A Sea Side Surprise. January 13, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

This past weekend’s trip to the shore to capture a full moon was scuttled by weather coming in from the west – thick, gray blankets of weather.  So I noodled around on the shore of Nahant Island, waiting for the sun (such as it was) to set, and the lights of Boston to come on.

Hey, “consolation prizes” are cool.

Finally, at just about “sunset,” I left my safe parking spot to get a view of The City, but dang! the lights weren’t on yet.

I drove around the island a couple of times, then went back to my spot to wait.

And as I sat there, a thin slit appeared in the clouds on the Eastern horizon, and through the heavy haze… there it was!

I fumbled to assemble my 40D, Gizmo and my tripod, and managed a few quick shots:

Like Frau B. says, “Ya don’t leave ’till it’s DARK!” 😉

Once again, you’ve made me miss the Atlantic coast. Even without the best light the photographs shimmer with beauty.

Happy Belated New Year; and have a great week-end. 🙂

Susan, Vikki, thanks for stopping by, and for your support. This is fun, and I really enjoy sharing my images with people who appreciate them!

PS, I’m working on it, but it’s rather wordy for what it is, so Not Quite Yet…
