This was one of those God speaks through Nature moments.
There was some nice color in the eastern sky this morning before sunrise.
Was able to get it some air time, too. Always grateful to have more exposure for these images.
It was quite cloudy Saturday morning and I wasn’t sure what I would find when I got to the National Sea Shore. For a while it seemed I would be better off doing something else. But when I approached the entrance to Coast Guard Beach I was glad I came.
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.
I was fortunate enough to be on Marconi Beach well before sunrise this morning. For a few minutes the clouds to the south of the setting sun began to glow from the sunlight below the horizon.
I was able to capture the beginning of this on video.
The temperature and humidity dropped and what has been for months a cool and refreshing surf became warm and soothing this morning. A very welcome change, if you ask me.
It was a very comfortable morning with a land breeze and a dreamy sky. I wasn’t alone taking in the sunrise, which was fine. Still enjoyed the cool ocean on my ankles.
I took a quick video of three seagulls sharing a morning meal. This seemed to pique the curiosity of a couple of passing seals.
Some photos from this morning’s adventure:
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.
