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!

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.
