Sometimes, there is not a whole lot to say. You wake up early, you grab your camera bag, and you go out seeking good light and an interesting subject or two. Maybe a story will develop. Or maybe nature will just blow you away and that’s really it.
On our second morning along Falcon Cove Beach, I snuck away from the house and found a collection of sunbeams that stuck around for an hour. First, in the forested path down to the beach …
And then out of the woods onto the beach, where the sunbeams permeating the surf’s mist, created a tiger-stripe illusion across a half-mile of sand.
The whole scene didn’t seem real. To someone who lives in a climate where dust is more common than fog, it was a celestial sight.
After I had photographed nearly every beam and exhausted every angle, I returned to the house for a cup of coffee. We’d soon pack up for Hug Point State Park, where the sun and sea mist would continue to dazzle. More to come.
