Dealing with Harsh Weather…

Beach Scenes

A week ago I blogged about  my photographic week and many of the shots I posted were a result of some crazy weather we were having and those shots showed how it impacts the beaches here in New Jersey.

I certainly don’t like the devastating results of these storms on the beaches close to my home but it certainly makes for great photography.

Last week a combination of strong winds, high tide and full moon made for some extraordinary surf. Only the best surfers come out in these conditions and I’m glad I caught some of the action.

The waves were big but quite unorganized yet it didn’t stop this pro from work’in it…

I look at some of these shots and try to envision myself atop these masses of water and ultimately I’m glad I’m standing where I am…

Finally, just before I was about to leave, this guy showed up and I got what I think is the “shot of the day”…

With the arrival of a nor’easter today and possibly Hurricane Joaquin a day or so later I hope to be able to photograph more of the harsh weather and show it to you up close and personal….. Stay tuned!

  1. Neat series. My favorite is the second one, where his board is basically vertical. I like how you managed to get a sliver of his face exposed even with his arms up like that.
