Craddock beach sunrise

I was lucky to catch a few moments of yesterday’s rising sun before it disappeared behind the clouds. The wind was chilly but the waves were perfect — lively enough to make things interesting, but not so wild that they sprayed my camera (or me).

I finally bought myself a cheap wired shutter release (the Vello RS-C1II for those who are curious) and this beach outing was the perfect opportunity to try it out. It worked without a hitch and made it so much easier to capture a wave or water-trail shot than using my camera’s self-timer.


The weather of late has not been conducive to photography, but yesterday at least it wasn’t raining. The pup and I took the opportunity to get out for a walk along the beach.

Recent storms and high tides have tossed a lot of driftwood ashore.

(You know what’s fun? Walking along a slippery driftwood log while carrying a tripod in one hand and a camera in the other, and trying not to trip over your dog who, for no apparent reason, has come to a dead stop right in front of you on said log. 🙂 )

This log was sporting a jaunty seagull feather.
