Sunset in Spring

In early Spring 2013, I was hankering to try out my new lens before an upcoming trip. It was an upgrade from the kit lens I’d been using for almost five years. The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 HSM lens allowed me to go wider and also at f/2.8 was great for low light experimentation.

And where to best test drive new gear in New England than at a sea-side community. So we headed to dinner and an evening at the beach about hour north of Boston into Maine.

That afternoon it had been cloudy and sprinkling, so we weren’t sure what I’d be able to expose.

But like my father taught me, clouds are a photographers best friends that create mood and bounce the golden light like no fill-in screen can match. The clouds more than obliged that night.

Here are some shots from that evening as the clouds scattered over the Atlantic.
