A Cool Morning

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.

The Rising Flower Moon

These images were taken Sunday night at Nauset Light Beach. Some were taken of the northern horizon while waiting for the moon to appear in the east.

The full moon tonight was blocked by thick clouds on the horizon, but it rose above them, and visibility was only challenged by lighter clouds blowing across from the south.

Friday Morning at Nauset Beach

As Friday arrived clouds were already approaching. The clouds are predicted to stay and the temperature to get lower. Like this morning’s sliver of pink glow an hour before sunrise, if I was going to enjoy a little spring, it had to be right now.

I do admit it was a little early in the season to go barefoot on the beach. But other than that, I had a great time. Low clouds moved in from the south forming new cloud shapes on the horizon.

Out in the Saturday Sun

I spent Saturday afternoon out in the sun, visiting a few bayside beaches before heading over to Nauset Beach. Ironically, the images of hypnotic clouds on the horizon and the stillness of the tidal flats were captured while facing a strong and steady wind while the images of white caps and ocean spray were captured in relatively peaceful conditions.

Out on the Sandbar

I was able to walk out about 50 yards out to the Atlantic Ocean this morning on a sandbar remaining from low tide. A few minutes before sunrise I had to return to the beach as the tide was coming in and it was too cold to be out with wet feet.

Long before the sun reached the horizon a beam of light brightened the sky.

Departing Storm

It rained overnight and into the early morning hours. I was out after sunrise watching the storm depart. A clear blue sky pushed the storm eastward to the ocean. There was a strong and steady wind hitting the bay side beaches. On the ocean side it had diminished to a steady land breeze.
