As Winter is losing its grip on New England, I thought it might be interesting to have a short series of images that show some of the beauty that the coldest season presents.
This was an image from last year’s outing with John Slonina Photography along the northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire coast. It was a blustery day with gray skies, but sufficient sunlight to make for wonderful photographic opportunities.
It’s not often that we get enough snow to stay on a beach, such as we see here; usually, wind and sea spray will clear the snow over a matter of days. This beach was beautifully presented with this snow, as nobody had traversed it yet; the dune fence and grasses provide some interest against the leaden sky above the ocean.
Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III and a EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. Exposure settings were 1/125 second at f/14 at 200 ISO. A circular polarizing filter was used.
