Qeba #1: Moonrise

April 16, 2013

It was one of those days that just worked out perfectly.  I finished my work early.  I took a look at the tide charts, the weather forecast, and the lunar calendar.  Everything aligned just right for a sunset/moonrise shoot with a slack tide.  So I made my way down to Charlestown Quononchotaug Beach, QEBA actually (Quonnie East Beach Assoc) where there was easy access to a quiet beach and some great low lying rocks.  

I set up for a seascape shoot featuring the large boulder that dominated the landscape.  The clouds moved out as the sun sank lower.  I gradually recomposed as the sun set and moon rose.  Shot number three is probably my favorite with light pastels, calm water, and a moon just visible above the clouds on the horizon.  

I was so happy with the results from this shoot I returned the next day for more!  You'll have to wait for the next blog post to see those!

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!

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.
