Sea Smoke Gloucester
Sea smoke is an amazing phenomenon and an absolute blast to photograph. But it takes some mental preparation. As you know, the sea smoke manifests itself when the air temperature is colder – much colder – than the temperature of the water. Here on the northeast coast, that usually means that the air temperature is near zero, with a wind-chill of well below. And that was the case on Saturday morning.
This image is one of several from the last Saturday’s shoot with my friend, Steve Perlmutter. It was Steven who convinced me to go — to wake two hours before dawn, drive 40 minutes to the coast and wander around in the frigid cold trying to make magic.
