Summary – The vacation rental faces west on to Bass Harbor. Sunsets to date have been nice, but none spectacular. But I’m a sucker for sunset clichés regardless.
Roll mouse over postcard to see the picturek
I wrote the above summary yesterday morning
Noted that the sunrises had been ordinary
Wouldn’t you know that tonight was the
Sunrise to end all sunrises
My wife observed – “Almost unreal”
I was going to put tonight’s at the end of this post
Nah! They deserve to be seen alone
Tune in tomorrow for postcard #14
Click on any image for a full screen slide show
Most have matching horizontal & vertical pairs
As usual – As seen in viewfinder
With minor tonal and color contrast adjustments
This next one (last that I took) was taken at sunset + 35 minutes
Harbor Lights in the village of Bernard across the harbor
It includes the moon & Venus, the “evening star”
In this reduced size image, Venus is a bit hard to see
Near right side; 40% down from top
Taken while walking the dog in the yard
D800E + 24-70 2.8 lens = a little over 4 pounds
Handheld (while holding the dog’s leash 😉 )
I was amazed the image worked – luck
No vibration reduction & shutter speed was
about 4x slower than it should have been
Just as I mentioned “Twilight Time” by the Platters, 1958
For the sunset images
The song that goes with this image is
“Harbor Lights” (also Platters, 1960)
Memorable since I was commissioned in the Navy in ’60
Saw lots of harbor lights over the next five years
usually while humming this song 😉
Trivia – both songs were written & recorded by others
Several years before the Platters’ hit versions
