So when that big snow in late December of 2010 was finally over here in NY, it took some time before normal activities would resume. Trains (LIRR) weren't moving for 2 days and weren't full operational for another week. We were snowed in, stuck in the house or doing snow stuff for two days. I needed to get out to do something and it's a good thing I have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, or I would be going nowhere.

I grabbed my camera, but it wasn't until I got on the road that I actually decided where I was going to end up. I just love driving in the snow right after a storm with my truck where there is not many people on the road. It is a rare sight to see the roads so empty on Long Island and I was lovin it!

It was about 2pm when I headed out and I noticed some cool things going on in the sky right after the storm was over. So I ended up that last place I ever would have thought, the beach. I decided to head over to Captree State Park in anticipation of a nice sunset.

The thing that made these shots for me was the contrast of temperature. The sunset looked so fiery and warm in the sky, while the foreground was covered in white powdery (freezing cold) snow. It was so cold and windy at the beach that I would have to set the camera on the tripod after making my settings in the truck while it's running with the hear blasting, take a few pictures and get right back in the truck to warm up. I didn't do this too many times, because of how cold it was, but I was certainly glad I had this crazy idea, cause I now have a beautiful pano from this shoot hanging in my dining room. I had made on a piece of metal and it really pops.

I love making images of the fire island lighthouse, I have plenty of them

I try to visit whenever I feel the urge. My favorite times to shoot are usually around sunrise or sunset. This is one that I took in the afternoon which basically proves that there is never a bad time to capture images there.

Platinum Sunset

I have lots of images of the Fire Island Lighthouse. This is definitely my favorite black and white. I was waiting for the sun to set and I happen to line this one up to include the sun glare with the boardwalk leading right to the already black and white lighthouse. It's a keeper!

One of my favorite places to watch the sun rise or set

It's long a quiet pier at the Cedar Beach Marina. It has awesome views of the Great South Bay and the Robert Moses Bridge. If you're ever there in the summer, just remember to bring bug spray, cause the mosquitoes are on steroids.

I love taking images of the Fire Island lighthouse

It is such a beautiful lighthouse and that area at the beach is so peaceful. I was there last summer waiting for the sun to set when I noticed there were others that were doing the same. A couple with the fishing pier all to themselves and taking it all in. I love taking beach pictures and these images are giving me spring fever. Bring on Spring!

Not exactly a trash the dress session, but how could you have a beach wedding without getting a little wet. The bride was very cool. She did not want to completely ruin her dress, but she didn't mind getting the bottom wet and full of sand. So in the water we went.
