On the End and at the Beginning . . .

It has always struck me as humorously ironic that Montauk is referred to as the End.  Like some medieval pontiff that insisted the sun and the planets must revolve around the Earth, Montauk must have been given its moniker by some Manhattan-centric denizen who believed the Earth revolved around the Big Apple.  The truth is that a New York day begins on the easternmost point of Long Island at the famous George Washington-commissioned lighthouse.  

Metaphorically-speaking though, I do like the echoes from thoughts passed down through the millenia: that the End is merely the Beginning.  That works especially well for me today and what  better way to commemorate that than with the first images recorded with my new FIFTY (yes, count'em) megapixel Canon 5DSr.  Not only is the quality of each image stunning but these photos can be output to a very large size and that is a very attractive option to have in the toolkit.  

And so as the weather turned auspiciously inviting, it seemed perfectly appropriate to rise early, drive East, and follow the path to the ocean's edge in order to document a beautiful new day just as the sun was rising gloriously over the horizon.

Of course, I couldn't resist exposing a panorama as well (with gratitude for the wave that crashed in right on cue).
