Wickford Snow, again

March 10, 2015

Well hopefully that was the last of it.  Let's cross our fingers and hope Old Man Winter will finally have some mercy!  But at least this last snowfall was the sticky picturesque winter wonderland kind that fell softly and beautifully throughout the day.  No biting breeze or extreme subzero temperatures, just a soft white snowfall to welcome March.  

I took an hour long walk through sleepy snowy Wickford, enjoying the empty streets and frosted houses.  A walk along the dock at the End O Main put this winter into chilly perspective, as ice still covered most of the harbor and fishermen dug out their frozen boats.  

As beautiful as this snowfall was, I'm still looking forward warmer weather and for winter to finally come to an end.  Maybe the harbor will get a chance to thaw and we can get spring started...  Forget spring, I can't wait for summer!

See all the snowy shots from this year and last in the Winter Gallery from my Photography Catalog.

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.
