Photographer's Note

The photograph shows the rising sun in the direction of Lisbon, Portugal, 6030 km (3745 miles) from a beach at Corolla on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, USA. Lisbon and Corolla are almost at the same latitude (36.17° N for Corolla and 38.44° N for Lisbon). I was strolling along the beach at the ungodly hour of 5:22 am when I came across a fisherman, wistfully looking in the direction of Lisbon, where the time would have been 11:22 am, and the sun almost directly overhead.
