Scout

“Scout” (Seagull) Nikon D300, 550mm (200-400mm w/1.4x teleconverter), F/10, 1/320s, -0.7EV, ISO 640

 
As I was leaving the beach on that bitter day last week, I stopped to snap a few shots of a seagull who was very intently watching the water. It was so cold that my fingers could barely work the shutter and I figured the images would be useless.

Believe or not, I shot this in color, vivid color, but since the sun had tucked behind a cloud, all the tones were instantly muted. And if I had thought anything about it at the time (and I wasn’t so damn cold), I certainly would have made certain my horizontals were indeed horizontal

But seeing how the angles play off each other, now I’m glad I didn’t! 🙂

You know it’s cold when the stream freezes!

"Stone Cold" (Frozen Stream With Rocks) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/8, 1/30s, +.3EV, ISO 640

I can’t decide if I see an image in the ice…do you?

Proof our day started off sunny

It didn’t last. 😦

Just before it began to snow (again) yesterday, I went over to Lynch Park to check out the surf.

As the tide rolled in, it was amazing to see the ocean undulating from relatively calm to thunderous booms! as walls of water pounded against the rocks. I have to admit, on more than one occasion, I needed to retreat or else be caught in the sea’s fury! 🙂
