Colt State Park in Bristol, Rhode Island
July 8th, 2014 at 7:51PM

Some info on Colt State Park:

“Colt State Park’s 464 acres of lawns, stone walls, and curving drives along one of the state’s most spectacular shorelines stands in contrast to one of Rhode Island’s charming, compact, historic seaports, the Town of Bristol. On July 4th, every year since 1785, the town of Bristol puts on America’s team colors and hosts a national celebration that’s actually older than the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Fittingly, it was Rhode Island which closed that exercise, and the nation began.

Colt State Park is often referred to as the ‘Gem’ of the State Parks System. The entire western border of the park is an open panorama onto Narragansett Bay. Open year round, the park offers four miles of bicycle trails passing along the Bay and through 464 acres of groomed fruit trees, carefully nurtured flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Rich in history, it proudly displays ten large playfields, a historical museum, six picnic groves containing 400+ picnic tables, and its popular open air Chapel-By-The-Sea.”

*VIEW ON BLACK*

This location in Iceland has boomed in popularity as of late. It is a unique location for finding patterns, whether they be tidal or grass-covered dunes. We made it out here by happenstance on 3 different occasions due to the mountain being swallowed by clouds on the first two trips; on the third trip the mountain managed to make a cameo. In terms of subject matter this place is certainly recognizable, but there is enough foreground interest to work with to create at least something distinguishable. . .for now at least!

Enjoy!

Best On Black!

Here is a new photo from the La Jolla Coves, one of my all time favorite seascape locations. I was about knee deep in water when this was taken and a few waves came in and almost took my camera out. By the end of the shot I was waist deep in water, my camera is fine and the experience was amazing.

Thanks guys for taking a look at the photo

New on 500px : The Roses of Pemaquid Point by Jon_Secord by Jon_Secord

“The Roses of Pemaquid Point”

This is easily one of my favorite photos from my 3 week trip to Maine. These roses, Rosa Rugosa- also called Beach or Dune Roses, were everywhere along the coast. To say I was excited about this composition would be a huge understatement, and while I was taking the foreground exposures the moon started to rise over the horizon to my left, providing some beautiful light.

Such an amazing lighthouse and the geology on Pemaquid Point was some of the most interesting I have ever seen. Some of you may recognize this lighthouse- it was featured on the Maine state quarter
