Dolphins in the Evening

The hound decided that we should take our walks in the evening on this trip. Apparently the early morning walks while we are out of town have lost their shine. Can't say I am unhappy about that, especially when I get nice images like this.

Dolphins at Sunrise

This morning The Hound decided it was time to implement her morning vacation walks. This one was particularly early as you can see. She must know I love the morning light, but I am unlikely to see it without a little prodding.

Playing with Dolphins

I'm not totally sure if she was reaching up to hug the dolphin, or she was imagining it jumping through her arms. I think it was the latter. Either way, I can thank my hound dog for the opportunity to capture this scene. I would have slept in if not for the fact that she was in the mood for an uncharacteristic early morning walk.

Dolphins at the Wharf

I really like the water in this image. The long exposure hid the fact that the water was moving pretty well in the fountain. If you look closely you can see where the drops of water leave the edge of the fountain and hit the pool below. But they disappear in between. The surface of the water was covered with ripples which caused the blurred surface as opposed to a smooth reflective surface of a less agitated pool at night.

In the Cannery District in Monterey there is a beautiful fountain. It is a sculpture of several dolphins leaping in the air. This is the pool around the fountain. You can see the silhouette of the dolphins reflected in the pool.

I like the fact that this exposure was long enough to get the red, green and amber lights on the traffic signal. The people were waiting for an evening tour bus so they were there long enough to be visible in the photo.

Dolphin Fountain at Sunset

I have always liked taking pictures at sunset. Aside from the interesting shadows, the colors are much more intense. Lately I have been waiting 'til later in the evening to explore the glow of the lights along with the final light of the day.
