Shipwreck on Nauset Beach

Nauset Beach, Orleans, on Christmas Day

Diane and I have a tradition of walking on Nauset beach every Christmas Day afternoon.  Being a photographer, I always carry at least some of my gear.  Christmas 2003 I created two of my best selling images, both with my new 3 megapixel point and shoot.  That was a defining moment in my photography.  Shortly after, I purchased a Canon Rebel digital SLR, and I haven’t used film since.

This Christmas, we again walked Nauset, heading toward the remains of a schooner that a nor’easter had washed up the previous month.  I had photographed the piece a few days after the storm when it was still at the edge of the surf.  A month later, it was now high on the beach and rolled over, exposing the ribs, pegs and planking.

On this second day of the new year I want to wish everyone  a happy, healthy, and prosperous  2011!

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
