Cruise to Cuttyhunk

August 29, 2013

Every year the Wickford Yacht Club takes their annual cruise.  All the members get together and travel as a group by boat to various locations around Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts.  Last year we went along Block Island Sound towards Connecticut but this year it was east through the Elizabeth Island and New Bedford.

First stop was Cuttyhunk!  I hadn't been there in quite some time but it was a beautiful harbor, plus crisp refreshing clean waters.  We were so lucky the rain had come through the previous days so our few nights in the harbor were wonderfully clear and full of summer light.

I took a stroll on land and came across some rock stacking that had been left behind.  And that night there was a beautiful sunset that lit up the entire harbor!  I took some shots for a stitched together panoramic, probably my new favorite image in a while.  As the sun sank lower I took out the tripod for some cool long exposures from the bow, to give the shots a little bit of gentle motion and energy.

All photos can be found on my website under Elizabeth Islands!  More about our stops at Lake Tashmoo and Martha's Vineyard on the way.

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.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
