Every day I drive over a short bridge into City Island from Pelham Bay Park. As I approach the crossing the mingled aromas of salt, sea and brine filter through my car and remind me I’m almost home.
In the winter months I arrive with the sunset. I stop along the way to photograph sea and sky defined by the atmospheric changes that create the colors for the day. It’s a small ritual to pull over, rest a moment before the landscape, and then photograph it.
Sharing the sunset daily links me to nature, and then to you, my friends. We’re all bonded by this daily spectacle and this creates an intimacy between us, even though we may be separated by long miles made up of land, sea and sky.
