First Light 2016

2016_First_Light_FinalI welcomed in the new year in El Paso, Texas this year.  From this location you can see not only Texas, but New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico.

My thoughts traveled to the countries that I have visited and the “such a small world” feeling that consistently pervades interactions and events. At the same time, we have politicians who wish to build walls to keep out some of our neighbors.  Looking out from this scenic overlook, it is hard to locate the exact lines which mark the borders and “ours” from “theirs.”  The desert on one side looks the same as the desert on the other…as do the plants, insects, and birds.  While there might be differences among the people on Earth, approach the new year with the knowledge that we are all in this together.

For the past 9 years, I’ve shot the sunrise on Jan. 1 as a way to welcome the new year.

2015 First Light

Every January 1st, I make an image with the first light of the new year.  This is year number 8.

This is the first shot from outside of Rhode Island and in the waters of Mexico, by far the warmest New Years yet.

What a great way to start the year!

Best Wishes to everyone in 2015.  Jason

2014 First Light

Every January 1st, I make an image with the first light of the new year.  This is year number 7, and at 20degrees, one of the coldest.

Thanks to Greg for handling the cold like a champ.

What a great way to start the year!

Best Wishes to everyone in 2014.  Jason
