The temperature and humidity dropped and what has been for months a cool and refreshing surf became warm and soothing this morning. A very welcome change, if you ask me.
I took a quick video of three seagulls sharing a morning meal. This seemed to pique the curiosity of a couple of passing seals.
Some photos from this morning’s adventure:
I was fascinated by this plant on a recent morning walk. I will be keeping my eye out for more Daucus carota/Queen Anne Lace.
I have seen bees taking shelter in blossoms of Rosa rugosa and can imagine this flower providing the same kind of accommodations.
I was at Skaket Beach last night to catch the last sunset of spring 2022.
I wasn’t alone. Summer bugs were there as well. Although counterintuitive, getting closer to the water brought more relief from flying insects. It often does because air currents are stronger.
The colors and texture of the clouds were amazing. The afterglow was hypnotic.
It felt more like a fall morning on Nauset Beach today. Perfect beach walking weather, if you ask me.
The sunrise was stunning. But the view to the southern horizon stole the show.
This is a photo taken from the shore line at Nauset Beach during low tide. It was taken shortly before sunrise. I found it spectacular.
Interestingly enough, I soon turned around and took a photo of the rising sun. This photo was quite popular.
Beach roses glow in the cloudy twilight.
It was comfortably cool and pollen free on the flats tonight. The play between the afterglow and sharp clouds along the horizon was spectacular.
I followed the moon to Yarmouth at around 5:00 AM today. Its position in the sky as it set was that of the setting sun during winter. I am only aware of this because I took these photos from a location from which I used to capture the setting winter sun.
