Ocean City Sunrise…Sunset

One of the things I most looked forward to while in Ocean City, New Jersey was watching the sunrise over the ocean. Not only was I able to see a few good sunrises I was also able to see a beautiful sunset the night before we returned to Pittsburgh. The sunrise that is in the pictures below ended up better than we expected. Because of the heavy cloud cover, we were afraid that we might not see anything, but after a little patience, the sun came up above the clouds instead of above the horizon and it looked great.

For sunset, we drove over to a pretty much random street near the Longport/Ocean City Bridge to take pictures of the sunsetting over Great Egg Harbor Bay. I hope you enjoy these scenes as much as we did when we witnessed them.

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 9)

Right now I am thrilled to be in Ocean City, New Jersey and even though the weather is a little cool this week, I’m enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean and boardwalk here.
Yesterday, my mom and I woke up early (5:30am) to see the sunrise over the ocean and I actually decided to use my iPhone more than my camera for the shots. I used the HDR feature of my the phone’s camera and I walked out on the beach and got this great shot of the sun rising with the fences zig-zagging on the dunes. It was a beautiful sight. I usually prefer to leave sunrises and sunsets untouched, but I decided to try out the filters and liked the way it came out.
