Of note …the actual sunset, a few minutes later, was one of the most dramatic we’ve ever seen. Clicking pictures while driving to the mainland, however, was not going to happen.

My last post featured a barely visible bridge across the Delaware River near where George Washington famously crossed from New Jersey to Pennsylvania on Christmas Day, 1776. That experience was interesting because of the heavy air and dense fog, but the picture didn’t quite convey the ambiance.
I like the following two images a lot better however, near where George Shaw has gained some notoriety…
Background Of These Images
Jeanne and I were in Canada at “Niagara on the Lake,” which hosts the Shaw Festival each year, …the second largest repertory theater company in North America, staging plays written and inspired by George Bernard Shaw. Located on the shoreline of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Niagara River, this quaint little town is about 24km (15mi) north of the Falls.
These positive slide film images were taken from the scenic Canadian Niagara Parkway on April 23rd, 1997.

I dreamed that the Earth was being threatened by Jupiter’s “Great Red Spot!”
…No, that’s not really true, not even the dream part. BUT, the clouds above do look a little like planet Jupiter’s atmosphere with its “Great ‘Red’ Spot,” just above and behind the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant here in New Jersey! Furthermore, the smokestack may be attempting to suck power out of the “spot,” as JCP&L investigates more sustainable energy sources; similar to my previous suggestion raised about New York’s Con Ed last year, here,
For reference, here is the real thing: (Stock photo from Wikipedia.)
Jupiter and its “Great Red Spot” (8″ f/12 reflector, 75x; EXA 35 mm SLR, 1/25th sec. Tri-X B&W film,) captured a long, long time ago in my parents back yard, way before digital imaging, and by today’s standards – pretty meager!
