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.

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…

Sliver of Light

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

I was driving to my son’s in Albany Sunday morning to help him winterize his new apartment. It is an older house and the colder weather increased the awareness of the drafts within the place. His first attempts by himself were slight unsuccessful. I always had to perform the same tasks around my house so this was an easy assist for me. Plus, he has always been bragging about the places to eat he has found in Albany so I figured my payment could be lunch at one of those places…

The timing of my departure was going to be right at sunrise and I had hoped I would be able to capture something interesting. As I was getting ready to leave I was unsure how the sunrise would unfold as the clouds were making there way across the sky but I did still see a sliver of light along the horizon. I drove to Bellamy Harbor Park and was able to catch a few rays of sunlight before the clouds consumed the sky.

Environmental Education

Green Lakes State Park

The first park I explored last weekend was Green Lakes State Park out in Fayetteville, NY. The early morning light did not do the namesake water its proper justice but I could not resist the way the trees were reflecting. I captured the view of the environmental education building from across the lake as the morning sun did its thing…
