Welcome to day 258 of 365 photos…it was a foggy day today. Last night we had this beautiful red sky at sunset and I thought today would be sunny and bright. That was not to be – we had the second foggy, rainy day in a row. Showers prevailed. This was the sky last night. Pretty, huh?I needed to go to Walmart in Morehead City so I headed that way around noon when I finally gave up on the idea that the weather would improve. When all else fail, head for Walmart! 🙂 On the way to MC, there is a large housing development that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. Only the front part of it is developed right now and besides the ponds that line the roads, there is a neat bridge that goes across a marshy area. I drive though this housing development almost every time that I go to MC just to see what birds are around. Today, the only thing I saw was an egret out in the fog. I did see a king fisher but it did not come close enough for a photo.Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 18-300mm
Focal Length: 85mm – Aperture: f/6.3 – Shutter Speed: 1/500 second – ISO: 250
On the way home, I decided to see how the flowers looked next to the EI bridge. Do you remember last May when I showed you the pretty roadside flowers as you came onto the bridge. Click HERE to see what it looked like then. The flowers are back for the fall but they are yellow and orange instead of the purple, white and red of the spring. I pulled into the visitor’s center where I could easily walk down the pathway to get a photo. The yellow and orange flowers are so cheery. They bring cheer even on on a foggy, rainy day. Don’t you think so?Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. 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.
