On the way Home

September 20, 2012

So the cruise was drawing to a close, and I was having a hard time believing a whole week had passed.  We woke up with the sun to leave Block Island, and luckily the fog had lifted for the most part as we made our way up the Bay.  The sun even started poking through as we approached the Jamestown Bridge!  There was a big thunderstorm in the forecast so we were pressed to get home around noon time to beat the storm.

As we were approaching Wickford Harbor, we noticed several boats all heading the opposite direction, and I took a few shots.  Looks like it was Larchmont Yacht Club out of New York on a cruise of their own!

Well, we made it to dock and unloaded the entire boat, made it home, unpacked the whole car, and THEN it started to rain.  We got lucky, and it was a heavy thunderstorm.  I'm sure the WYC members who left Block Island a bit later than us were having a wet sail back. 

Anyway, it was a terrific day on the water and a great way to end an awesome weekend cruising up and down Block Island Sound.

Feel free to check out all of my images from the trip under the Block Island Sound gallery on my website, or just browse through the Photography Catalog.  Images are available as Fine Art Prints, Personal Use Downloads, and Editorial Stock.  A few images are also available as poster versions, so check out all the Posters I have available as well!

How I got these shots:  Nikon D700 and Nikkor 70-200mm VRII

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!

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.

I haven't been in the water for sunset in a while.  But the opportunity finally presented itself a couple weeks ago.  The sky was clear for once, there was a bump of swell in the water but apparently no one really deemed it worthwhile because the lineup was empty.  Fellow photographer friend Gus Potter grabbed his board instead of a camera, and the two of us hopped in with only half an hour or so before sunset to catch a few with the one other soul already in the water.  

It was a little windy and wonky, and certainly cold, but it was one of my favorite sessions this month.  You just can't beat that dusky light!
