I've very rarely been out with the camera later in the day since we moved here, but I was yesterday. I set out to make photographs at low tide, and that was late enough in the day that afternoon quickly became evening. The upper photograph is looking east, and the lower one is looking west by a river.

This photograph doesn't begin to capture the reality of the gooey mire that only reveals its true nature when stepped in. With no previous experience, I slogged right into the sticky stuff up to my ankles. When I finally escaped, my sneakers were coated so thickly in it that you couldn't see the laces. I had rubber boots in the car that I didn't think to wear, but if I had, I might not have been able to pull my feet out of the muck without leaving a boot in it. Lesson learned.

After a hurricane, one can expect great turbulence in the sea and sky. The recent Hermine was mostly a Gulf coast storm that left the Atlantic coast alone for the brunt of it. Still, though, even days later, the sky was very active with layers of clouds; some scudding rapidly, and others staying a while. The ocean here is just what it would be after a regular storm at high tide with a breeze, but the scudding and static clouds made the sky quite active. (Film, #15 deep yellow filter)
