Last Tuesday, I celebrated my birthday and awoke before the alarm clock at 5:30am. I had previously scouted the location and time of the sunrise as it had occurred to me I had never tried to shoot a sunrise on my birthday. Having woken up early enough and with some time until I had to be at work, I quickly got dressed and headed out the door. I had two possible locations in mind but decided on the Devereux Beach one when I saw how the light was developing. I photographed the dawn as light began to grow at […]

Unfortunately, Redd’s Pond and Little Harbor didn’t have anything in the way of smoke. I crossed my fingers and made my way to Front Street hoping for better luck. For whatever reason, the water […]
