August Sunset

This sunset at Cape Henlopen was taken a couple of weeks ago but it took a rainy Saturday for me to get it posted.

Springing

The springing of Spring foreshadows the warm sunsets of summer and the return of well witnessed and ‘captured’ sunsets on Rehoboth Bay.  This view in Dewey will be seen again soon.

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.

Sun Peeking

Most of Delmarva was cloud covered all day today but when I left Dover after work there was clear sky to the west of me.  The small open crack in the sky between clouds and the horizon persisted as I drove southeast toward the coast and home.  I crossed my fingers that I cold get to the site I previsioned for sunset which would be about five minutes after I arrived in Lewes.  I thought the setting sun could light up the clouds from below them as the sun peeked out low past the horizon.  I set up on Canary Creek just as the light show started.  What a great way to end a dreary, cloudy Monday.

South Westerly Sunset

This time of year being on one side or the other of a high pressure system means a pretty significant change in the air temperature.  Cold air overtook the Delaware coast over the past few days as a high to our west blew in cold air from the north.  As the high moved over us to the east, southwesterly winds swept over and brought warmer, moister air to the coast.  This usually results in more colorful sunsets.  I went to Cape Henlopen at sunset tonight and found a beautiful scene which was best photographed as a panorama.

Following The Storm

After what feels like a week of clouds, rain and high wind the crappy sky opened up to give us a spectacular sunset over Canary Creek in Lewes tonight.  It was broad, colorful and full of beautiful texture in the clouds, well deserving of a panoramic display.

Sunset Over Dewey Beach

Spectacular fall weather continues and beautiful sunsets continue to light up the day’s end.  Sailboat masts at rest in Dewey frame the colors that the setting sun paints in the sky.
