Sunrise to Sunset

Once in a great while I am up before sunrise, and I usually take advantage of the situation by heading out for some pics:


This evening we were heading out to Navarre and I made the wife-to-be pull over so that I could take this picture of the sunset:

Early Riser

I got up early today, so I ran out to get a few shots of the sunrise. It looks like another Red Flag day on Pensacola Beach! Enjoy your day!

A Glimpse of Sunshine

I was up early on Thursday morning of this week and captured the sun peeking through the clouds. The lighting was surreal, so I ran back to the house to grab my camera. Made it back just in time before the clouds covered up the sun for the rest of the morning.

Sometimes you’ve just gotta be in the right place at the right time. Turning west, I could see nothing but overcast skies approaching:

Early morning construction

I’ve been taking some pictures from some friends (and soon to be neighbors) from Minnesota of the house they have going up across from my place. I came across this photo while I was looking for photos to send, and I’m not sure why I hadn’t noticed it before. This was taken about a month ago just before sunrise, and the colors are amazing.

Since we’ve only had fog around here (and high temps!), I thought this picture was worthy of a Pensacola Beach Blogger post!

A misty morning

Another foggy and misty morning here on Pensacola Beach! We should have a beautiful day on our hands today… as soon as the sun makes it out of the fog.

September Sunrise

This morning I was up early enough to catch the sunrise on Pensacola Beach. In fact I was up before the sunrise:

At 6:30am this morning, you can still see the moon at the top of this picture.  It was a very peaceful time to be out on the beach, but the sand was kind of chilly. The Gulf, however, was very warm. It felt great to walk on the warm sand down by the water.

Here comes the sun:

There were plenty of pelicans out, ready to “obstruct” my shot:

Sun is up. Time to head back and make some coffee!


Hurricane Ike is flooding my neighborhood

Hurricane Ike is causing some high tides and flooding over in my neighborhood on Pensacola Beach, the sound-side in particular. I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise:

But water rushing down the street is never a good sign:

Looks like the Gulf is coming over the dunes! Not a good thing for our expected turtle hatchlings on Pensacola Beach.

In fact, I found this screen covering used to keep crabs out of the turtle nests. I’ll be sure to let Barrier Island Girl and Traveling Turtle Girl know.

The Santa Rosa sound is rising:

And it is causing plenty of problems for my neighbors on the sound-side of the island:

I took many more pictures down at the pier this morning… I’ll have them up shortly!


Pensacola Beach Morning

It was a lovely morning on Pensacola Beach today…

The water was almost completely still!

Pure white sand, and emerald green water

When the water is this still, you notice all of the movements of the sea life:

What a great morning! Now that I caught the sunrise, its back to bed for me!
