It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's The First Sunset Of 2009


The sun looks burning hot, the bird gives a sense of warmth, while passengers in the JFK bound jet in the distance must be feeling cozy - but this was the coldest temperature photo I have ever taken.

It was 22 degrees F (with blustery winds making for a windchill of near Zero) at Fire Island National Seashore on Long Island, New York. It was a new year but different from previous years.

The first sunset of 2009 burned itself into memory for tomorrows as memories of another kind flood my heart and mind, of the many new year's days spent with my beloved parents, who are now both gone forever.
