Cruise to Cuttyhunk

September 04, 2014

The first weekend of August the Wickford Yacht Club takes a cruise.  All the club members get together with their boats, sail or power, and visit various ports of call along the southern New England Coast.  Typically, the first stop is Cuttyhunk Island just east of Narragansett Bay.  It's the first island you reach as you hang a left past Newport, and a tiny one in the Elizabeth Island chain which includes Martha's Vineyard.  I could only make it for part of the cruise this year, which would be turning back up Narragansett Bay.  So I decided to take the first couple of days of the cruise to enjoy Cuttyhunk, and depart the venture at the second port of call, Westport. 

It was a great couple of days on the mooring in remote and picturesque Cuttyhunk Harbor.  I got some great shots while hanging out on the boat at dusk, watching other cruisers playing in the water, and even more while wandering the rock and sand beaches.  

The full gallery can be seen here combined with other shots from cruises past!  Enjoy!

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.

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.
