The Cold Beach

cold beach 1wWhy would I go to the New Hampshire coast in November? Because I’m a bit crazy? I do it almost every year.

Before the bitter cold of winter sets in I like to capture the delicate late afternoon light. It was a little colder than I would have liked because I waited until after Thanksgiving. However, I felt the trip provided a worthwhile study in color and light.

Notice how all these photos stay in a blue & yellow color range, reflecting the coolness of a northern beach yet the warmth of the afternoon sun. It appears to be a quiet, quaint area; however Summer photos would give the viewer a very different impression.

Subtle reflections of light create a warm and inviting feeling in a cold and dreary climate.
