Although this isn’t a landfall photo , it brought back the incredible feeling that comes over you when you get that first, sometimes ambiguous bit of land peeking above the horizon after weeks at sea.Can’t find a thread for sunrise pics, and this morning’s was so good I have to share. Came after a long hard night getting hammered by a huge squall, then becalmed. Woke at first light and watched this develop behind me over Borabora (right side), as I hove-to near Maupiti.

I see my Bimini and flying bridge in the distance just to left of the rising sun. It was indeed a beautiful morning, followed by a lovely powerboat day. You might as well have left the vertical awnings furled, however.A fiery sun rising over Perry Creek on Vinalhaven Island, Penobscot Bay.
