, Where in NJ are you? I’m originally from NY (Brooklyn and Long Island area) and moved to FL 11 years ago. It’s “okay” – that’s about it “okay” … but okay is okay. 🙂


    1. Yes…something very powerful in the sunrise…and serene in the sunset. I live two miles from the Jersey shore..Lucky me. and then go to Fla. For the winter ..Palm Beach County. 🙂


      1. Oh you are SO lucky – the shore is beautiful, though I hope you didn’t suffer any damage from Sandy. When I first moved to FL in 2003, I lived in Royal Palm Beach for 3 years before moving to Orlando. My dream would be to be a snowbird (well one of many dreams) – I don’t see it happening “yet” – but one day!
