As we motor up the Corsica with my longtime sailing buddy Dan at the helm, we look for an anchorage for the night. There is no wind, no storms coming; a protected anchorage is not an issue. Some in the crew suggest a spot called Jacob's Nose.....I think because of the name. We decide not to pick Jacob's Nose, not to go that far up the river. I am on the anchor, and Dan chooses our spot. We anchor on the north side of the river, and then realize that we cannot see far down the river, and that with a spectacular sunset in the offing, we lift anchor and cross to the south side.

With the clouds we had all day, and into the evening, this sunset lasted quite a while, so I will draw out the photos as well, and put them up over, maybe, three days. Here is the approach of sunset. I will admit that I put my camera into "sunset mode" for this anticipated event.

V1 is my favourite, love the cloud reflections and the glimmer in the water. Of the sunrise ones I think V3. A lovely set of your relaxing day.

Beautiful pictures. V4 for me because it has no boat in the way. Something has beautiful as this doesn't need 'context'. Really gorgeous.
