Day 115 of SP… Great temps on Snady Beach, looking at what appears to be swirling ocean mist.. Minot Light house to the left.. a very nice SP morning.
SWIRLING ATLANTIC PHANTOMS
I set up on Sandy Beach for the Sunrise Project and as the sun was rising I noticed what appeared to be swirling ocean mist and it was moving, slowly… I reached a little further with the 300mm lens, focused and hit the shutter release for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th times… The swirling Atlantic phantom continued; moving in a northerly direction, towards rising sun.. I was hooked, wondering what it was; an optical illusion perhaps.. but it moves….Maybe the left-over exhaust from a large ocean-going vessel’s stack… but it’s not dispersing..yep, I was hooked…I set timer and fired once more as I watched its meandering progress.. What ever it was it brought back great memories. Memories of Arizona; backpacking with friends in desert sands… camp set.. banter flowing…beer in hand….watching dust-devils swirl on desert-ocean floor.
