A Sunday morning sunrise

It was one of those beautiful mornings and I could not resist, at the risk of getting boring, showing a few more seaside views.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. These are beautiful. No worries about being boring! At all!

    I love these misty shots – nothing the tiniest bit boring about any of them. And I don’t ever seem to get tired of seaside views. I especially like the 3rd and 4th ones.

    • Hi ehpem, Thank you. On the 4th image I noticed the title as OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA. I dislike running someones advertising (like NIKE painted on your forehead) so, as a rule I remove that banner, but it does mean that the image is straight from the camera. As soon as the photo is photoshopped that title is gone. On pict #3 the contrast needed tweaking in PS ever so slightly and this is the result.

    • Thank you so much. On a beautiful morning, like this one was, the estuary and seaside here are the very best for casual walks, or even short hikes. Unbeknownst to me the camera’s battery was dead. I took about 10 photos that morning, but that was alright. On a Sunday morning walk the camera really becomes of secondary importance.

  3. There not boring Joseph, the 3rd one down is magical

    • Thank you Carl, those morning mists around here can be quite spectacular, especially when lit up by that cloud filtered early morning sun. By the way (tong in cheek) if I really thought they were boring these photographs would never have made it onto these pages. Just fishing for compliments LOL. Mind you I do have concerns about possible repetitiveness in this blog.

    Oh my, not boring at all! Stunning actually 🙂 Love the 4th one.
    The Olympus Camera has me confused…..please don’t tell me you just use a point and shoot!!

    • Thank you Madhu. I guess the photo title is an Olympus way of advertising, Olympus pen micro 4/3 system that is. Mirrorless with lots of lenses available, especially since all 4/3 system lenses are interchangeable. So lenses from the Panasonic 4/3s, and consequently some Leica lenses may be used etc. Not professional but a much lighter and smaller alternative to the big guns, with excellent sensors.

    Getting bored?? Never ever! Your photos are stunning 😀

    • Thank you. So good to hear from you Wolke, I really was worried about repetitiveness in the blog, but mostly what we have here in my little pocket of the world is seaside, so seaside photographs tend to creep in over and over again.

        No worries Joseph, no picture is like the other, so I can look at 100 seaside photos in a row without getting bored. You create the best photos of what you have there (landscape, nature and so) – that s all that matters 🙂

  6. Lovely shots. I’ve never lived anywhere close to the sea but I miss it so much when I see images like this.

    • Thank you Debra for your kind comment. The seaside has one thing about it and that is its constant light changes. It makes for different scenery more often than any scenery type I can think of. Mind you, looking at your G+ profile, I would not mind, just now, being in Stockport or Macclesfield with camera and a cheese pasty (hot and fresh) in my hands.

  7. The sea is never boring! Joseph, that 3rd image is wonderfully moody and gorgeous.
    Definitely worth heading outside for. I wish I could pop down to the sea each morning…
