The Marginal Way | Ogunquit, Maine

On a Veterans Day visit to Perkins Cove and the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine, my brother and I were greeted with some fierce ocean waves and gorgeous sunlight.  The waves were so big in fact, that when I set up my tripod in the parking lot, as I was framing a shot with my eye in the viewfinder – I was actually soaked with the spray from the waves hitting the rock wall.  (Yes, soaked…so badly in fact that a couple walking by offered to get paper towels from their car to save my camera!)

The scenery didn’t lend itself to HDR imagery with the churning of the ocean, but the late day sunlight was so rich in color that I kept shooting and shooting with all the variety in the textures of the water and the coastline.  Plenty of shots from this trip…hope to get back during sunrise some day to catch the gorgeous morning sunlight as it reaches the east coast.

Spring is officially around the corner (I don’t want to stretch too far and say it’s here – and then end up with a blizzard)!  On Saturday I ventured up to Ogunquit for a stroll along the Marginal Way with one very special lady.  We had a perfect sunny afternoon, and I was happy to have some sunshine and warmth as a birthday gift.  Here are a couple shots from the coastline during the late afternoon…I will definitely be heading back!

Also – a huge thank you to Fotomoto.com for making me the featured artist for March 7th!
