Barefoot Landing at Night

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I go the the beach in May of almost every year.  But we've also gone a couple of times in December to get a winter seafood fix.  The temperatures are much cooler and the days are shorter, but that does have some advantages.  We visited a nearly deserted Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where I got this night picture of Old Glory.  I didn't notice the plane coming in for a landing until I uploaded the photo to my computer.

Crisp and clear shot of Old Glory! Made me want to stand and salute. You and Betsy been to advanced photography school? It sure looks like it.

I LOVE the flag at night, a really great photo idea. Barefoot Landing?? You know me, WHY? I can't imagine...

Beautiful shot of the flag bathed in the lights. And interesting that you caught a plane coming in, too. Barefoot Landing is an interesting name.

Excellent and beautiful shot. But just what is Barefoot landing?
I have a hard time with night photos. Sometimes they work and sometimes not. Oh well---keep trying, I say. MB

Uma bela foto noturna, com saliência para a feérica iluminação e a bandeira aprumada em primeiro plano.
Um abraço,
Jorge

At first I thought it was about somebody landing on barefoot! But now I know it is the name of the town. Beautiful!

This shot really turned out well.
I love the flag.
It sure has a history. What's even more inspiring is that I just had Nicks friend say to me that if I knitted him a flag shawl he'd wear it.
That's Patriotism for you. Now I'm thinking how I would make such a flag?
Then of course I'd need to make one with the maple leaf for my son then they could both take a picture. They were great pals in US soccer

Beautiful night photo. Funny how we take photos and later find surprises when they're uploaded onto our computers!

Beautiful night shot, George. I want to experiment some with night shots. My little digital is useless in the dark, but I do have a manual Nikon.

Amelia said...

Hi George, excellent night scenery. Look beautiful.

Best regards.
