Boneyard Beach

This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to view and photograph the sunrise on Boneyard Beach located on Bulls Island.  The north end of the island is eroding and the live oaks and red cedars of the forest are now part of the surf serving as guardians of the beach.

The sky was full of color and absolutely wonderful to see…

Regular Random: Five Minutes with a Bouquet

Desley Jane hosts this challenge each week and the rules are to pick a subject and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting.

I tend to overthink each shot so I’ve always gone over five minutes in my previous attempts.  But these challenges have helped me realize that I can just trust my instincts and for the first time, I’ve gotten several great shots in five minutes.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with the Sun

The rules of this challenge are to pick out an object and photograph it for five minutes only using different lighting and angles. ( I underscored this because I have problems following the time limit.)

Fortunately we have missed out on the worst of Hurricane Irma but we are still experiencing a lot of rain and wind gusts up to 50 – 55 miles per hour and losing power off and on.  Hurricane Matthew last year was enough for us, thank you very much!  Anyway, there’s no sun today so I decided to make my own.

I love suns and have one in just about every room of the house.  This one sits in my hall and I pulled it out in front of the window to get what light I could.

Thanks to Desley Jane for hosting.  You can find her post here:  https://musingsofafrequentflyingscientist.com/2017/09/10/five-minutes-with-chocolate-cake-regularrandom/
