Big Breeze on the South Shore
These were taken I think in September 1999, during a pretty nasty storm on the south shore of Long Island, New York. The average breeze was about 35-45 knots a little higher in the puffs. The breeze was an easterly allowing these guys to reach straight out from the beach and back very very fast. I shot these photos with my Nikon N70 with a 70/300 zoom lens using Fuji film. The only thing I really needed was a tripod. It was so hard to keep the camera stable during shooting because of the breeze. I had the camera setup in autofocus mode with manual shutterspeed. I had to crank up the shutter speed in order to get these shots. I really gave my Epson 610 scanner a workout to get some of these shots blown up, the scanner is only 600dpi. It took alot of work in Photoshop to get them to look OK.
