Abandoned Quarry II
Another look at the quarry. The water was only knee deep, clear, and void of life from what I could tell. You could climb on the rocks and make your way in and around the pool for different vantage points. I’m not sure what kind of stone this was. Granite? Slate?
Gloom by the Sea
It was a gloomy day in Scotland while looking across a red sand beach to the mountains on the Isle of Skye.
Never a bad photograph of Mesa Arch
I am convinced that you cannot take a bad photograph of Mesa Arch! Believe me, when I took this photograph, you could say I tried hard to take a bad photograph. It was taken hours after sunrise and what most would consider the prime time for the best light. It was completely rushed because my group I was with left and was half-way up the trail to the parking lot. My horizon was way crooked and I had to rotate and crop it in post and this resulted in many lost pixels. However, the end result is breathtaking to me just as I felt when I first gazed my eyes upon the arch and saw it glow in the most glorious of reflected light.
Sunrise, Montauk, NY
This is what I had envisioned. This is what I wanted to see and photograph. A beautiful and brilliant sunrise, rocks, and the ocean. I live in NJ. Jersey beaches don’t look like this. I searched the maps; Bing, Google Earth. I wanted to find a beach within a reasonable distance for us to pack up the car and drive to with the off chance that we’d be able to witness and photograph something as spectacular as this. The end of Long Island New York, Montauk, looked just like that place according to my investigations using the maps.
So we set out. Packed the car. Crossed our fingers for good weather and good fortune and a spot to camp for a couple of nights. Luck was with us. Maybe because it was her birthday this weekend. I’ve thanked her for so many things in my life so this is just another one of those miracles she managed to pull out and let me participate in. All I can say about that sunrise is, wow, and thank you.
