Yesterday I got up early to go kayaking with NYC Swim‘s Ederle Swim. It was dark and cold. Why do these swims always begin so early? (Don’t tell me: time and tide wait for no man…)
But there was an unexpected bonus: a prime view of a spectacular dawn and sunrise over New York Harbor, from the motorboat that transported us from Manhattan to Sandy Hook, NJ, for the start of the swim. A few photos:

More photos from the motorboat ride are here. I’ll post a separate writeup of the swim itself later (update: it’s here).
Just beautiful photos.
that’s the payoff of these early events . . . spectacular light, and you caught it.
Inspecting the photo of the Seven Seas Navigator coming into the Harbor, I see that many of its passengers also got up early to see the show… although they were just a bit too late to see the best part.
