Looking very much like a mesa in the desert southwest, this wind carved dune stands as a monolith in the dune field of Cape Henlopen State Park.
North winds blew hard last week leaving signs in the dunes like these arcs drawn by dune grass leaves circulating in the wind.
I was out on a bike ride yesterday afternoon and saw a blanket of yellow wildflowers on the edge of some woods. I went back to them late this afternoon with camera and lenses to photograph the beautiful yellow patch among the trees.
Easter Sunday was overcast with a rainy afternoon here in Delaware, but the day started off with a very nice sunrise. This was Indian River Inlet this morning at 6:46.
Daylight hours are longer, daffodils are in bloom, spring peepers are chirping, red buds on trees are getting larger, winter birds have left and summer birds are arriving, but the weather hasn’t been told apparently. It’s spring in Delaware and any type of weather can, and probably will happen. Today it snowed, perhaps the last snow of the season (hopefully) and probably in two weeks I will be cutting the grass wearing shorts. You just have to love spring in the Mid-Atlantic. This was the scene just outside of Dover this morning.
I had an opportunity recently to do some studio portrait work. I thought this portrait worked better in black and white.
A wet winter produces spring season ponds that frogs and other amphibians love. I loved the collection of lines found in this scene.
I was in D.C. last week on an evening when the full moon rose directly over the United Sates Capitol Building. Waiting for the elements to align, I made a photograph that I have had in my mind for a number of years. Luckily the sky was cloudless, the moon was bright and I didn’t have to fight for my space on the mall.
I wandered in the dunes this afternoon hoping to find a nice scene. With the steady stream of clouds riding on the cold westerly wind I composed with the idea of a black and white photograph. This lonely tree and the bright white sand to its left provided the elements I had hoped for. Sunlight fell from the clouds like a waterfall.
