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. 

Storm Surge

Winter Storm Stella was a dud from a snow perspective, but she brought with her a massive surge of double-overhead waves that sent barrel after barrel breaking off Monahan's Dock in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. At least two dozen surfers were in the water at any given time despite frigid temperatures that struggled to reach 20 degrees. One surfer left the water with ice covering his beard, but that didn't stop him from catching a few sweet rides.
