Beat the Winter Blues

Image

The gray days of winter have arrived along with a polar vortex or two.  The days are short and night falls quickly but from the heights of the city to the seashore mother nature puts on a vibrant display.  Winter sunsets can be spectacular and I am lucky this year to be privy to a view high at Rock Center in New York City.  No two sunsets are ever the same and it is amazing how quickly the light changes. Sometimes if you hesitate you miss the moment.

Here are some winter beach images from South Carlina.  The low winter light is perfect for photographing wildlife.
