If you hadn't asked I never would have noticed, but you can see it in the waves, I mean clouds, er, waves.

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?

It is obviously upside down, I see water over the sky on the left, not to mention the power lines in the "water".. Nice picture !!!

There's an Italian saying that goes like this:
" rosso di mattina maltempo si avvicina, rosso di sera buon tempo si spera"
and it proved right once again...

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.
