Cocoa Beach Pier
I suppose I should make my apologies now. I’m still processing images from my trip to Florida. It is a combination of numerous opportunities for good images and the winter hasn’t settled in here in Upstate NY. I find it hard to go out and photograph when there isn’t a nice layer of white snow covering the brown of late autumn. So for now, you will get a few more Florida images… 🙂
This image is back up at Cocoa Beach. I hung around until the sun broke the horizon. There was a nice layer of clouds low in the sky that I felt would provide some interest as well as catch more of the morning colors. It never hurts to have the pier in silhouette against the sun, nor some nice waves running toward the shore. I almost switched to my telephoto lens but this 40mm top end on my workhorse lens provided the right amount of zoom. Any closer and I think I would have been crowding the frame.

I apologize but I am still stuck back in that vacation week at Christmas. It is more the days at work than the weather that keeps bringing me back to that week and the enjoyment I had going out each morning for pictures. My first excursion for sunrise pics not at Disney produced a great many ‘keepers’. There was something about the silhouetted palm trees that just says Florida to me.

A beautiful sunset and me without my tripod. I even left work a little early to get a jump on the sky as it was setting up for this show. I had to pick my daughter up at college tonight right around sunset and peeking out the windows at work I knew it was going to be a good one. Unfortunately, I had used the tripod on Friday when I went playing in the creek and failed to return it to the car. Now I needed to get creative with some handheld images. I’m always a fan of a strong silhouette and the view from the upper parking lots did not disappoint. This is looking southwest over the Wildcat Field House.
