Well it’s back to Kittery, Maine for today’s image. This is the pier located at the tip of Gerrish Island, right next to Fort Foster which I posted about the other day. I took this shot last week on one of the windiest days I can remember. That plus the cold temperatures made it almost impossible for a) my tripod to stay still, and b) me to try more than one angle/composition for this shot. I had on my super-macho fingerless gloves with the foldover top, a hat, and as many layers as I could get on, and yet it was still miserable. I’m definitely pleased with how this shot came out, but I do want to come back and try some different compositions on a day where the wind and weather will make it easier on me. This time of year in the northeast certainly requires an extra dose of “suck it up” if you want to get out there and still get your shots, and I apparently forgot to take mine last week.
