If you live on Long Island seeing the sun rise over the Great South Bay is a relatively common sight, but I can never get enough of it.
I was up early this morning and took the scenic route to work. I was lucky enough to catch this rower just as he crossed the reflection of the sun on the water.
This almost looks like a sunset, but it is not. This is the sun at 7:08am this morning, 28 minutes after it rose. Today, the Autumnal equinox and also the first day of fall, the sun rose directly in the east and set directly in the west. Yes, you can set your compass by it.
I would love to have been the guy in the boat, but even just catching a sight like this was a great way to start a new season.
