Delaware Bay ~ Cape Henlopen

On a foggy day by the sea life goes on~ Children play~ Fisherman fish and photographers make pictures. While walking around the fish pier in Cape Henlopen State Park on Wednesday, with Dick and Dorine, the fog came rolling in. I love the human activity that takes place at this location~ people doing what they do....Dick spotted the activity on the beach of the park employees with their fish nets stretched out and engaged with what appeared to be school children learning about ocean life. He even said they made a fish prayer, which I missed. I enjoyed the simplicity of the shore, the foggy effect in the atmosphere and watching people enjoy the sea. Clamming is a frequent activity at this spot. I also loved the young boys with heir feet in the muck raking for clams. The old man in the hat, turquoise tank and military boots was a grin. All processed with Snap Art3 from Alien Skin. I really like their in program layer option, which allows you to select three different effects in the image, in the image below, I used an in program layer to apply a smaller brush effect to the man and his reflection, while making a selection separately for the beach and the water.


  1. Delicious beach images! Reminds me of the late 19th/early 20th century American artists' renditions of beach sccens but with different clothing. The guy with the turquoise shirt was made to order! Should I get SnapArt? It's one that I don't have.

    1. Hi Debbie, thanks for your comments. Should you buy Snap Art3? Well I love it and if you like the way these images were processed you will probably enjoy using it as well! Maybe go shopping on the Alien Skin site and see what you think.

  2. Thanks, great answer. I'll check out the site!
