Fountain Blue

Welcome back! Today's post comes to you from Hilton Head Island where I have been hanging out the past several days. I thought I would share another blue hour image of a scene just outside of our Villa.  As the sun drops below the horizon the centerpiece fountain turns blue in this 30-second long exposure shot.

The title of this image is Fountain Blue, not to be confused with the French city of Fontainebleau.

Hilton Head is a beautiful park-like place with lots of things to do. There is an extensive network of pathways for biking and walking, providing access to the entire island. The beachfront stretches along the Atlantic ocean for 10 to 12 miles and while busy, is not crowded with people like many other beach-town resorts.

Time seems to go by quickly, a sign of having fun. :-)

I will only be here a few more days and hope to squeeze in a trip to nearby Savannah Georgia, a mere 20 miles to the south.

Needless to say, lots of photos have been taken and I look forward to sharing many of them with you.

Thanks for visiting!

Revel Atlantic City

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you enjoyed a very nice weekend. Part of this weekend was spent in Atlantic City as we celebrated the birthday of a dear friend. We really had a great time just hanging out and enjoying ourselves.

Today's image was taken on the boardwalk at New Jersey Avenue and shows the soon to be open (April 2012) Revel Atlantic City Resort and Hotel. It certainly looks like a real beauty from the outside and I'll be returning for an inside look after the dust settles. I understand that the interior will be sporting an ocean theme, which only makes sense here on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Can hardly wait to see it. :-)

I captured this image as the sun was rapidly falling and the sky was transitioning toward the "blue hour". This is one of the last sunset shots of the day.

Being a fan of architecture, I couldn't stand here without zooming in for a closer look at those beautiful glass windows. You'll also notice that the place is well secured. There is a policeman on a bike and a patrol car stationed nearby.

Nothing like a brand new hotel and casino to draw a crowd of people and you can bet this place will be hopping. This may be one of the last images of so few individuals in and around this building. ;-)

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

A Seat at the Beach

Really quick post today, gang. I'm on the run, road trip actually. There is a ton of stuff to squeeze into today, which makes it the type of day that makes me long for the image below. Since I won't have time, please have a seat at the beach for me. I left the chair below in Virginia Beach... just for you. :-) Enjoy the day!
