Sunrise at Port Mahon Delaware

I’m moving some files around on my hard drives and looking through some stuff from last year. Here are two images I haven’t posted before. They are pretty much straight out of the camera at the crack of dawn, literally. Port Mahon is a quiet beach area on the Delaware Bay. It once was home to a thriving fishing industry. Now there are a few boats that use it and a fishing pier. With every really high tide or storm, the road gets covered in sand and has to be plowed or reinforced. In the summer it is a massive horseshoe crab breeding ground with all the smells that go with thousands of dead crabs that got caught by an outgoing tide and left high and dry. There is a certain beauty to the place though…. Port Mahon Delaware at Sunrise
