Photo of the Week

FIERY SKY

Jerry Allen of Middle Island took this picture at Port Jefferson Harbor in June on his iPhone. He writes, ‘As has so often been the case this summer, the skies suddenly darkened with thunder and lightning in the distance. The storm passed over, however leaving in it’s wake blazing skies, twinkling lights on a fishing boat heading back and an unexpected brilliant sunset for all to enjoy.’

EMBRACING THE SEASON

Gerard Romano of Port Jefferson Station snapped this beautiful photo on Aug. 3. He writes, ‘The last few weeks I have seen many butterflies, and today there was a large monarch pollinating the blossoms at Harborfront Park in Port Jefferson. I set the camera’s shutter to 6 frames a second and attempted to capture the monarch in full flight and managed to get this close.’

BALANCE CHALLENGE

THE CLOUDS AMONG US

Dawn Olenick of Baiting Hollow captured this photo at Reeves Beach in Riverhead with her Olympus camera in June. She writes, ‘I am always in awe of Mother Nature and her colors … that and being by the beach makes for happy endings to my days!’

CALLING IT A DAY

Tom Caruso of Smithtown captured this quintessential Long Island scene at Sunken Meadow State Park with a Nikon D850 on June 9 just before sunset.  He writes, ‘This fisherman had waded a good distance out into the water at the base of the Kings Park Bluffs and was casting for a long time.  As night fell around him, he threw his last cast, reeled in his line and returned to shore empty handed but was bathed in the beautiful colors of sunset.’

HAPPY RETURNS

Gerard Romano of Port Jefferson Station took this beautiful photo at the traffic circle near the Port Jefferson Country Club on June 21. He writes, ‘The daylilies have begun to bloom this year. In this photo I increased the level of contrast and shadow in the edit process to separate the flower from the background.’

THE MOON AND NEST

Jay Gao of Stony Brook captured this incredible image at West Meadow Beach with a Nikon D750 on May 16. He writes, ‘It was in the late afternoon, and  a full moon was rising  while the sun was  setting on the Sound.  I was amazed to notice that the moon was sitting on the top of the osprey nest like a huge egg.  In no time, the raptor came back to the nest and I took the shot.’

NATURE’S WONDER

Bev Tyler of East Setauket submitted this sweet photo taken on May 22. He writes, ‘A  robin’s nest discovered in a boxwood at home gave me the opportunity to take pictures of the babies as they progressed from just born and sleeping, above, to wide awake and hungry. The nest is now empty as of May 27.’
