Late summer is a time of reflection. On life, on time, and on the other things that reflect past, present, and future. We age and the clock moves faster still, yet nothing gives the arrow of time pause like a slow sunset burn. If only for a few moments all takes a pause and we exist as one.
Cedar Run Dock Road Photographs
Here's my complete archive of Cedar Run Dock Road photography. Jutting southeastward the meandering Dock Road features 360 degrees of salt marsh views. Serene and expansive it has for decades been a favorite diversion only minutes from my house. In recent years it's become my most frequented spot for making sunset photographs. Some of my favorite Dock Rod shots include A Marsh Life, Still the Sirens Call, and The path before me.
How about a little summertime partner yoga on the salt marsh? Check in as I photograph yogis Rose Dease and Adam Binder doing partner yoga atop Aperion Yoga’s Twilight Blush yoga mat. Look on as they work asana magic astride the double yellow lines of Cedar Run Dock Road in downward-facing dog and an L-shaped handstand.
Summer sunsets on the salt marsh. Does it get better? I invite you to come along with me as I share with you a summer stunner as the sun set upon the Cedar Run Dock Road marsh at its absolute peak. It’s moments like this that make me love being a landscape photographer.
When stillness, pastels, and glassy reflections meet at the salt marsh you can breathe it all in and smile inside because summer is here. Let your eyes gaze upon the calming oxbow feature framed by swaying marsh grasses and hum your favorite song. Placid moments are the spice of life.
A sublime pastel sunset over late June salt marsh has me questioning my own assumptions. Where has the green marsh gone? As sunset light reflects upon the marsh, I, too, reflect on if what I thought knew was true. Despite seeing the same place over and over for years you can “observe a lot by watching.” Thanks, Yogi.
Windswept marsh bows low as the sustained winds usher in from the northeast. Brooding gray clouds dominate the sky, but they do little to pushback the energy infusion coursing through a marsh reborn. It all comes together to make a striking salt marsh photograph made late in the day at Cedar Run Dock Road.
Get low. You will come across this command often in your development as a shooter. It is especially common for us plying our trade in the landscape photography niche. Get low. Get the shot. Get the viewer in. Throwing a quick and dirty best guess out into the universe, I would ballpark I make some […]
Look upon a sunset. A dramatic end to a day well lived. No two sunsets are the same, unique and personal as is each lived existence. So, too, is it for our heroes that sacrificed all. An early setting of life sacrificed in the most glorious of terms. Sanguine colors of blood and sacrifice to ensure beauty and peace in all our sunsets to come.
Making time to visit nature and take it all in reduces stress and restores the soul. It’s made better when you capture the drama of a perfect salt marsh sunset coupled with newborn marsh grass, storm clouds, and anticrepuscular rays. It’s better still when it’s your first sunset photographs in months.
