Northern Sunrise

Every August I take a picture of the sunrise in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Thsy annual tradition usually involves being on the beach by six a.m.

Today’s pictures are a different sunrise, thousands of miles away and an hour earlier, local time in Abu Shineina (or so the weather app on my phone described it) on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast. Since I was awake I thought I would add to the tradition.

I didn’t get the sun coming out of the ocean due to low-lying clouds. Still, it was a novel experience.

In Maine there are always a few others around to share the sunrise. In Egypt I was alone.

The sunrise, the dawning of a new day, always brings hope. As your new day dawns, cast aside yesterday’s cares. Let us face the world together.
