It’s Sunday and so it’s time for another “Picture Perfect” moment. Though we’ve featured only sunsets so far, the title of Ernest Hemingway’s early novel – full of possibilities and new beginnings, The Sun Also Rises, has inspired the theme for this week’s post. (It just so happens that the first line in Hemingway’s novel also references none other than New Jersey’s own Princeton University!)
As one of the fifteen east coast states, New Jersey offers some amazing locations to view a sunrise. Despite that, many people I know are still fast asleep when the sun comes up in the morning, and those who are already awake are too busy working or on their way to work to appreciate the time of day properly. Regretfully, I can’t say that I’ve had very many opportunities to be awake as the sun comes up with nothing else to do but enjoy it.
Earlier this summer however, photographer, Tim Biel, did just that and greeted the sun as it rose over Long Branch, NJ. I think he captured the peacefulness and serenity of the promising early morning, but I’ll let you decide for yourself…
