Volume 1.1 Twin Towers’ Sunrise February 11, 2002

I received this photo in an e-mail, January 30, 2002.

I think it is both beautiful and poignant: never again will the sunrise be seen through those two towers.

These are quoted as words from the photographer, whose identity is unknown to me: “As I watched the beautiful skyline of New York City float past me I noticed the sun was about to line up just behind the twin towers. I was lucky enough to snap the picture at exactly the right moment.”

The photo is said to have been taken July 28, 2001. Here is the original image: NY_Sunrise.jpg (592x896).
