Seven-Years Ago (28-May-2010) — Atlantic Ocean

Day 2 of 15. Semester at Sea, Spring 2010 Enrichment Voyage.

The first sunrise on this voyage. One of many reasons I got hooked on taking sunrise and sunset images while at sea.

One-Year Ago (15-April-2016) — Atlantic Ocean

The Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 voyage was almost over. Some of the students had their faces painted with flags from the countries we visited. Can anyone identify this flag? Then one final sunset image (and yes, that is a sunspot).
