Sunrise at the Atlantic Ocean

This is one of my favorite images from a morning that I spent on Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport enjoying a sunrise at the atlantic ocean.  In the distance, homes dotting the shoreline are just beginning to get hit with the orange glow of the sunrise while others are still in the early morning dark.  The sailboats and the cloud movement from the long exposure gave the scene an element of vibrancy among the eerie quiet of the morning.

Sunset in Kennebunkport

It’s not often that I travel outside my familiar Portsmouth and seacoast destinations for photography, so I always enjoy sharing what I find when I do.

Our quick getaway to Kennebunkport was refreshing, and it was nice to enjoy the coast a bit north of home – and I was treated to this beautiful cloudless sunset at Goose Rocks Beach on our first night there.  I always find that the colors in the summer sky over the ocean are mesmerizing, especially when the ocean is calm enough for clear reflections.

At Goose Rocks Beach

We took a little getaway trip to Kennebunkport recently, and I decided to get up for sunrise to enjoy the beauty of the coastline.  Goose Rocks Beach is a beautiful long white sand beach with a nice vista of the horizon.  The sand at the beach is full of rippling formations from the changing tides, just perfectly kissed by the day’s early sunlight in this image.
