I’ve had a burning desire (not sensation, it’s not a gold bond commercial) to visit Plum Island at Day Break. In July, I said – Yes. I am going to do this, go at daybreak and watch the sun rise in the East. The alarm rang. I woke. I shut off the alarm I went back to bed.
Yesterday, the desire returned. I set the alarm clock. The alarm rang. I woke. I shut off the alarm, and moved to the couch. I shook myself awake, and grabbed my gear. I walked out and drove to Plum Island. One should know it is easier to wake for daybreak when it is at 7:23 in the morning! Not 5:23.
I drove through the Iron Box attendant; I paid a little extra with the fee and went about my business. I drove the steady 25 mph until I reached the Hellcat Swamp. I walked up to the top of the boardwalk and the dune. The view was spectacular, as well as the cold and wind.
I spent the next few hours walking around capturing views of the dunes, ocean, Cranes Beach, Sandy Point Reservation, Birds and the amazing flora and fauna.
I ended my photography after more than 400 snaps. I played with the Sun and the Depth of Field. I so enjoyed every minute of the walk(s).
