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.
