A galgo sunrise at Dewey Beach

Recommended Posts

I had the good fortune of being asked by Kathy Wagner to photograph her galgo Sambuca and her during Saturday's sunrise at The Dewey Gathering.. Fortunately we got to witness what I think was the best sunrise during my three days there.

We met about a half-hour before sunrise at the end of Collins Street at the south end of town and walked down to the water's edge. There was no wind to be speak of, unlike earlier in the week, and the twilight skies were spectacular. I took about 200 shots over the span of about 45 minutes while pausing occasionally to watch the sun rise. She wanted to acquaint Sambuca with the ocean but he was having none of that nonsense. There was lots of moments to capture as the sun cleared the horizon and the two of them paused, ran, and walked on the beach.

There were a number of keepers in this session: this frame is one of them. I removed some of the haze and glare, increased the vibrance and lightened the shadows a bit but not so much that it would be obvious. Sambuca was watching someone walking their greyhound towards us when I took this photo.

That is incredible!

We haven't been to Dewey since I started going to Spain in 2012, but one thing we always did was get up at sunrise to try and get some good pictures.  Of course, we never got any pictures like this!
