Rehoboth Dayspring: A Photo Story

There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself,  for what we see is what we are.” - Ernst Haas

Who doesn't enjoy watching and listening to the waves crash against the jetty? Even a gentle surf becomes something special and powerful when it has something immovable to break against. The amazing colors in the predawn sky make a spectacular backdrop for the blues and white highlights in the wave curls and jetty spray. Although it requires an early morning wakeup, a fair amount of preparation, and a wee bit of luck to capture an image like this, I find the experience gratifying even I never get to release the shutter. As I wrote on December 19, 2020...

It’s mornings like this one that make my efforts as a photographer so filled with joy. The clouds at the horizon helped pump a lot of creamy color in the sunrise sky while my longer shutter speed helped smooth the surf while still capturing the wave break. So despite the East breeze chilling my fingertips and threatening my tripod, I knew the image could be worth it. I hope ‘Rehoboth Dayspring’ gives you as much joy in the viewing as I take in the sharing.
