Nice morning light today. Been awhile since I’ve seen this color.
Last sunrise of March 2015. Decided to mix some glass into the morning ritual.
Shots from a trip to the coast of Oregon back in 2007. I believe these were taken in Florence on the river.
Experimenting with some glass.
Started off scouting out the Marsh this morning but the wind was so strong it blew the clouds to the beach. So, to the beach I went and the clouds looked like they would be better by the pier. The clouds in these pictures weren’t there when I first got to the beach. You just never know what you’re going to get when the sun actually comes up.
Getting out of bed this morning was a bit of a stuggle for me but I pried myself from under the covers and hit the road. There is a high spot on my drive to the coast each morning that gives me a glimpse of what the sunrise is shaping up to be. This morning the sky was a nice purple hue about 40 minutes prior to actual sunrise so I knew that there was good likelihood of color. I decided to head to the Black Point Inn and access the beach from the beach club as I figured there would be footprints and I wouldn’t have to hoof it through waist deep snow. Luckily someone had cleared a path to the staircase to get down to the beach. Unfortunately, there were no stairs. Doh@!#!@. So I had to follow someone elses footprints through the snow and down a rocky slope to get down to the beach. I was very glad that I did as this was a very cool sunrise. One of those rare mornings when there is a haze that allows you to look directly at the sun without burning your eyes out and it was a deep purple/red color. Today was a day that I wished I had a better camera with a really good zoom to get a tight shot on the sun as it made its way over the horizon and into the sky. Still a great way to start the day. I took a 2 hour nap when I got home. Probably posting too many shots here but I couldn’t decide which ones to leave out.
I had been wanting to check out this spot that is a bit further away for me for awhile now and today seemed like a good day. Glad I made the effort and a little longer drive. I had the whole beach to myself for awhile. One of my favorite things about the cold morning sunrise efforts, the solitude and getting lost in the moment. Fortunes Rocks, Maine.
