A Warm Summer Sunset
With another winter storm bringing more than a foot of snow, while I enjoy getting out and shooting the conditions, it’s also always nice to remember that summer will return. This image is a view of sunset from Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Steph and I took a trip north with our little munchkin to visit some of our oldest friends, who also happen to be the reason we met each other. Ogunquit Beach at dusk was a magical place after a dinner downtown, with some beautiful pastels in the sky and warm summer air with the refreshing ocean breeze. I’ve got many more images to share from our little summer getaway that I’m looking forward to sharing!

Coastal beauty at the sea in Rye, NH.
A chilly drive along the coast rewarded us with some beautiful seascape shots this weekend. The wind was so strong that each of the waves gave off a head of mist as it began to break rolling towards the coastline. I love this shot as the freighter is hiding out in the background on the horizon, just before it made its way up the Piscataqua to unload.
With anything in life, change is constant. While something might be at complete rest, something else is always in perpetual motion. I guess it depends whether you’re the rock or the ocean what your perspective is.
This shot was taken at Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine on the Atlantic coast. I don’t think I’ve ever visited and not been in awe as I watch the ocean do its thing, especially where the waves meet the rocks.
There is something soothing about going for a drive along the coastline. I went for a drive this past weekend and was greeted with misty weather, a bit raw and cooler along the stormy waves – so it was the perfect opportunity to break out the neutral density filter and calm the water down in-camera. The colors were very muted, although a hint of blue sky can be found despite the cloud activity on the horizon.
Every single time I head to the ocean, I find myself at peace and relax and in awe of the ridiculous size of the body of water. Waves fascinate me to no end, to the point that I often take a hundred photos of little nuances in the wave pattern as they roll, break, recede, etc. This shot was taken with the Hasselblad H4D-31 camera that I had the good fortune to demo – and this is a cropped version of a larger shot. The quality of the shot helped me bring out a ridiculous amount of detail in reaching the final image you see here. I hope you enjoy.
The early morning sunlight peeks through some clouds, illuminating some freighters on the horizon in Miami Beach. This was the last bit of interestingness happening on the horizon this particular morning…after the sun climbed above the clouds, everything on the waterfront was lit with gorgeous rich sunlight…but the horizon was overly bright, so everything became a bit washed out. Was thrilled to catch some early rays in warmer weather…looking forward to its return to us here in New Hampshire!
The shots aren’t quite polar opposites, but they are coastal opposites. The shot above was taken on the shore of South Beach in Miami on a warm morning just as first light made its way onto the atlantic coast, probably in the high 60s…and the shot below was taken on the shore of Rye Beach late in the afternoon after a major northeastern snow storm moved past the coast (dropping fresh snow) with temperatures probably in the low teens. What I’m sure of is the fact that the ocean is mesmerizing regardless of where you’re watching it from, with its sheer immensity laughing off my presence.
