Clouds Over The Bay by Adele Downs #photography

I snapped this photo of these amazing clouds, covering the sky as far as I could see, with my iPhone7, while sipping a margarita on the porch of my little summer house on the bay. I’m so glad I tilted my head back and looked up! One never knows when something special will appear.

Mornings By The Bay: Birds and Water Fowl

This morning I watched a robin hop around our yard with a worm in its beak before it flew into a bush to feed its chicks. Birds seem to be everywhere at the beach and on the bay, co-existing with us humans and sharing the water, sun and sand.

This mama bird protects her nest high above a Delaware boardwalk beside the Atlantic Ocean. I needed my telephoto lens to capture this shot.

On the dock by our summer home just before twilight, this seagull sentry attempted to keep me from approaching the rest of the flock. I respected his wishes and kept my distance, though I took advantage of his pose with my Fuji digital camera.

As the sun went down, seagulls gathered on the next dock, and ducks and geese joined the party.

The seagulls have the beach to themselves during the off season.

Mornings By The Bay: New Season at the Beach

Springtime for my husband and me means more visits to our little piece of heaven. Though we visit our vacation home year round, April’s warm-up marks the beginning of our personal beach season. After a dreary few months of winter cold, snow and rain, we’re excited to enjoy sunshine, our bay views, and walks by the ocean. We’d planned, saved and searched for the right opportunity for many years to fulfill our beach house dream, and we treasure every day by the water.

Here are pictures I took on the dock, just before sunset, with my Fuji digital camera. Pictures are unretouched, shown exactly as nature intended.
