Beach trip again

 I had the privilege of going a beach trip last week to Carolina Beach to get photographs of coastal birds, the beach, sunrises, sunsets and the moon rise which was cool to photograph at the beach.

This is a seagull that is eating a fish that he dragged along the beach which i got several photographs of this seagull eating this fish and sometimes he threw it in the air , which was cool to see and photograph it. It was very cool to witness and photograph this as it was happening. The photographs of the seagull eating the fish came out awesome .

The next shore bird I photographed was a sanderling trying to find something for him to eat or catch. It was hard to catch this sanderlings at first because the move so darn fast near the shore of the ocean. I kept looking for movement and starting tracking down the movement and catching the sanderlings doing many different things on the beach.

This another variety of a sandpiper which I am trying to identify. It was near the shore a lot. So if you have any clues what kind of sandpiper this might be let me know.

The last photograph I did at the beach during that day was a moonrise that I photographed over the ocean I have not done this kind of photograph in a long time at carolina Beach.. Otherwise I had a great beach trip photographing different things on the beach and had a wonderful vacation.

Foggy weather

Yesterday afternoon, I got the chance to chase some fog photos, which my crazy mentor Al D had to work instead of chasing the photo opportunities to get photos of the fog. 

When I got off work yesterday, I had noticed that there was dense fog advisory for our area and decided to take action and get out to take photographs of it.Yesterday afternoon the humidity was at 100% and it was very interesting to photograph the fog after and in between rain storms which I did. I think Al D needs to get his stuff together and do better at his fog photography and capture what I did.

I spotted of pair of mallard ducks yesterday and decided to photograph them with the fog. I have previously have done geese shots with the fog but this time it was a pair of mallard ducks .
The fog was very dense and I enjoyed walking and taking photos of it and of course I get to make fun of my mento today since he did not get any fog pictures.  Too Bad Al D!!  But I did.. So you get to be made fun of on my blog.
