This is one of my favorite spots from late fall thru early spring. There are a lot of reflections and color to work with here.
The cloud bank on the horizon was very thick in wee small hours this morning. … although while still in EST, the hours were not very small.
This had to have been the coldest morning this fall. At least the coldest I had the pleasure to experience.
It was quite spectacular to come upon fog illuminated by the morning sun. The fog looked like smoke because it was so thick and in motion from the sudden change in temperature. After the fog burned off the air became still, as did the surface of the water.
Next week I will need to get out an hour earlier to catch these things.
I’m okay with that.
My day started with coffee at a south facing beach in Yarmouth. It had rained overnight and the clouds were starting to open.
The crescent moon had risen and the glow of the sun was coming to the horizon. Thick clouds formed shadows on Nantucket Sound.
Mind blowing way to start the day.
The steady breeze from the bay added to this otherworldly experience.
Today I took in the sights and sounds and especially the aroma of Nickerson State Park after another rain storm. Sunshine and a light breeze helped give the sense of the earth breathing.
Enjoyed some time in Wellfleet this morning. There was so much to see from a high moon early to sunbeams piercing through the clouds later in the morning.
Still pond water glowed with striking reflections this morning. Sometimes you just have to pull over and take a shot.
I went down closer to the water behind one of the lower dunes and was quite comfortable. The sand was not cold at all and I was blocked by the land breeze.
The pink glow and it’s reflection on the water before the moonrise was amazing.
The rising moon appeared to weave in and out of lower clouds. At times it seemed cropped, other times it looked like a sloppy mark had been made through the center.
