A Morning Trip

Jupiter and Hobe Sound, FL

It seemed easy enough, drive down to Jupiter and catch the sunrise with the Jupiter Lighthouse.  I have seen pics of the lighthouse and they are great!  I looked online and thought I knew a few locations with a good view…  wrong!  Definitely something that needs to be scouted ahead of time.  I spent most of my early arrival searching for a good location.  I didn’t find one.

I managed to find a spot under the Route 1 bridge which allowed me to capture the first image.  This is just prior to sunrise.  Oh, and another thing…  check your camera settings before you begin a new day!  I had spent the previous night photographing the moon rise and left my ISO at 1600.  Didn’t notice until an hour into my pics.  Rookie mistake.  😦

The second image is from a pier into the river just beyond the bridge.  I was able to setup between the bridge supports and capture the sun beyond the boats in the marina.  This was not my intended image but I think I like this one the best from my excursion.

The rest of the morning was going to be spent exploring the various parks and locations I listed from images I had found online.  Another thing that is easier said then done.  The last image is the only keeper I managed to capture.  My list of disappointments is fairly long…

  • Blowing Rocks Preserve – parking area was closed
  • Hobe Sound Wildlife Refuge – no attendant for fee and me without a pen to fill out the form
  • Seashells on beach on Hutchinson Island (Captain Kimo Gallery) – couldn’t find
  • Indian River Citrus Museum – not open on Monday…  LOL, my luck

I guess this is a sign that I will have to return and try again.  Not a bad thing when I stop and think about it.  Like I need a reason to come back…  🙂

  1. Even at 1600 look at those colors! I was out shooting the moon last night too…and I bet my ISO is also at 1600. I’m getting up out of this chair right now to check. 🙂
