Now I fully admit I am a lover of a good sunset but every now and then I like to throw in a sunrise. Whats the best place to be to see one ? Well that’s none other than Montauk Light House. Every morning it is a pretty busy place, you have all the commercial and sport fishermen at work out in the tumbling atlantic, while on the shore you get to share the beach with the surfcasters braving the rough and cold waters for the perfect catch. On this one particular morning there was even a lone surfer and a seal coasting the shore riding the waves.
My summer this year was full of what felt like more downs than ups and it was over in the blink of an eye. I never got to do all the goals I wanted to , but I still have some time before winter sets in and I have to travel south. These three images I shot on Shelter Island are quite simple I know and yet they are extremely tranquil to me at the same time. The beach for me as I am sure it is for a lot of people is my escape, my meditation, my way to step away from it all.
