SOOC - Sunrise over Carolina



SOOC - Straight out of the Camera prompts me to return to the distant past and a recently scanned photo. The day is 2 January 1981, the time is around sunrise, and I am sitting on the starboard side of flight 674, upon a Delta Airlines 727. It had been a long New Year's Day 1981 and this was the third of four flight legs between West Palm Beach and Hartford beginning at 3:00 AM. Tired as I was, I had to capture this…note the arc of the earth's curvature as the orange sunrise begins its pleasant intrusion into the day. The quality of the print is okay given its age - however the bold colors indicate the start of a fine day...
