Watchguard

Delta Lake State Park

Sunday evenings and Delta Lake work for me. I think it is a combination of timing and weather but what ever it is, I am definitely enjoying my time late on Sunday. Either the temperature was cooler or people decided to wait until the holiday but the beach was all but empty. Barely a car in the parking lot and only a handful of people enjoying the sunset. There was some remnants of a sandcastle near one of the lifeguard stations so I used the mound of sand to prop up my Lensball. My goal was to incorporate the chair in the sunset. I think it worked out quite well…

Horizon Battle

Hinckley Reservoir

The forecast was for a nice day on Saturday. The view out my window before sunrise was telling a different story. Or maybe the prelude to the day wanted to be different. There were some clouds in the sky but I could see stars too. I took the chance there would be something to photograph at sunrise and headed up to Hinckley Reservoir. As I waited in the car for the color to arrive I watched the race between the clouds and rising sun. The clouds were going to win. I grabbed a few images even though there was still 20 minutes until the actual sunrise. The battle was almost lost…

BTW – turned out to be a great day. The clouds kept on moving.

Mother Nature and I have had a difficult relationship the past few days. Although she has been providing some nice weather she thinks it’s funny let the clouds roll in around sunset. I believe she knows I was looking for any excuse not to get off the couch… Last night I fooled her, the hot, humid day did not stop me from seeking out the sunset… clouds and all.

I had seen a similar picture with the Lensball to the one I captured below and I wanted to get my own version. I knew the perfect place. I drove down to Bellamy Harbor Park at the bottom of Rome to use the benches along the canal for my attempt. This is a good place for a couple of reasons, one, there generally is not a lot of people during the week and two, the benches are aligned East to West, which would allow me to include the setting sun in the picture. My timing was pretty good… 🙂
