When I was in Cape May in October, I photographed several sunrises and sunsets. They were breathtakingly colorful and beautiful. I processed some of those images after returning from Cape May, but not all of them. Yesterday evening, I processed a couple more that caught my attention and that I thought were representative of what I experienced.
As I was enjoying and photographing the sunset across Delaware Bay, I noticed the Cape May ferry on the horizon. In the above image, I captured the ferry as it was right below the setting sun creating an interesting and unique composition. Unique for me, but probably one that happens daily.
In the above image, the ferry had moved out of the frame; the sun continued to sink below the horizon; and the brilliant colors in the sky from the setting sun were reflected in the wet sand. Not every evening produces such beautiful sunsets, but when the conditions are right it can be spectacular. Unfortunately, my memory does not due justice to such sunsets, but these images refresh it enabling me to appreciate them again.
I hope to capture similar images this weekend at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware. According to the current weather report, the conditions look perfect for a productive and rewarding photography weekend.
