A few weeks ago I spent some time in Ogunquit, Maine with my family for our annual end of summer vacation at the beach. While this is always a family vacation first and foremost, I did make some time to get out and do some shooting, mostly at sunrise before the rest of the family was up. I’ve been coming to Ogunquit since I was a child, and have photographed it countless times. This location at the entrance to Footbridge Beach, however, is one that I’ve paid far less attention to than other more popular spots, so I felt it was time to give it some love.
It’s a great little spot with the long footbridge across the Ogunquit River just to the left of this scene, and I was really fortunate to also find this small boat up on the grass which made for a great foreground interest. I tried a variety of compositions with the boat as the sun started to rise, and this one was easily my favorite. It was a beautiful sky that morning, and I was also able to get some reflections of its colors in the river. Now if I could’ve only done something about those mosquitos.
