Winter Erosion

March 26, 2013

Another trip to Green Hill, except this time my jaw dropped when I came over the sand dune to see the beach.  Everything was eroded.  I know winter erosion happens, sands shift, and beaches become steep, but I was here a month or so ago and it didn't look anything like this!  The sloping beach was replaced by a steep decline.  Waves were no longer breaking parallel to the beach but at all sorts of odd angles, indicating shelves and deposits of sand under the surface.  All sorts of new rocks were exposed, and I took my time walking the beach as the sun sank lower in the sky.

Here's some more long exposure photography from late in the day.  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.
