Blue Dawn


no images were found

A couple of weeks ago, my neighbor, friend, and photographer, Mike Tully asked me if I wanted get up in the middle of the night, drive for hour then stand around in the freezing cold and wait for the sunrise.

Now, early mornings and I need serious, Middle East peace talk level negotiations in order to even remotely get along. But, we were at a neighborhood party, I had just finished my third beer, so naturally I said, “Sure! Sounds GREAT!”

Then this past Wednesday, Mike called me to remind me. “We’re going to Rockport on Saturday morning to shoot the sunrise. I’ll pick you up at 5:15 AM.”

Great.

So, with coffee in hand and gear in the trunk we set out this morning for Halibut Point State Park in Rockport, MA. It offered a quarry, some ocean views, and of course, we could hit Motif #1 in Rockport on the way out. We did all of that.

The light wasn’t quite what the not-so-acuweather forecasters predicted, but we made the most of it. Our section of Cape Ann was pretty socked in with clouds, but we were both pretty happy with the morning shoot.

I just got home an hour ago and processed a couple of images. This is the first. More to come.

If you do the Facebook thing, be sure to look for Mike and ‘friend’ him. He’s doing some great HDR work.

  1. Lovely departure from the ‘usual’, as it’s something that I can certainly relate to with my beach shot. It’s like, ‘wait, I know there should be some sort of rotting metal or chipped paint somewhere. If I’m not breathing in toxic asbestos, there is a problem’. 🙂

    But, you did a wonderful job here, as always. The little crack of sun is perfection in this otherwise frigid morning.

    My shot for today is a shout out to you, btw. 🙂

  2. Great job capturing the only glimpse of sun for the morning. BTW, don’t be such a wuss about getting up early. A real man wouldn’t whine. He would stay up all night instead. Drinking. Probably single malt scotch.
