Under the Setting SunTaken on Lewes Beach as the sun was setting on a warm night in June 2016. This was the cover photograph of the Delaware Beach Life Magazine for the August 2017 issue. I was quite proud to see it in print.
Resting in the HarborTaken during an early morning walk on Lewes Beach. I have to drag myself out of bed in those early hours but once I'm out and the sun begins to rise I feel tired no more.
Textures of the MorningI took this on one of my early morning walks on Lewes Beach. It was approaching low tide and the textures/ripples from the moving water were on full display.
Gloomy SerenityLewes Beach on a gloomy day. But, something about being close to the water can still brighten your day. At least it does for me. Get out and enjoy the day no matter what it has to offer.
Morning RushI enjoy capturing movement in my photography and the best way for me to do this is to shoot moving water at a slow shutter speed. In this image I capture the rush of the water as it was heading back into the ocean after an incoming wave. The trick is to be able to do this without getting wet feet. Though this is considered a long exposure, it was really only 1.5 seconds yet I still caught the movement.
The First of JulyI drug myself out of bed at 5:05am on July 1st, 2018 to go for a sunrise walk on Lewes Beach. When I got to the beach I saw this sailboat anchored offshore and I knew it was going to be my subject once the sun started to rise.
Inlet in the SnowI woke this morning to snow and, as much as I dislike cold weather, I still get excited when I see this natural white covering. So, I grabbed my camera and headed out for a three hour shoot. One of the great things about snow is that you can shoot all day long and you are not limited to capture that perfect light. This photograph was taken from the public parking lot at Roosevelt Inlet in February of 2016. It was taken from the Inlet parking lot looking northwest to the entrance of the Broadkill River. I'm sad to say that the old dock pilings in the foreground are now gone.
Patriotic Paint JobThis old barn is located along Route 1 north of Lewes. I had been looking forward to a snowy morning so that I could take a photograph with this effect. In February of 2016 I got what I was looking for. This barn has since been renovated with the side section removed. They did repaint it in these patriotic colors and, someday it will be old looking again.
WinterWhen the snow comes I grab my camera and go. This scene was taken in the Cape Henlopen State Park in February 2016.
Gull in the SnowThis photograph was taken along the canal in Lewes, Delaware.

As the Day EndsSunset from the point of the Cape Henlopen State Park. This is a highly photographed scene and I understand why. It is such a beautiful place to watch the sunset in Sussex County. You can see more of my work at RandyRobertsPhotography.com
Full Moon ObservationI climbed out of bed at 3:30 on this particular morning to head out for a photo shoot. I had several things in mind but, as it normally goes, other and better things became available. I happened upon this scene as I was walking back from the Great Dune of the Cape Henlopen State Park. This photograph is the setting of the full moon behind one of the WWII Observation Towers of the Delaware coast.
The Fishing PierAt 5:24 am. I took this photograph in the early morning hours at the Cape Henlopen State Park. There were a number of diehard fisherman out at the end of the pier. This was a 30 second exposure at f/14.
The DelriverMy goal, as it was last month during the setting of the full moon, was to capture the moon, unobscured, behind the Delriver. Well, the clouds got in the way yet again. I did take this photograph at 5:53 am just before the moon disappeared.
Living along the coast gives me the opportunity to photograph our local surfers. We don't always have the best waves but when the surf is up I grab my camera and head out to Herring Point in the Cape Henlopen State Park. Here are a few of the photographs I've taken on these expeditions.
