03.14.2020 The ride to work

For a few weeks four times a year (that pesky DST at work again) I get to see sunrises on the way to work.  There are a few routes I can take but this is the most common.  There are a couple of views to choose from, this being the second hole at The Orchards Golf Course in South Hadley, MA which hosted a  WPGA tournament a few years back.

    I enjoy fences generally, and a fence combined with such a nice sunrise is even better. Your ride to work’s better than mine, for sure, especially since my route goes through a major bridge-building project.

    • It was a game time decision to include the fence, Linda. I was up to it when it occurred that I didn’t want the putting green to be too distracting so thought the fence would solve that. As it turned out I am now also a big fan of the fence.

      I am lucky to live in the country more or less. The area is fairly developed but a lot of the rural character remains.

  2. I’m assuming that because you were on your way to work you didn’t have your “real” camera with you and used your iPhone. Couldn’t you carry your fancier equipment in the trunk, just in case, especially if you know you’re likely to see sunrises at this time of year?

    • I drive a SUV so whatever is in the back is visible. That said, where I work is not exactly a high crime area. But I really don’t like leaving the equipment unattended for hours on end. I purchased an Olympus pocket camera but forgot it on this day. The phone did a decent job, I think.


  3. Beautiful sunrise Steve!

  4. Beautiful, Steve. With the fence in the foreground, it make me want to walk forward and lean on it to really drink in that gorgeous view.

    • That would be a nice way to start the day. I am surprised that I haven’t heard about cars getting popped by shots over the green. It must have been a nice spot to watch the tournament, especially for the folks whose houses are across the road.

    Wow, what a glorious start to the day! Sorry I slept through it. 😉

    • The flip side is that I often go to bed before a glorious sunset, Eliza. 🙂 A lot of my mornings start without my really knowing what the sunrise will look like as we are surrounded by trees in this neighborhood. Ordinarily a plus but it hinders sky views.

    Like Linda, I am drawn to the fence. If I didn’t know it was a golf course I’d be thinking, what a great place to ride a horse!

    You must start work awfully early. Worth it, I suppose, for those sunrises.
