Surreal Sunrise

28 Sept 2014: It felt like I was paddling in a Turner painting. This was such an amazing experience that will be etched in my mind for ever. I hope you enjoy the photos.

You could see the heavy fog rolling into the main basin from the east and I was so excited to see what going unfold.

The fog began to glow gold as I headed under Commonwealth Avenue Bridge

There wasn’t any need for speed at all; I wasn’t moving for anyone.

I just drifted away and soaked up every minute of it. This sunrise was going in slow motion.

It looked like ‘The Scorchers Sunrise.’
