One of the reasons I love the ocean so much is I feel I always come home a new person. The ocean has always brought a sense of renewal, joy, and comfort to me since I grew up on the water. The salty air and water always cured whatever might be ailing me.
The ocean evokes many emotions, for some, it's a place of excitement and thrill. For others, it's a place of relaxation, wonder, and discovery. There is something about the ocean that brings peace and washes away pain giving hope that better days are coming. I hope when you look at my images, they bring you comfort, peace, and encouragement that there is happiness on the other side of pain.
As you look at these images feel the warm sunshine beaming down upon you, feel the soft grains of sand beneath your feet, taste the salty sea as it splashes over you, and feel the wind in your hair giving you hope for your journey ahead.
All of my images are shot on the east end of Long Island, NY. Being in this part of the Island I am surrounded by an abundance of coastline that is rich in texture and color. This provides me the opportunity to share this scenery with you.
I hope that those who may not be able to take a trip to the ocean can find comfort, joy and encouragement by displaying my images in their home or businss and are moved the same way I was when I was creating them.
