Qeba #2: Cloudy Dusk

April 18, 2013

So I loved shooting at Qeba so much (Quonnies East Beach in Charlestown) that I returned for a second day in a row to catch another sunset!  Everything was just perfect, once again.  A beautiful blue sky with clouds overhead that I could expect to be underlit as the sun sank.  A clear horizon to allow light for the setting sun!  Somewhat calm waters that wouldn't threaten my life, and wonderfully exposed rocks to focus on.  

I moved away from the large boulder that was the center of my photography the previous day and worked on some of the smaller rocks nearby.  I had several compositions (all can be seen at www.catebrownphoto.com) but these three are some of my favorite, with the second shot being one of my absolutely favorites from this year so far!  

Although the clouds didn't quite light up as brilliant and pink as I was hoping, it was still a beautiful evening and a terrifically successful shoot!  Hope everyone else is in as much love with these shots as I am!

Warm Getaways

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.
