May 5th proved to be a very productive day.  As I wrote on the supermoon image and the recent ‘two roads‘ one, a blanket of fog descended on me as I set up for a shot at Fort Sewall that evening.  When it became clear that the fog would not clear, I set about looking for images that wouldn’t otherwise be available to me in clearer conditions.

The telescope you see stands across the harbor from the lighthouse.  On a clear day, there is no way to not see the iconic structure and, therefore, the poor scope pales in comparison and loses the viewer’s eye all too quickly.  I descended the stairs to explore angles with which to give the scope its proper place and found a vibrant patch of grass on the hill descending down toward Little Harbor.  Without other objects across the harbor to detract, the clean image of a telescope on a hill presented itself.

A few more foggy images yet to come…
