Stormy Seas in Narragansett

Stormy Seas in Narragansett

January 31, 2012

A few weeks ago, I made the short trip down to Narragansett in the hopes of finding some surfers out on the water given the prospect of storm swells.  Sadly, there wasn't much swell, and only a few people in the water so sorry, no surfing shots.  But we did watch the water and light rain blow through, and I captured a few shots of the weather and waves, and even Beavertail Light shining through the fog.


I'll be keeping an eye on the local surf reports while I'm working on other projects.  Perhaps I'll find some kite surfers out there in the next few weeks too.  And as promised, images from my first rolls of Holga film will be posted next week!

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.
