I awoke early this morning and took my dog Juni for a walk along the canal. You could feel the coolness in the air giving that wonderful feeling of the approaching fall. There was a hustle of activity at the docks as the fishermen were stocking their boats for a day on the water. This photograph was a 20 second exposure and, as you can see, there was a calmness to the morning. I have photographed this scene numerous times in the past but somehow it keeps luring me back.
Crabbers of Bowers Beach, Delaware heading to work in the Delaware Bay.
This is the entrance to the Delaware Bay from the Murderkill River in Bowers Beach, Delaware. The distant lights are coming from the ships that are waiting their turn to head up the bay into the Delaware River.
At Bowers Beach. I got a call from a friend of mine last evening asking if I wanted to get up early for a photoshoot. So, out of bed at 4:25 this morning, grabbed my camera gear, met Jason at my jeep at 4:50 and off we went for a 40 minute drive north to Bowers Beach. This photograph was taken at 5:55 am which was about 22 minutes before sunrise. It was still the "Blue Hour" which gives the image its color.
Taken at 6:00 am, 16 minutes before sunrise along the shoreline of the Murderkill River looking toward the town of Bowers Beach. I love shooting in the morning.
Also taken today during my morning on the beach. I enjoy seeing all of the sailboats and catamarans on Lewes Beach in the summer..
Well, sunrise is getting later allowing me to sleep in and still catch it rising over the horizon. My little pooch and I took a nice morning walk on Lewes Beach and we were greeted by this Boston Whaler moored at low tide. Lewes Beach is such a gem and it's even better during the early hours of the day.
Yet another from my morning walk on Lewes Beach.
This is another photograph of the Delriver as the moon was setting yesterday morning. I was hoping the moon would stay in full view as it settled over the ship however, the clouds had another though in mind. I took these photographs from the Roosevelt Inlet parking lot.
Up at 4am to head out with my camera and to hopefully get a decent image of the setting of the moon. No, it's not yet full but it was 99.8% when I took this photograph at 5:19. It will be full at 4pm today with the Blood Moon eclipse happening at a time of day when it will not be visible to us in North America. But, don't fret... We'll have the opportunity a total lunar eclipse on January 20-21st of 2019.
Of the sun as it peeks out over the horizon on a warm summer morning. Taken July 1st on Lewes Beach, Lewes, Delaware.
This is another one of the photographs that I took during my early morning walk this morning. Being on the beach as the sun rises in the sky is such a treasurable experience. I must force myself to get up early more often.
I drug myself out of bed at 5:05am today to go for a sunrise walk on Lewes Beach. When I got to the beach I saw this sailboat anchored offshore and I knew it was going to be my subject once the sun started to rise.
We are back in Lewes after 6 nights on the road. We spent the first two nights in Cherrystone Resort Campground in Cape Charles, VA and our campsite was right along the water's edge of the lower Chesapeake Bay. This was our view as the day was coming to an end.
Taken on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.
To take this photograph I tucked myself down behind a scruffy little bush to add something special to my sunrise. I took this as the sun was just beginning to rise over the Delaware Bay.
To me, this old dock is so Cedar Key... Old Florida and, it's what attracts us the town. With a great sense of community, good restaurants, fun and interesting people, bands like The James Gang, it's a great place to visit. We just completed our annual road trip to Florida and it included 17 nights in Cedar Key. Next year we will be staying a month. While in town I just had to get the right light to take a photograph of this old dock. I went out several times and it just wasn't what I wanted. Then it happened on February 11th at 6:33 am. Not only was the light right, I also had the quarter moon. Sometimes you get lucky.
