On the day after Valentine’s Day I made little to trip to the beach and came across this Snowy Owl. I grabbed a couple of shots. I am not a wildlife photographer, but I’ll take a few photos when the opportunity shows it self.

Ice Boats on Mecox Bay

Thursday January 18th I made a last minute check of the ice on Mecox Bay and found the ice boaters out. Most were  getting the last day of ice racing in before the weather warmed up. The racers were excited because the ice was smooth and fast. Trying as many runs as they could before the days light vanished.

Sixteen Foot Kayak Frame

A hobby of mine is building skin on frame kayaks. Recently I finished two kayaks both sixteen feet long. I built them simultaneously and when the frames were finished I photographed one frame. Perching the frame on Shinnecock Jetty was an ideal background to display the framework. Shortly when the weather permits both kayaks will be photographed in there finished state.
