Night Into Day

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

My timing could not have been any better yesterday morning. I went down to the barge canal at Bellamy Harbor to capture the sunrise. There were still some clouds in the sky and with the sun still a half hour away from making an appearance I was able to capture a panoramic view of the harbor that goes from a night scene to a sunrise scene.

I generally try to shoot my panoramics in portrait mode. With the harbor having quite a large viewing angle I needed 9 individual shots to create this image. Lightroom does a really good job at stitching the pano together. Once I had what I wanted it was a few minor adjustments and tweaks to achieve my results.

Morning on Blakeley

Blakeley River, Mobile Bay, AL

My flight home on Monday was not until late morning. I didn’t have to leave the hotel until 8:30am which allowed me to get out one last time for some sunrise images. I got lucky again as it turned out to be a pretty good morning. I stopped before the bridge on route 98 over the Blakeley River to capture the view toward Mobile Bay.

Alabama Sunset

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park

OK, I will admit I am obsessed with this ship. But can you blame me?

Luckily for me we were able to complete our tasks today around 3pm which allowed me to go back to the memorial park for the sunset. I checked my sun tracking app earlier in the day, so I knew the sun would set right behind the ship and I would have a great vantage point from the small pier at the park. I ran around the grounds for an hour and a half grabbing better images of everything on display. Not only was the weather better this time, but I also brought my camera. It was a good ending to a long weekend.

10 & 98 Come Together

Mobile Bay, Alabama

I’m spending a little more time in Mobile, Alabama this weekend for work. Our only opportunity to get our tasks done was this weekend so I flew in on Friday evening. We had a good day yesterday, accomplishing most of our tasks so I had a little time this morning to get out with the camera (yes, I brought it this time!). If we have a good morning today I might go back to the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park for better quality pics (fingers crossed).

This morning I stopped where Interstate 10 crosses Route 98 in the middle of Mobile Bay. I was hoping for a little more sunrise color in the sky but the clouds had not yet rolled past. You can see a sliver of orange barely above the interstate. It is all good, I do love me some light reflections on water…
