Evening Sand

From 2010 Blog
- The weather was great today so I was thinking that beach season will soon be here. Last August we spent a few days at Cape May New Jersey and this early evening beach scene portrays my favorite time of the day to be on the sand. Maybe I'll get to make a new beach photo this weekend. Canon 40D, 1/400 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400.

245 - Surf's Up

From 365 Project
This surfer caught a good wave at Cape May beach this morning. Good surfing pictures are hard to capture. The action is fast, usually pretty far away and its hard to get the light just right. I was able to capture this image because of the way the jetties are at Cape May. I was standing on the jetty while the surfers were catching the waves in deep section just on the other side. The sunlight was coming over my left shoulder and I had the big zoom. I think it's my best surfing picture yet. Canon 40D, 1/640 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 400, 320mm focal length.

149 - New Egypt

From 365 Project
Nothing like old Egypt - we went to visit the Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey today. It was beautiful country and the vineyard was very relaxing especially in contrast to yesterday's chaotic trip to the Statue of Liberty. Denise gave us a private tour of the whole facility and the wine was great. Canon 40D, 28mm, 1/1600 @ f/5.0, ISO 200.
