Saturday I went for a walk at the air force base and used my phone* to photograph what I saw.
This rainbow lasted a solid two hours because of the afternoon sunlight and the light rain in the distance. There was some mistiness where I was, but nothing that affected me.
The tulip poplars are falling…
The tide was lower than I’ve ever seen it. A submarine went by in the channel, but looked like I could have walked to it.
This is where I usually have a view of the ships with water (and mangroves) in front of them.
A spot of bright white in a sea of murk and gray.
For the first time, I was able to walk all the way to those mangroves.
Fragments of purple on the exposed sand gave evidence of urchins.
In a tide pool there were more, but nothing alive except for some very tiny fish. I’m sure everything moved into deeper water as the tide receded.
As the sun sank toward the horizon, even the tiny things cast long shadows that gave them an illusion of significance.
*Bear with me if the quality isn’t always as great as it could be, but I didn’t want to haul my big camera with me.
