Weekend Sunrise IV – Branford, Linden Shores and Guilford, Tuttles Point

On Saturday I slept in – 5:10 am. I figured I didn’t need as much time to get to the beach for sunrise because I had planned to go only as far as Linden Shores. I was right about the timing, but again I had misjudged where the sun would peek over the horizon. I thought I had taken sunrise shots at this location previously, so after getting home I checked the metadata on those files and realized they had been shot in February – file that info away!

I saw some amazing clouds picking up beautiful color way off to my left and behind buildings and trees. I had to ignore that and work with what I had right in front of me.  Two weeks ago my only companion was an early fisherman, last week my only companions were Canada Geese who were more surprised to see me than I was them, this week my only companions were bugs. Bugs, bugs, BUGS!  They were getting in my ears, my nose and my eyes!  I stayed around long enough to capture these:

 

 

 

Sunday morning it’s back to Tuttles Point in Guilford where I know the sun rises. I’m looking for new spots close to Branford and Guilford so if you have any ideas please comment here!

It was 58 degrees, enough for me to wear a jacket and I still felt a slight chill. Once again the sky didn’t look like it was going to be very dramatic. Once I set up quickly and took this first shot I realized I had some great company this morning!

 

 

 

I had my wide lens on the camera and didn’t want to make too many movements changing the lens, so these are cropped a bit. They were very curious and didn’t leap away immediately. Especially the little one! What a great surprise!

Even without extra dramatic clouds the morning was beautiful and I got quite a few shots I really liked.

 

 

This last one being my favorite of all.

 

 

Weekend Sunrise III – Early Morning On The Connecticut Shoreline – Milford/West Haven and Guilford

After photographing the sunset for about 3 years I found myself in a situation where I was no longer able to get out to the beach at that time and I was feeling not so good about it. On the suggestion of a friend I decided to try getting up in time for the sunrise. Having to be on time for work during the week I realized the only time I could get to the beach for sunrise was on the weekends. So, Weekend Sunrise series was created. This is actually the 3rd installment (in case you couldn’t tell by the title). I wasn’t sure I would be able to sustain this project but after 3 weekends in a row I’m feeling pretty excited!

Saturday morning, not knowing the optimum sunrise locations (yet) and still not having the time to venture to fat from home even on the weekend had me heading to a spot I remembered from years ago when I had taken some sunrise shots. Soon after I arrived I realized I had misjudged the location. The sun was actually rising far to my left. I figured I didn’t have time to race around chasing what might the spot, I set up to get some shots anyway – good for later reference I thought. Shooting sunsets in the summer can be a bit of drag because there are always people around! Trying to get a shot without someone obliviously walking right through the shot or placing in a position where I figure I can edit them out later (which I never have time do to anyway) is next to impossible. But, at sunrise – there is no one around. My only companions this morning was a flock of Canada Geese, just waking up. I think they were annoyed to see me. I noticed one of them was limping and I felt so bad. I watched him trying to keep up with his friends and wondered what had happened. I hoped and imagined that he could swim ok – and I thought that when flying he would be fine – they spend most of their time swimming and flying – right? Not so much walking – anyway here are a couple of shots —

I thought some bugs were dive bombing me, but then I realized it was starting to rain, so using good judgement I decided to head for home. Taking the road through West Haven along the beach proved to be the right decision, as I came around a corner on Ocean Avenue I was treated to the exact spot where the sun rises – beautiful purple and blue.

Even with the raindrops, I hung around until it got lighter.

Sunday morning I headed back to the Weekend Sunrise I spot,  Tuttles Point in Guilford. It wasn’t looking so promising, the sky looked too clear, no clouds – but since I was on the road at 5:00 am, I figured I had to keep going.  It turned out to be better than expected, with some nice reflections and no bugs. It was chilly, considering it was August and we had just come off of a heat wave where it had been 80 degrees at 5:00 am – I was really glad to have my jacket, and yes – my boots! At least 25 egrets flew overhead on their way to somewhere…

 

As the sky got brighter I had to turn away from the direct sunlight – way too bright to get a decent exposure. Still some great color.

And behind the scenes……..

On the way home I discovered where the egrets where heading to! On Rte 146 – just before Shell Beach Road there were at least 100 egrets feeding in the salt marsh. Sorry, I didn’t get a shot – I would have had to go on private property……..

 

 

 

Winter Storm Nemo and Sunset at Old Saybrook Town Beach

If you live in the Northeast, or anywhere in the U.S. for that matter, you are familiar with the recent aftermath of winter storm Nemo. Like most New Englanders I spent 4 days in the house unable to get out of my driveway. The first day after the storm. three powerful ladies with shovels had the driveway cleared before the guy across the street with a snow blower.

Although we cleared the driveway and our cars, we didn’t get far as this was what it looked like where our road should be:

I was happiest this week, when finally freed from snowy entrapment, when I had a chance to enjoy a spectacular sunset at Old Saybrook Town Beach!




Not many people agree with how I shoot landscapes vertically, but these two are my favorites of the night –

 

Interview – Exhibition Without Walls, for Photographers and Digitals Artists

Ed Wedman, co-founder of Exhibition Without Walls contacted me awhile back and asked if I would agree to an interview for his website. What is EWW? Please visit their website for full description and to view excellent samples of work from artists around the world, but to sum it up here is a quote: “We want to acknowledge that photography and digital art fall into the realm of fine art by providing a venue to display their works.” I am happy to be included on this website because from way back in my career as an artist/photographer this has been an ongoing theme in many discussions. Please take some time to read my interview where a bit of that thought is discussed. It would be really nice and appreciated if you would take a moment to comment too, either here or on the EWW blog. Thanks!

Artist Reception, Christopher Martin’s Restaurant, New Haven, CT – Photography Exhibit – APSIDES

A great turnout today for my artist’s reception at Christopher Martin’s. Great to see some familiar faces, friends who came out to support me and meet some new people. A big shout out to Brian Virtue who not only helped me hang the show in December, but provided a great reception with passed hor d’oeuvres. wine and beer. This review, written by my friend Margaret Waage, really says it all! Thank you Margaret for your intuitive insights. This morning I was feeling a little cranky, but after talking to so many people at the reception I was feeling great. Five pieces from the show will be going to new homes when the show comes down and though I joke about being happy not to have to lug them around any more, I have to admit I am going to miss them! These are the pieces that sold.
