Every year around mid-September, many of the beaches near us begin to allow dogs again. As we visit these beaches quite frequently during the summer, and are forced to do so without the dog, my wife and kids jump at the opportunity this time every year to hit the local beach scene with the dog in tow. On this trip, like many others, I also brought the camera and tripod and did some shooting while the dog was running around. This is the beach on Plum Island, and is one of several stone jetties along the coast. This is one of the larger ones, and allows many different compositional possibilities, although for this one, I chose a fairly straightforward comp. And for whatever reason, I just like the simplicity of the final product.
