I went to the beach and took some pictures (v2, all images in Cortex)

I went for a short drive for pictures today. I walked the beach at Mukilteo and took mostly macro/close-up photos.


Slept in until 3:30 AM, with no plan, but I wanted to go somewhere. Checked the weather and it was starry outside my door, so I went for a drive. I drove out to Index hoping for a sunrise view of Mt. Index. I arrived at 6:15, but didn't like the conditions, so I went back. Stopped at Sultan Bakery for donuts, had a nice drive, then went to the beach.

Sunrise was mostly a bust, but there was a little color. I took a few landscape pictures in Everett and Mukilteo, but mostly I took close-ups on the beach. 21 mildly interesting photos.

A little sunrise color over Everett at 7:34 AM. Center/left is Jetty Island, a nice sandy beach that kite surfers use. To the right is Naval Station Everett.

This guy was taking photos of an egret. I didn't have my telephoto lens on, so I wasn't worried about it, but you can kind of see it at the tip of the land, center-left. (Yes there are 2 people standing there)  8:10 AM.

Lots of little bugs!

A few more little bugs. I like how some are sharp but a couple are moving. They were jumping around a lot.

I think this one is cool. Just sand, a rock, and seaweed.

In the picture the inside of this shell looks ultraviolet or something. Only light editing.

That's the end. That's more than enough. Like I said, mildly interesting. I'm still trying to figure out how best to use this Cortex thing, so we'll see how this version goes.
