Sunrise Splendor


The Hudson River reflects the glory of a January sunrise, and suddenly Downtown Albany glows with a rare and wondrous beauty. Driving down Albany-Shaker Road, on the way to work, this sight raises the spirits, and reminds me that the sun still comes up in the morning, and that there will be another summer… at least, we hope there will be. Hope must be enough for now.

The colors here last but for a few minutes. The richness of the salmon bleeds quickly away as the sun rises and brightens in the sky. All too soon, the harsh white light has faded everything around it. While I’m glad that the sun is simply out, I wish we could hold onto the saturated hues of those first moments a little bit longer.
