Each day as it comes…

Photoblog: Perfect Sunday morning dawn : Jan 22nd

Took a little longer on my walk as it was such a lovely morning.

For the first time this year the weather was warm and the ocean clear from the off, which meant the beach was soon busy with sun worshippers of every kind!

Have fun with it. The beach is back…

Photoblog : The weekend begins with a fine Friday sunrise : Jan 20th

Such a lovely bright morning again – the weekend is shaping up to be very beautiful. The morning was a little chillier than the last few, but the atmosphere was very relaxed. Another day in paradise…

Set dedicated to the folks at Iphoneography Miami Exhibition at the ArtSpace Gallery I met at the opening yesterday. A great exhibition of the some of the world’s finest iPhone art prints. Has to be seen to be believed!

Photoblog : A bright bright morning sun : Jan 19th

A dawning that began with a big thick band of clouds over the horizon, which meant for a gray start to the morning walk.

The clouds slowly evaporated in the sunlight, so when the sun finally showed its face the light was big bright and beautiful.

Within half an hour the clouds had given up the skies, leaving us with another wonderfully bright Januray day..

The dunes, grainy and colorful.

Silver gray by the dune palms.

Sun peeps under the clouds just for a moment.

Photoblog : The bright light of the morning : Jan 18th

One more day of dramatic clouds, on a morning that preludes a beautiful day. There was a deep band of cloud at the shoreline which headed slowly north, clearing and fading into a clear bright January morning.

The warmth of a winter morn : Jan 17th

A January morning that was all about the clouds. At first it didn’t look like there were many around and the morning would be bright and clear.

Yet slowly the clouds gathered, as if the sun’s appearance was a cue for a little cloudplay.

Early light, palm trees.


Old gold dawning.

Sleepy dawn over a moody ocean.

And dawn’s clouds begin to clear : Jan 16th

The wind from the ocean was still busy and the temperature early on felt cool. From a photography point of view though the clouds bring a little drama to the scene, and as the dawn developed sunlight streamed through onto the beach.

Photoblog : Sunday’s beautiful dawn colors : Jan 15th

A cool morning here in South Florida and a beautiful pre-dawn light show low on the horizon.

To arrive at the beach to see such an ever changing sunrise emerging from behind the beach palms more than made up for the drop in temperature. It was a clear, clean and gorgeous start to the day, perfect for photography.

Reds, peaches oranges and yellows along the horizon.

Photoblog : A chilled out morning at the shore : Jan 14th

More clouds this morning threatening to overshadow the sunrise, and sure enough it took time to finally break through to warm this chilly morning.

Low tide brought calm waves and a band of beautiful seashells along the soft shore sands.

The sunrise eventually settled down into a dreamy haze, with long strands of altostratus clouds to create light and shade.

Photoblog : Friday on my Mind : Jan 13th

Low cloud this morning and a strong sun to create deep colors low along the horizon.  Gradually those clouds faded to leave a canopy of altocumulus for the sunlight to dapple through. So lovely.

Photoblog : Cool, calm and collected at sunrise : Jan 12th

Another beautifully serene start to the day, with a calm ocean and a hazy horizon for the sun to break through.

A day to take one’s time and take it all in. A quiet, contemplative dawning.
