Okay, yesterday I published Thinking of Mexico. Today we had our first snowfall in Pittsburgh and a little more than expected. So if you were stuck in traffic or fell on the ice…my bad. To make up for It I will share a winter picture from a few years ago. Hopefully, this will bring warmer weather?
I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am focusing on images that are scenic in nature. This was taken in Milan Italy in 2011. It is the largest canal in the city of Milan and lined with restaurants, clubs and antique store.
We stayed for one month on Sunset Beach, a small residential community in Treasure Island Florida. On every clear evening people gathered to watch the sunset, surf or stroll on the beach during the magic hour.
Gulf Boulevard runs along the Gulf of Mexico before it turns into Blind Pass at St. Petersburgh Beach. After a while it begins again and runs towards the end of the St. Petersburg peninsula. Where it turns into Blind Pass in Treasure Island there is a small spur called Gulf Boulevard West that runs along the Gulf before it ends at Boca Ciega Bay.
This sour is known as Sunset Beach and is a small community within Treasure Island.It is a tranquil Gulf community that is mostly residential with only two restaurants/bars and few other businesses. When the sun sets people come out on their decks and stroll along the beach. It is not crowded but as the sun falls into the Gulf you can hear cheers and applause along the beach.
Every night the sunsets at the beach would bring something a little different. On windy nights the surfers were out and the whipping wind provided photographic challenges. But calm nights would bring out the long-boarders and gentle sea breezes made for a pleasant relaxing photographic experience on Sunset Beach.
Twice in my life I did the drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco along the Pacific Coast Highway. Once in 1968 by myself and once in the late 1990’s with my family. What was amazing is how little the area of Big Sur had changed in the thirty years between drives. It is still to this day a rugged and scenic area of unsurpassed beauty. I hope to make the drive at least once more in my lifetime. This picture was taken in the mid 1990’s about 100 miles south of Carmel California.
If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.
Moonlit waterfalls are beautiful wether they exist in nature or are created. The moon is from our back yard, the waterfall is part of Bushkill Falls about twenty miles away.
