A Calm Chilly Morning

Tomorrow we are supposed to get a nor’easter. As calm before the storm moments go, this one was stunning.

Dowses Beach, Osterville


Bright and Sunny Dowses Beach

This morning I skipped coffee and got right out to Dowses Beach. The sky was clear and there was some ambient light before sunrise along the horizon.

As is so often the case, I found myself overwhelmed by the bright light from the sun as it rose above the horizon.

Absurdly obvious, the sun was so damn bright.

Celebrating Morning Light

The easy part about taking morning pics in the winter is that you can sleep in a little longer. The tough part about taking morning shots in the winter is that it is winter. It’s often cold and wet.

Sometimes you need a little luck. Sometimes your car roof comes in handy.

Fall Morning

It has been a typical fall morning so far. There were openings in the clouds along the horizon at the National Sea Shore which invited a glowing sun that never showed. Clouds thickened, fog rolled in. On my way to the bay side the sun shined through the clouds. And then it didn’t. Now it’s raining.

Before all this, I was at Marconi beach. It was dark enough for me to see my shadow form from the moonlight. It was a good opportunity to take some pics with longer exposure times.
