Dawn Begins Anew

Dawn Begins Anew

Dawn begins anew in this blue hour image created along the shores of Town Creek, just off of the Corrotoman River in Millenbeck, Virginia. Several days of rain had preceded my arrival and there was plenty of standing water along the shoulders of the roadways but as nature always does, she delivered a beautiful morning after the storms cleared the coastline.

The Narrows

Creating images during the blue hour has become one of my favorite things to do photographically. There is a little magic in the air that seems to make nearly everything look somewhat dramatic when you view the photos. Of course, it’s mainly about the lighting and the blue hour has a low intensity, softening effect on the atmosphere in general. The resulting hues of blue and purple can be quite stunning. Today's image was taken shortly after this Bridge in Blue shot from a previous post.

Built upon the foundation of a former oyster shucking house is The Narrows, an outstanding seafood restaurant known for it's outstanding crab cakes and cream of crab soup. Pictured above is the actual rear of the building, which I found more interesting than the traditional restaurant front. Takes a photographer to come to that conclusion. :-)

Until next time...
