While out walking the dogs on Friday I was amazed by the way the sun played off the water. I took this shot and although it looks like it might be a rain storm coming it was not. These are clouds formed by the tropical moisture in the Gulf. If they do form rain clouds, they dump the rain further inland later in the day. This shot is at about 8:30 in the morning and this is looking North East.
This next photo is one I captured the same day only later. I took it because this freighter moving through the Corpus Christi Channel had to be the ugliest one I have seen for a while. Here is what I mean.
To the left is a ferry getting ready to make a crossing. This long view doesn’t give you the correct picture. Here is a closer look.
Check this thing out. I also took a shot of a ferry starting across the channel after the freighter passed. (The freighter is still ugly)
Finally, to redeem myself, I took a shot toward the entrance of the channel where it meets the Gulf. (This is where the freighter entered.) I will confess I normally have my producer with me on these shoots and this time I was running solo. My solo act may be the last time I try that maneuver.
If you look close, you can see a guy fishing off the sea wall. Next week will be better.
