Winter Sculpting

Dunes Strata Cape H 3.9.2014_4498.BW

 

The winds of winter work on dunes as a sculpture might work on clay.  This dune at Cape Henlopen has been worked over during the winter leaving interesting strata exposed.

DC Lines

DC 2.26.2016_2240

Some business travel has kept me busy for a few weeks and so I have not posted for a while.  I was in DC recently and found this interesting perspective of the Washington Monument and the Capitol. Washington is so full of interesting architecture that creates fantastic lines and shadows.

Winter Beach

As a kid, not living near the coast, I wondered what the beach looked like in winter.  Did it get snow? Does the sand freeze? Does the ocean freeze?  The answer is yes to all three questions.  This year the beach has not experienced much of these conditions but last year was another story.  This photograph was taken at sunrise in February 2015 at Cape Henlopen State Park.  Perhaps we will see the beach covered with snow this year before spring arrives.

Winter Beach

It was reported that a few flakes of snow fell today on the Delaware coast.  After a very warm December, January is starting off with weather that is more seasonal.  I reached back to a photograph from January, 2013 to remind us what winter at the beach can look like.

Down The Line

Looking down the line of a breaking wave from last summer.  How many days until beach weather returns?

Last Rays Of Light

The last rays of the setting sun lights up the sky west of the Delaware Breakwater East End Light.

Cape Rainbow

Thick clouds  with rain covered the sky today but along the western horizon there was a break.  I knew from experience that that there was  great likelihood that the sun would poke out right at sunset and light up the clouds, and if we were lucky the rain would continue and a rainbow would form over the ocean.  Lucky on bot counts.  Here is the rainbow.  I’ll post the sunset another day.

Serendipity

You never know what you will find when you take a walk in the woods on a fall day.  Thank you Eliot Porter for inspiration many years ago.
