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 10)

Last week’s photo of the week was a sunrise and this week’s is a sunset picture. This was taken the last night we were in Ocean City on the bayside of the island. I didn’t take many pictures with my phone in the last week so this one won the best picture I took with my phone over the week.

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 7)

This past week has been a little crazy for me. Today is the last day of class and I worked a game for the last time this semester on Sunday. Friday (4/25) greeted us with rain, but the rain subsided in time for the 7pm baseball game. Because of the clouds, I knew there would be a good opportunity for a picture during the game so I patiently waited by the patio at the stadium waiting for the opportunity to arrive.Β  Continue reading iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 7)

Lynchburg Sunsets

Lynchburg, Virginia is the home of my college, Liberty University, as well as home to the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen in my life. A combination of the mountains (or hills as people in the Rockies would probably claim) and the cloud conditions make for some of the most colorful sunsets imaginable. One of those such sunsets occurred during Liberty University’s baseball game against Virginia Military Institute.

Here is the first pano that I captured when I first noticed the sunset…

Below is a gallery of some other sunsets I’ve captured during my time at Liberty.

Intramural Sports

At Liberty University, there are lots of intramural sport options, from ultimate frisbee to dodgeball, football and basketball, and even broomball, there are lots of options for students to compete or just have fun. My best friend, Brady, decided to play intramural softball this semester and invited Ashley and I to his first game today. Ashley brought her camera and, since she isn’t a huge sports fan, let me take some pictures.

The fields where intramural softball fields are halfway up one of the mountains (or hills) that surround Liberty’s campus so there was a great view of the sunset from the game. Here are some of the pictures I was able to get of the action and of the sky.

iPhone Photo(s) of the Week (Week 2)

It has been a busy week so I haven’t taken too many pictures with my phone this week, but I’ll make the most of what I have. Last night was the Liberty Women’s Lacrosse team’s home opener against Elon University. The Lady Flames pulled out a 13-9 victory over Elon and, as usual, the Lynchburg sunset was beautiful. So, for this week’s pictures of the week, I have two panoramas that I took during the game. The first is taken of the field or play while the second is a view from the field towards the rest of the campus. Because of the fast shutter speed, the picture is a little dark, but captures the colors of the sky over the mountains and gives a little bit of a silhouette of the main campus.
