An Epic Morning of Sea Smoke

My excitement started to build last night as I knew that the next day could quite possibly produce the best sea smoke we have seen around here in a very long time. When I woke up this morning at 6:00 A.M. the temperature was -9 degrees. The lowest I have ever seen it! It’s been close before, down around -5 but -9 wow!. Over here at the coast of Massachusetts it rarely gets that low especially not in February. Another photographer at work met me out near the Twin Lights of Thacher Island. There was so much sea smoke the light houses were obscured most of the time. The sun was already up but was hidden behind the rising wall of sea smoke. I decided that since the walk was a little long out to the rocks I would just shoot with my Canon 5DMK3 and the 70-200 F2.8 L. It made hiking out to the point easier.

As the sea smoke moved around it created interesting formations and gave us so many opportunities to photograph. Same subject but oh so different.

Then the sun broke through and made these incredible epic scenes with the sun and the sea smoke.

We then started to drive around Rockport looking for other shots.

This is my favorite shot. It’s of the end of Bearskin Neck.

After scouting around a bit we headed back over to Eden Rd. to see if the sea smoke had lifted a bit. And it had!.

The end of a truly epic morning photographing on Cape Ann.
