Rain and Waves

Rain and Waves

December 01, 2011

A storm this past Tuesday brought some intense wind and rain through overnight.  I'm talking wicked heavy and horizontal rain at times!  As the storm passed offshore there was some really big surf generated for Rhode Island and I went to a local surf spot to watch a few friends and take some shots.  It was my first time shooting surfing, and luckily the break was close enough to shore that I could shoot from the beach rather effectively.  Like the kitesurfing though, I was very pleased with several shots and am glad to share!  I also went to Beavertail before the rain hit to take a dusk panorama as well.  I was hoping for another stellar sunset like the other day but no such luck with all of the cloud cover that started to move in.  Well, enjoy these images!  More to come I'm sure!

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!
