Postcard from Maine (5)

Standard

4-20-14 Sandy7BW

A favorite of mine. Special conditions when Hurricane Sandy brushed the coast. This is from Sand Beach looking south along the shore toward the Loop Road and Otter Cliffs. Longer lens for two reasons a) for safety’s sake – even on the steps that lead from the parking lot down to the beach it was pretty dangerous with waves as high as my waist, and b) a longer lens compresses the scene compositionally, helping isolate only those elements that add to the strength of the photograph. In this case I used my 70-200mm f4 L at 200mm. For those interested, here’s the EXIF:

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Lens: EF70-200mm f/4L USM Shot at 200 mm
Exposure: Auto bracket exposure, Shutter priority AE, 1/500 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200

    You caught the waves perfectly to complement the composition. It must have been quite a sight to see the sea on this day. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I hadn’t seen this photo before, Dave. Any chance that I can get a copy–same size as the others/ It’s terrific!

  3. Great depth, drama and movement – and black and white highlights this and gives the picture a great graphic effect.
    I hope you’re about to get back on track?

I'd love to hear from you...
