Tower of Light

Dawn on January 2 revealed gray skies over the Emerald City.  Somewhat unusual, though:  Aspira Apartments Tower looking like a lighthouse.  A break in the overcast must have been aligned just perfectly with the rising sun to allow the tower, with large glass windows, to send a bright light our way.

Closer look below ...

Followers and Friends:  As we get a new year underway here at John's Island we would just like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU.  Over the last couple of weeks we've received so many kind comments, both here on the blog and other spots both online and off.  Thanks to all of you for stopping by John's Island!


  1. John this is a running image in both the vista of subject and getting the moment just right for lighting up that building. Tricky I bet but well worth it.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Two especially striking images, John! Wishing you warmth, good health and lots of happiness in 2014!

  3. Always a pleasure to visit John!

  4. These are lovely shots! Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope you will visit me too from time to time. The "door" (blog) is always open ;-)

  5. That is definitely an amazing shot, John. I do enjoy your posts so I hope you keep 'em coming! :-)
