Wickford Doors in the Snow

February 13, 2014

Most people dread snow.  Snow means cold weather, shoveling, sloppy roads, and salt stains on your boots.  But I've been waiting for it!  The couple of snows we've had this winter have been fluffy and coupled with heavy winds.  These storms produced wind blistered faces and tall snow drifts, not the gentle sticky stuff that makes the world beautifully quiet and picturesque.  But this time, just as we turned from January to February, I was in luck.  We had a wet snowfall and it stuck to everything!  Not only that, but it came with little to no wind so you could take a stroll outside and not be worried about subzero temperatures.  So at the first opportunity I took my camera for a walk in the backyard with my Lensbaby Spark and then I switched to my 50mm lens for a walk through Wickford.

I'd been meaning to do Wickford Doors for a while, a popular motif in this part of town, and with no cars on the road and beautiful winter weather I took my time walking Main Street to photograph these historic entryways.  I think the coral colored house with the rustic door is my favorite!  Plenty more at www.catebrownphoto.com under Coastal Life.

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!
