Clouds Over Dunes – Cape May

Clouds Over Dunes
Cape May
September 2009

Still my favorite landscape of one of my favorite escapes. I’ve been trying to recreate this shot with a newer camera for about 10 years without much success so far. The fencing and dunes have drifted dramatically since the creation of this image in 2009.

Lisa and I are looking forward to our annual retreat to Cape May in October.
