The Shadows Are Getting Longer On Cape Cod!

261 views

I was biking across the salt marsh a couple of days ago when I looked out and saw my shadow on my bike. It was very long on the salt marsh. I stopped and thought that it might make a cool photograph. So I got my iPhone and took one.

When I looked at it, I thought that something was wrong. I was facing the wrong way. You don’t ride a bike with your body facing sideways. So I maneuvered my camera while facing forward and this is what I got.

Fun, don’t you think?

And then I figured you’d get a good laugh when you saw my first one. Ha!

It’s a lot darker in the morning than  it was a few weeks ago, so I have to adjust my bike riding time a bit and leave a bit later. I was crossing the salt marsh about 6:30 and I just had to stop and take a few photographs. It was just spectacular!

I edited them a couple of different ways. Which one do you like better?

I was walking home from the beach and had just crossed the bridge across the salt marsh when I heard some laughing. I looked out onto th marsh and it looked like there was a flock of Laughing Gulls  having a party,  flying in and out and just laughing.

Have you ever heard a Laughing Gull? Besides being funny, they are really a beautiful bird. I love their black heads. What do you think?

The days are getting a little shorter, so it is a little darker when I go on my morning bike ride. I have to leave at 6:15, instead of 6:00. As I rode over the salt marsh, the sunrise to the east was just gorgeous!

It’s been so hot, it even looks a bit hazy.

The Blue Boxes Are Back On The Salt Marshes On Cape Cod

The “Blue Boxes” have been put on the salt marshes her on Cape Cod to attract those nasty Green Flies and mosquitoes. There’s something inside of the boxes that attracts the insects and then they get stuck inside.

It Is quite amazing how they work. We live very close to the salt marsh  and the beach on Cape Cod Bay and rarely see a Green Fly or a mosquito.

You can see how they put them along the sides of the marsh near the edge where people live.
