towering

Here are three shots of the submarine observation post I showed you here; these are why I got up early.  A contribution to Orange you glad it’s Friday #101

Nothing too special about this one, except for the tiny sliver of moon.

A more interesting landscape of the sun peeking over the clouds at sunrise.  I like this one a bunch, but I always save my favorite for last.

This is the shot I planned and it came out *way* better that I originally envisioned.  Thanks to a bit of post-processing color saturation, I was able to get a nice purple hue to the sky.  I think this one is killer.  I’m going to print this one, probably on metal.

    I agree you saved the best for last. Great shots!

  4. I like the moon a lot and the surprise gets better and better! It’s strange for me to see the rising sun on the ocean because it sets on the sea here! 🙂

    Very interesting variations on a theme. I agree – the last one was best.

Click on it to embiggen.  I hope it gives you a sense of the size of the salt marshes. The two vertical columns to the right of center are submarine observation towers from WWI, featured here. […]
