Pern's Ponderings

Check here periodically for my musings on photography. In this space, we'll explore how I achieved particular photographs, tips and tricks to get the most out of your camera or even just my thoughts on the world at large. 

When September Ends Pt. 2

We're now more than a week into the month of October and I can't tell you how many people are still asking me about September's incredible surf conditions. One surfer, David Benjamin of Bridgeport, Conn., called me late last week just to reminisce about the epic surge. 

"It's still at the front of my mind no matter what I'm doing," he said. "Wasn't it unbelievable?" 

That it was. I find myself grabbing my binoculars every morning and looking out off my back deck toward Deep Hole in Matunuck, R.I., to see what the conditions are like and the sense that the waves will be back up today hasn't worn off yet. 

But, while I continue waiting to see some stacks when I pick up the optics, I've got plenty more images to go through to keep me occupied.
