There was a brief glow from the rising sun before it rose above the horizon. For the most part, the dunes blocked the chilly wind. Walking along the shoreline with only sea birds and a curious seal as company was a great way to start the day.
The clouds were thin enough along the horizon for color from the sunrise to shine through. A storm approached from the west. It was an odd sensation to stand in the rain to take these photos.
Clouds were thick on the horizon. There wasn’t much burn at sunset but plenty of unique cloud images.
I often go to the National Sea Shore on Sunday mornings to catch those sky burning sunrises. But today was overcast and otherwise more toned down. I went to the bay side of the Cape. Clouds on the horizon played with water and sand making for a meditative, almost hypnotic experience.
Little wonder why I was the only one at each beach I visited this morning. It was cold with a brisk wind off Cape Cod Bay.
For me the lure of a setting moon over the bay at low tide was too much to pass up.
Images from late afternoon and early evening in Falmouth. The Full Beaver Moon rose in approaching darkness. The views before moonrise were also spectacular.
Once again I find myself amazed at how still a morning can be after a day and evening of strong wind and significant rain.
It’s hard to imagine having a bad day when it starts like this. Early morning glow at Fort Hill in Eastham.
I had not intended to come here. Although I had my camera with me, I had not intended to take early morning photos. But I could not help but notice the color high in the sky and follow it.
The sun set this afternoon at 4:30 EST.
These pics taken from Chapin Beach, Dennis.
Made it back to one of my favorite spots in Harwich this morning before the fog completely burned off.
Warm day long sun plus cool nights plus no wind equals incredible scenery.
