Day 200…Sunset & Storm Clouds

Welcome to day 200 of  365 photos…I went out tonight in hopes of the sun setting on a certain building in Cedar Point but it was not to be. However, as we drove toward Swansboro, the sky started to glow so we pulled into the Cedar Point boat ramp. The sky was awesome with black storm clouds and the setting sun. It is one of those nights where the sunset just takes your breath away. I sat there watching until the storm finally made it to me with a crash of thunder and the rain started to fall.

Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.

Day 199…Beach Fun

Welcome to day 199 of  365 photos…what better place to have fun in the sun than at the beach! It is HOT and muggy here at the Crystal Coast so what better place to go to have fun than to the beach. I love to watch the kids playing in the water. One little fella tried to jump every time a wave came in but his feet never left the ground – he would actually just move his upper body taller. :-) So funny! Adults enjoy the beach too. That appears to be an older gentleman flying the kite. There is always someone taking cell phone photos to send back home to their friends that aren’t at the beach. Everyone seemed to be having a great time and I think that I should have at least dipped my toes in the water. What do you think?

Down the beach

Hazy, hot & humid. Almost looks like fog looking this way down the beach.

Day 198…White Ibis

Welcome to day 198 of  365 photos…this White Ibis was way up in the top of a dead tree. Sky was not very pretty but I like the wingspread when it took off. Day 198 - 365 Project - IbisCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 80-400mm

From allaboutbirds.org: “A wading bird of the deep South, the striking White Ibis is frequently seen on lawns looking for large insects as well as probing for prey along the shoreline.

Day 197…Salty Air Open Market

Welcome to day 197 of  365 photos…the Salty Air Open Market was open today so Mr. B and I took a walk through to see what they had. This market is reminiscent of the markets that we find in Florida. It is a great place for a wide variety of folks to sell their wares. There’s fresh fish and shrimp, veggies, stained glass, photographs and so much more. There are food booths and even live music. What fun!! I took a few photos while there, of course.

You may remember this old van that I posted a photo of earlier this year when the flowers had just been planted. This is what it looks like now with the flowers in bloom.

Those that know me, know how much I love yellows and greens.Day 197 - 365 Project - SunflowerCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 80-400mm

I love glass things too and these wine bottles were really awesome. The ones pictured are wind chimes and the bottles were blowing in the wind when I snapped the photo. They had also made candle holders and bird feeders out of the bottles. Amazing what folks do with wine bottles these days.etched wine bottle wind chimesIf you are ever in Cedar Point, NC on a summer weekend, be sure to stop by Salty Air Open Market. You never know what you may find.
