Quiet Morning at the Cove

February 20, 2014

While we still had the nice sticky snow setting the scene, I woke up early one morning to attempt a sunrise shoot instead of my usual sunsets.  I was driving along trying to think of the best location for the light and decided to go back to Wickford Cove where I had attempted another morning shoot a couple months ago.  The road wasn't plowed very well and I had to park down the street and walk a bit, but it was worth it for the quiet and solitude, and of course the morning light.

This was the result, and luckily I didn't freeze to death like last time either!  The sun lit up the trees as it rose but I still was unable to capture the scene as I wanted.  I guess I'll just have to try again some other time but meanwhile I hope you still enjoy this snowy scene from a brackish Wickford Cove!

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.

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!
