Winter Wonderland / by sean hogan

It was nice to get down the beach this morning and see some swell. Its still small but there is definitely a little energy in the water. With some nice clouds on the horizon it was looking like a swim with camera could be fun. With the cold run over the freezing sand, the water seems to feel like a bath by the time you hit it. At first light, it was looking like the clouds were going to light up, but instead they just created a nice soft light for a good hour. Winter on the coast, not a bad place to be.

As a photographer and a surfer winter would have to be on of my favourite seasons. After you get over the cold mornings and chilly nights you start to appreciate the weather systems on a more intimate level. With the consistent swells, and the low lying sun producing favourable light, it all just seems to fall into place.
