The Seascape Photography Gallery Captures the Spirit of The Ocean State
Rhode Island Seascape Photography is my passion, and something that is in my blood. When I am standing by the ocean’s edge waiting for the light to be just right I feel like a little kid at Christmas! The anticipation of seeing the colors dance across the sky as the new day starts is a feeling unlike any other. The photographs that you see here in the seascape photography gallery are some of my favorite images of all time.
Standing behind the camera is where I find my peace of mind, and the sounds, the smells, and the feel of the ocean air on my face relax me. As I look out at the horizon and explore the scene before me I can start to imagine what the photograph will look like and start making the adjustments until what I see through the viewfinder matches my vision.
It is hard to say what excites me about seascape photography at sunrise – is it the fresh air, the crashing sound of the waves hitting the shore, or perhaps it’s the little clinking sound that the rocks make as they bang into each other as the water recedes. I believe that it is all of this, as nature works all of its magic.
Looking at Rhode Island on the map it is hard to believe, but there are over 380 miles of coastline! The majority of these miles are along Narragansett Bay, the large body of water that gives the state is recognizable shape. It is these hundreds of miles of coastline that provide countless opportunities for me to pursue my seascape photography.
Rhode Island has amazing beaches full of diversity, with great expanses of soft, white sand while in other locations the coast is rough, rocky and treacherous. You will find many of my seascape photography for sale in the fine art galleries of my online store.
Regardless of why I love seascape photography, once the moment is right I get lost in my craft. Changing my position, adjusting the cameras settings, my body runs on autopilot to turn the scene in front of me into the raw photograph that matches my artistic vision. I will often take dozens of photos of the scene, making tiny adjustments in my effort to create that one image that will be special enough to frame and hang on my wall.
As an outdoor photographer that specialize in taking photographs of Rhode Island , I love to feel the fresh ocean breeze on my skin, and smell the salty air. The photographs capture the power of the ocean in her powerful waves, and the rich and vivid colors streak across the sky, complimenting the drama of the waters below. It is these photographs that really capture the spirit of the Ocean State!
While out photographing sunset at one of my favorite locations the other evening, I was fortunate to have a rather lengthy conversation with a local gentleman while he was out walking his dog. This gentleman lives only a short distance from the beach, and has been walking it regularly for over 40 years. We talked a bit about how much beach erosion had occurred since I had last been to this beach, and how surprised I was by how much it had changed. He told me that during his years he has seen the power of the ocean sculpts and changes the coastline over the course of days, weeks and even years. As he walked away he told me not to worry, that the ocean would bring the sand back in time.
While the ocean continues to reshape the RI coastline, as a seascape photographer I will continue to travel the state, applying my artistic vision to the scenery in front of me.
I encourage you to visit the fine art galleries of my website to pick out your own piece of seascape art, and let the spirit of the Ocean State show on the walls of your home or office!
