I left the house early this morning because I could see the moon and stars along with some scattered clouds to the east. That combination should make for a beautiful sunrise and I wanted to be in place to capture it. So I walked a little over two and a half miles to the cemetery above Ebey Prairie. From there you look east to the sunrise. I got there about 7:20 am and the official sunrise is 7:35 am, perfect!
The only problem is that it never happened. It clouded up and there was no sun to be seen. So what to do? I know, set up the tripod and take a bunch of cloudy photos over the Ebey Prairie. I’m happy with the results and I hope you like them as well.
I’ll start with a big panorama overlooking almost the entire prairie. Click on the photo for a bigger view.
This is what I got looking straight toward the “sunrise” at 7:35. Off in the distance is the Ferry House built in 1860. It was a stopping place for people coming across Admiralty Inlet going to Coupeville. If you look closely you’ll see what appears to be a large bird sitting just above the top branch near the center of the tree on the right.
Here’s a close up of the “Bird”! Turns out it’s a broke tree branch but looks pretty convincing.
On the way back home I thought this red barn looked nice in the grayness of the morning.
The last shot on my way home was looking up this treed sidewalk leading up to one of the historic homes out on the prairie.
So there ya go, another wonderful walk with you and all my other virtual friends. Thanks a bunch of joining me and with any luck we’ll do it again tomorrow.
