The temperature is dropping and the rain is falling.
There is snow to the north but we all know it wouldn’t dare snow on Cape Cod.
2017 is coming to a close. On this blog I have, with varying degrees of frequency, chronicled my time with nature.
In past years I have made calendars from my photos which I shared with family and friends over the holidays. This year I broadened the scope and have been pleased with the amount of interest.
As the days remaining in this year dwindle to a precious few, so are the number of available calendars.
Rather than venturing out in the wind and rain, I will make this offer available to you this afternoon. 2018 Cape Cod Wall Calendar
The Chatham Fish Pier has become one of my favorite spots to take pics. After a weekend of clouds prevented me from seeing the Super moon I had my chance tonight. And I wasn’t going to waste it by going anywhere else but Chatham. The waning gibbous rising moon.
Over the next few days I will be looking for the moon. Tonight the moon rose at about 96% illumination and tomorrow night it will be over 99%. The moon rises at 3:54 p.m. on Saturday and 4:42 p.m on Sunday. It sets at 5:13 a.m. Saturday and 6:36 a.m. on Sunday.
At 10:23 a.m. Sunday, the moon will be full.
There will be some clouds around all weekend.
Feeling so grateful to be able to take in this beauty with my morning coffee today.
These photos are of Cape Cod Bay taken from Long Beach, Plymouth.
It was the coldest morning I have been out with a camera since early March.
Yesterday was the coldest day since late winter. The wind was strong and seemed to go right through you.
But it was these same winds, I imagine, that gave such unique shapes and textures to the clouds in the southwest sky.
As the sun was setting tonight there was a heavy cloud cover except for along the western horizon.
It felt other worldly to be standing in the dark with the only light source in front not above me.
