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.

Today we take a quick return trip to the shores of Paradise Island in the Bahamas, a place where nature's beauty is always on display. On this particular morning I was on the beach before first light, simply waiting for the sun to rise. I had been looking for something to place between the camera and the sun as a foreground element when I spotted a gentleman who had just emerged from the hotel to begin setting up for the day. Look no further, I thought to myself, and so came the image below.

The beautiful sky above soon burned away into mid-morning harshness as tourist flocked to the beach for a day of fun and relaxation. That fact alone is why you must get up super-early to catch the masterpieces often painted by the hands of nature.

Thanks for visiting!

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...
