Sliver of Light

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

I was driving to my son’s in Albany Sunday morning to help him winterize his new apartment. It is an older house and the colder weather increased the awareness of the drafts within the place. His first attempts by himself were slight unsuccessful. I always had to perform the same tasks around my house so this was an easy assist for me. Plus, he has always been bragging about the places to eat he has found in Albany so I figured my payment could be lunch at one of those places…

The timing of my departure was going to be right at sunrise and I had hoped I would be able to capture something interesting. As I was getting ready to leave I was unsure how the sunrise would unfold as the clouds were making there way across the sky but I did still see a sliver of light along the horizon. I drove to Bellamy Harbor Park and was able to catch a few rays of sunlight before the clouds consumed the sky.

Yacht & Beach Club Resorts

Crescent Lake, Walt Disney World

I currently have a love/hate relationship with Disney. Although I have enjoyed the last few trips to my second home, I am frustrated in the direction the company has been going with the theme parks. It isn’t as special as it used to be. The little things are being forgotten in favor of what in my opinion is a grab for the money. I told myself I needed to take a break and for once in a very long time I do not have a trip planned any time soon. Still, there is a part of me that misses the experience of visiting the resorts. Here is a panoramic view of the Yacht and Beach Club resorts from the Wedding Pavilion near the Boardwalk…

Looking Back

Robert H. Treman State Park

Turning around and looking back into the gorge from the same location as yesterday’s image. The stone bridge spanning the gorge offered great images. It isn’t always the marquee attractions in a location that provide your best results. Remember to enjoy the journey to those attractions as well…
