Early one morning…..sunrise in Pembroke, New Zealand
Thought for the day…” Strong is what happens when you run out of weak”.
“If you want something that you never had, then you have to do something that you have never done”.
Currently in New Zealand waters, and at present in Auckland, is a 134m superyacht, ‘Serene’. One of the world’s largest private yachts, owned by a Russian vodka company boss, the boat is said to have cost some USD 330 million. Crewed by 52 staff, it boasts 7 decks, 2 helipads, an indoor salt water swimming pool, movie theatre, nightclub, climbing wall, gym, underwater viewing room, and several jacuzzis. When the Russian owner is not using Serene, it is available for charter. Not cheap though, as rumor has it that when Bill Gates rented it, the cost was some USD 5 million a week. No doubt that the price includes a good selection of vodkas in the bars though.
Today’s photo is a lucky shot. Suddenly one morning for about 5 minutes the clouds parted during the sunrise, and just for a very short time, I was able to get some great photos of a dramatic sunrise. Another occasion when it was good to have the camera there and ready……..Lots of photos of sunSETS on the internet, but not so many of sunRISES. Taken in Pembroke, New Zealand, with the Fuji X-E1 camera.
And another photo from the archives…window cleaners in Ljublana, Slovenia
