Guilford, Connecticut

December 27, 2014  •  1 Comment

Almost every day I take a walk along the bluffs just a short walk from my house.  Each time I go, I see something new or different.  Sometimes it is just the sea and sky in a new combination of colors and moods. So I’ve been thinking for a while about creating a series of seascapes to try to capture the changes in these simple elements.

Many of my photographer friends say that a beautiful sunset does not necessarily make a good image.  Generally I agree, but sometimes I just want to reduce an image to its most basic elements – color, line, texture. 

I think I found image #1 of this seascape series when we visited my cousin in Guilford, Connecticut, on our recent road trip.  A short evening walk down to the shore with camera and tripod gave me a chance to watch, wait, compose, and click. I’ll be looking for similar opportunities wherever sky and sea come together.

Very nice, very 'moody' and evocative. Reminds me of a Turner landscape.
