The Rhode Island Sunrise

The Rhode Island Sunrise

October 25, 2011

As the days are getting shorter and the sun starts coming up later in the morning, I decided to make the chilly trek down to my town beach to catch the sunrise this week.  It was a gorgeous morning, about 35 degrees outside, sea smoke, light clouds, and an incredibly bright sunrise of pinks and blues.  I captured the breathtaking scenery as best I could, but of course, nothing is quite like actually witnessing it!  Unlike during summer months when watching a sunrise means waking up at ungodly hours in the morning, the autumnal sunrise seemed just perfect!  Over the next few weeks, our gorgeous golden overseer will be shifting slowly further south, and I intend on witnessing some of that as well.  Enjoy!

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.
