Sunday Afternoon at Bass Hole

I had a great time on the boardwalk at Bass Hole this afternoon. A bit breezy but sunny, for the most part.

Buoy, Oh, Buoy!

The beach was enormous tonight as the tide was at its lowest just before sunset.

Parking lots were full and scores of others arrived by bike or foot. Even still, there was a lot of room to roam, fly a kite, play, hang out, take photographs.

Saturday Morning

I was on Chatham Light Beach well before sunrise today.  There was a cool breeze from the north and a gentle pastel glow along the horizon.

There was a thick cloud layer blocking the iconic capture of the sun popping above the water.

I headed towards Orleans and was fortunate enough to capture another Cape iconic image of the sun rising above a bay. This was taken south of the Pleasant Bay, Orleans.

A Winter Morning Walk

After days of rain the sky cleared at least a little bit.

It was much cooler this morning than it has been in quite a while. About halfway through the walk the Northwest wind picked up and dropped some bay effect snow/sleet. It seemed like the moisture whipped up from about a half mile away didn’t have time to fully form as flakes and came down as ice. I thought it ironic that they looked very much like ice melt pellets.

The low lying vegetation on the edge of the forest seemed to hold up these wind formed frozen droplets like jewels for all to see.DSCN2602DSCN2603DSCN2605021420 Morning Magic021420 Morning Moon
