Sandy Hook in B&W

In my posts you will see a lot of photographs from Sandy Hook Beach in New Jersey. There are few reasons for that – a. Its very close to where I live, b. every time I have gone there I have got atleast 1 unique shot and c. there are plenty more opportunities there in terms of flora and fauna as well.

Last Friday I woke up early at around 4:30 so decided to drive back and catch the Sun rise. I check the weather and it seemed great. There were supposed to be broken clouds and that is perfect for sunrise because that gives a lot if unique opportunities in terms of light. But unfortunately it wasn’t my day. When I started from home it looked promising but when I reached, there was a lot of fog. Visibility must be less than 1/3 of a mile. I thought since I am already here will just wait it out and hope it might clear up. I was there for an hour and a half and got nothing. Well not exactly nothing….

It occurred to me that this might be perfect for Black and White images..

  1. Man, I know that scenario well, Karan. My favorite spot for sunrises is a half hour drive which isn’t bad, but the conditions always seem to deteriorate with each mile as I approach the site.
    But nice save with the monotone strategy. The conditions were good and those are some very nice beach studies.

    • Thanks Steve. Tho I don’t know a lot about B&W .. but it seemed like a good idea, I did not want to come back empty hand 🙂
