More Plane over the Moon stuff.

Unlike last month’s silhouette image of a jet in front of the moon, tonight’s was taken with the sun still illuminating the plane. DSC_0949

The result was pretty much what I was looking for, but… I like the first one better, as in it, the moon was not ‘reddened’ by the setting sun, making the jet black plane a bit more dramatic. Note the exhaust blurring the lunar edge in the above image.

Before Summer Goes…. A Look-Back at the Beginning

Island Beach State Park, New Jersey – June 22, 2015

6:57 AM: Walking barefoot along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

Morning, in an area accessed by the “Fisherman’s Walk.”

A few feet away and seconds later, this polished gem looks like a stylized hovercraft from “Star Wars.”

“Fisherman’s Walk” offers an exceptional experience,  traversing a quarter mile (~400 m) of native fauna and wind-swept dunes between Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

6:59 AM: The sand holds near infinite treasures.

And the early morning anglers compete with the Osprey and other sea birds to feed themselves, their waiting offspring and maybe even “bragging rights.”
