A favorite Sky Watch

In keeping with yesterday's City Daily Photo theme of best photo of '08, I'm going today with my favorite Sky Watch Friday photo from last year.

This was taken one early fall morning on the beach at Point Hudson. I had set up the tripod and was enjoying a cup of coffee while listening to the quiet sounds of waves and sea birds and shooting frame after frame of the ever-changing sunrise when lo, a fellow out for a morning walk steps perfectly into the picture. Ah, were it always so simple. :)

See all the Skywatchers here.
