Beavertail from the Sky

July 14, 2016

Ah.. Beavertail, one of those spots that's always beautiful, always full of wonder!  You can find some peace and quiet here during the off season, but in the summer months it is often flooded with cars watching the sunset to the west. 

This night in particular I was out for an evening stroll to photograph the sunset and moonrise.  It proved rather difficult to get the most flattering angle of the building with the moon in the background, but as I experimented with angles I found perhaps the best shot of all just offshore looking straight back to land, at an elevation of only about 90 feet!

Per usual, I was so eager in my flight I mistimed the sunset just so, and the pink clouds were illuminated only after I had exhausted both batteries.  Well, I guess I'll just have to go back again!

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

Board Portraits // Experiments

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
