July Heat

Heat and humidity are the the calling cards of July in Delaware. Sometimes the heat works on the humidity just right and wonderful clouds develop. This was the case yesterday afternoon at the coast. I’m sure the marshes of Sussex County add a significant amount of water to create this magnificent sky. Sunset yesterday was equally picturesque at this same location. Photographs of that to come.

Canary Creek Thunderstorm

Thunder rumbled from a storm passing south of Lewes this afternoon. The view from Canary Creek was very nice.

Picturesque Waves

I finally got into the ocean yesterday with my waterproof housing to photograph some waves. It has been two summers since I last photographed waves from a spot right under them. That occurred to me while I was shooting. Last summer my right knee was in enough distress that I didn’t have confidence standing in the surf zone, but total knee replacement surgery in January has brought back strength and stability. It was really great being back in the waves with my camera.

Good Morning DE Coast

For many the 4th of July weekend is already getting going. The sun lit up the Delaware coast this morning at sunrise and it looked pretty good from Indian River Inlet.

Stella

Stella enjoys her early morning swims on hot summer days. Today it was an early dip in Rehoboth Bay, temperature at 8:00 a.m. was near 80. She loved it.

Polled Herefords Chillin

I visited the polled Herefords on Gills Neck Rd. this morning shortly after sunrise and they were lying down along the roadside concrete fence. They too seemed to be enjoying the cool dry air that blew in over the area last night. The word polled means that these cattle naturally do not have horns. That makes ol’ Eddie a lot less intimating which, in turn, gave me the bravery (stupidity maybe) to stick my head and camera through the fence rails to take his portrait. One of his ladies looked on approvingly.

Back to the Beach

It was a welcome relief enjoying a picnic dinner on Rehoboth Bay last evening. The laughing gulls were happy to have some company it seemed.
