…sometimes, they just seem to burn.
There were some interesting clouds tonite:
And, finally, a small story: about a week ago, sunshine and I were out walking in the rain (altho it had stopped before we got out the door), and we found the tide very low. And we spied this poor asshole, moored on the very prominent sand of Dog Beach:
Of course, as soon as we saw this, I had to walk over to get a better look and prod whoever had done it. There were a couple of lifeguard trucks pointing their headlights at it, so I wandered over there. As I got closer, I noticed there were a couple of guys standing next to the truck. I got up next to to the closest of the pair, and looking at the boat, said “Is it just a matter of waiting for the tide to come in?”
He turned and looked blearily at me and said “The coast guard has been called, but they haven’t responded.”
I nodded sagely, and I guess I was smirking, because he gave me another look and said “This isn’t funny!”
I slowly walked away, and went back home to get my camera and tripod. It was a challenge getting the damn thing, because it was being rocked by the waves and the exposure needed to be long in this low, nighttime light (lookit the left-most flag). The above photo is the only one of the group that’s even vaguely in focus.
I fear Daylight Savings Time. I haven’t gotten nearly enough shooting in this year. Hmm. Been doin’ lots of printing, tho.
