First Seascapes of the Seasons

November 14, 2013

Summer's gone and the cold weather is moving in.  But while the weather was pleasant enough to venture outside without a third coat, I made a trip through South County to shoot my first seascapes of the season.  First up was Matunuck beach on a cold and windy day.  Even though sunset was a couple hours away, the cloudy conditions reduced the sunlight enough to allow me to shoot some long exposures.  I'm still hoping for that B+W #110 though!

Then, on the way home, the sky cleared just a little bit and turned a beautiful royal blue just after sundown.  I stopped by Narragansett Beach to capture some of the wonderful lighting conditions.  With little time to set up and shoot it's not necessarily my favorite work but I'm still very glad I made the stop!

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.

Snowy Surf Sessions

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.
