I’ve gotta say, it’s been a pretty solid day of shooting. It started out with this morning’s pleasantries on the beaches of Ship Bottom and ended with the deepening blue skies of a Dock Road blue hour. Since I spend so much of my time photographing the marshes of Cedar Run Dock Road, I figured the least I could do is give the actual road some love. Besides, what else is there to shoot during a sunset that is sans clouds? Also, I’m noticing in my evolution as a photographer that I have a thing for signs.

Worth mentioning: I ran into my old buddy Vin. He was there with his new Nikon D80o. We got to talk shop and take some photos; he gave me some good pointers for potential printing arrangements should I ever get that off the ground. All in all it was a good day.

    Loved the morning beach shot. I am from Rumson, just up the road from your island, so this as a nice bit of home for me. Have you photographed the areas hit by Sandy, especially Sea Bright? I would be curious to see recent photos of Sea Bright and Rumson. I looked at as many as I could find online during and after the storm, but living in Wisconsin, I haven’t been back there to see the recovery.

    Good morning, Ruth. Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately I have not made it to any points north of of local area (Manahawkin, Long Beach Island). It’s definitely something I’d like to do in the future, however. I’m always looking for new spots to photograph. I’d particularly enjoy the Sea Bright and Rumson area as those two shore towns are simply beautiful.
