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…

Bellamy Harbor

There was an attempt to get an ice cream cone last night but the crowds were out of control. Decided to postpone that treat until later in the week. It was then I realized it was about an hour until sunset and the day was still great. I packed up the camera and headed to Bellamy Harbor Park for some images.

It was good to see so many people at the park enjoying the evening. There was a group of people bringing in their kayaks, quite a few people fishing and even more out for a stroll along the barge canal. I wanted to ask if I could grab a pic of the kayaks on the stony landing as I think I could have composed a nice image with the overflow and sunset in the background, but it was three younger girls and I felt awkward approaching them with my camera. I think I missed an opportunity…

Oh well, I did pull out the Lensball and I think I managed to capture a pretty cool image. It helps when there is already a reflection in the water. Even though the Lensball inverts the image, it is hard to tell with the reflection. 🙂

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.
