My lovely wife and I went to Corpus Christi Texas for a Catholic Daughters Convention April 20-23, 2017. While she was at the convention most of the time, I had a photography outing. I took over 850 pictures of the event and areas in and around Corpus.
Nice weather produced some pretty sunrises.
I rode my bike to the Naval Air Station and saw several birds. The birds I saw and wanted to photograph was a Red Tipped Spoonbill. They look similar to Flamingos. When I dove there in the car, of course they were already gone and it was getting hot.
I had a nice surprise when I loaded the Pictures on the PC.
Afterwards I drove to Mustang Island to Bob Hall Pier.
I don’t know what this bird is, but he looks intimidating. I just googled it and it is an Osprey.
I tried some long exposure shots at night of the Corpus Christi bay and skyline. Some are pretty good but even on the tripod the wind was shaking my camera. Crazy!
I got photobombed with a seagull. Surprise!
Along the Docks there are several actively working shrimp boats.
Along the coast line as well is a little ways in town, there were some interesting places from yesteryear.
Some planned graffiti and some not so much.
I walked to the top of the Harbor Bridge, (well almost) – This bridge is 16 stories high at the road surface to the water. The little walkway is barely wide enough for two people back to back. It was a little freaky to say the least!
I have posted the some of the better pictures here.
Next weekend we go to Bastrop, Texas for Channa’s 93rd Birthday! Stay tuned!
