I had taken the short drive over the bridge to watch the weather roll in at Beavertail. I affixed my Lensbaby Spark to my Nikon D750 to play with spot focus shooting for something a little bit different, but the waves were nowhere to be found really.
The following day, the weather had mostly cleared, and I ventured to the beaches in search of surf. I swapped out my Lensbaby Spark for my go-to surf kit including the 70–200mm VRII with a 2x teleconverter at the ready. We found some waves... sort of... but I played with photographing the water instead of the surfing most of the day. The glassy little waves, rolling up the beach at only 12" tall, were other-worldly, or perhaps made of glass. As the light faded and the dusky blues rolled in, I found them absolutely captivating.
Then for a third day, I ventured up to Massachusetts in search of whatever true waves might be lingering after Toby. The swell was sloppy and disorganized, but yet again as the dusky blues rolled in I was just captivated by the water. I was nestled into the side of a dune, so setting up a tripod was out of the question. But with a few well timed burst shots while holding my breath, I managed to capture a few abstracts. Handheld abstracts are certainly not advised since getting that horizon line just right can be a pain, but I made it work.
