On point

An HDR photograph taken just before sunset from the north end of the bay beach in Ship Bottom, New Jersey. The protruding jetty rock creates a natural leading line toward the drama off on the horizon.
On point — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 50 | 7 Bracketed Exposures

Here’s a holdover from last night’s shoot at Ship Bottom’s cloistered sunset park aptly named, Sunset Point. I made this shot from seven bracketed exposures; I took them just before I loaded up my ND filter and made yesterday’s long exposure.

I’m using the jetty rock as a natural leading line, pointing out the action across the bay along the horizon. The smooth blue tones washing over the scene evoke a calming mood, reinforced by the soft ripples undulating across the top water. This spot just screams (whispers?) stay awhile and listen. Listen to your thoughts. Listen to the water. Listen to the birds and to the breeze. There is wisdom in nature.

With Spring just over the horizon the place makes me smile, imagining the warmth to come.
