Snowy Sunset

February 16, 2016

Rhode Island was treated to something very special the first week of February.  As our winter moved from sunny and 50 to snowy and properly chilly in a matter of days, we started getting snow after snow after snow.  Our second good snowfall happened just in time for sunset on a Friday afternoon.  

I was in the middle of cleaning off my car when I noticed the end of the cloud line and the setting sun.  I saw it coming and waited patiently... until I had just a few minutes to run inside and grab my camera.  As the clouds started moving away to the east the sank lower in the west, there was only a 15 minute window when everything aligned just right.  The freshly dusted trees began to light up in a wintery light show like no other!   Then the clouds chimed in with bright pinks and oranges.  I ran around the yard for all of those 15 minutes before having to get in the car and drive away.  

The next two days the internet exploded with sunny sunset shots.  I'm glad so many people were able to witness this beautiful winter display!

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.

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.
