Fun with photoshop. Those power lines in the bottom right corner are a bit of a giveaway, but hardly noticeable. The angle of the sun is just impossible, though. How could it be below the trees yet still reflecting off the water? It could not, of course.

Here's another gravity-challenged picture. A sailor has got to have some fun with the complete lack of wind, right?

There's an Italian saying that goes like this:

I got caught in the rain on Sunday also, my crew decided to bunker down in the cabin and I was left alone in the cockpit, once the rain passed, so did the wind, had to motor all the way back ....

My wife took this from the dinghy on Sunday morning. That's our boat in the center with the sun rising over Vermont's green mountains.
