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.
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.
It seemed to me that the wind blew clouds toward shore and that caused the sun to appear more muted as it neared the horizon. Well before sunrise there was a colorful glow. The wind rushed straight to the beach and pushed waves along hard sand.
It has been a great week to see huge billowing textured clouds suspended, seemingly motionless, in the sky. This one caught the light from the setting sun.
