The morning after the storm

With a slight rose colored band cutting through the sky, the Lisa Ann II come into the Gloucester Harbor before the sun comes over the horizon. She looks like she's setting low in the water. Perhaps a good evening's fishig? I hope she did well.

Tenpound Island Light is plastered with snow, but still the red flashing light was visible. I wish it was photographable in the dark, but it just would not have worked.

A nice rose glow on the first shot Steve and great use of the light on the second. I always think that the added bird or two in the sky helps to make a scenic shot as well.

The first shot was interesting, with the clouds muting the light, but then I svrolled down to the second! It is breathtaking!!! I love it!!!

Wow these are very nice scenery and I can see you are still enjoying the snow. it is rather cold over here these days, -9°c but no snow!

There are so many masts and receivers and antennae on that fishing boat that she looks positively top-heavy. Marvellous shot but the second is simply stunning. What a wonderful place to live.

Great pictures. Love the rosy color in the first picture and the way the sun was illuminating the land and houses with the snow in the second.

Beautiful photography of the harbor, Steve! Being land-locked in Kansas, USA, makes these photos extra wonderful!
