A gloomy morning at the Bob Hall fishing pier, Padre Island Texas
I've been searching for something good to say about the weather at Padre Island and so far the only thing I can come up with is, it's consistent. It usually starts out cloudy, foggy, and kind of drizzly. Then some of that slowly burns off until it becomes an overcast gray day where the sun might peek out for an hour or two. And then it reverts back to cloudy, dreary, with some gusty winds thrown in. I'm still being told, by those that have a financial reason for keeping me here, that this is not normal, and it will end soon, I kind of believed that a week ago but I'm starting to have my doubts.
I was going to write my post today about the thrill of taking infrared pictures since hundreds of people have requested that I write more information about how I take these pictures... Okay maybe it wasn't hundreds but it was a lot of people that wanted me to write about it....... all right! It was one person, just one, but they were very interested in infrared photography.... Well sort of interested but not a whole lot, but who cares, the point is I didn't get around to writing about it today because I didn't have any infrared pictures to illustrate what I wanted to show. So I went out this morning and took some infrared pictures in a neighborhood here on Padre Island which happened to be right across the highway from the County Park I'm staying at.
Now this is not a good day to take any kind of picture much less infrared pictures, sunshine really helps an infrared picture, and there was none of that to be found today. I took some pictures anyway but on such a gloomy day there nothing to write home about.
I took a quick check of the weather and it looks like all next week is only going to be partly cloudy, HOORAY! Then I looked at the temperatures, and the highs are only going to be in the forties and fifties. I can't catch a break.
