Last Saturday I had a rare summer Saturday with no weddings or events. I decided, if all worked out, to make a late evening run to the coast. Early in the day weather reports were looking bland for photos but nice for hanging on the beach. After dealing with some family challenges, I checked the weather again around three. Possible thunderstorms all around with a front moving through around five.
Conditions were looking better for photography. When I checked the weather again around four everything had escalated and I could see the possibility of an epic sunset and blue hour – if, and only if – everything came together perfectly.
Conditions deteriorated quickly.Violent thunderstorms, cloud-to-ground-lightening and 60-80 mph winds were expected. I was getting excited.
Sunset on the coast was at 8:15. Low tide around 8:45. The storm front was expected to pass offshore sometime between 8 and 8:30. Almost perfect conditions.
At 5:30 I rushed through packing and hopped in the car for a 1.5 hour drive to the coast. I got to the end of my little road and realized I had forgotten my glasses. In the time it took me to run into my house and get my glasses the skies opened up. Torrential rain between me and the car. I ducked my head and ran.
On Route 9 there were hundreds and hundreds of cars pulled off the road. Big rain, small hail and a bit of wind stopping them. After 10 miles the weather alerts were telling Henniker residents to stay indoors and expect the worst. No way was I driving back home in that. Time to push on through the front. The rain finally slowed.
Getting off the Interstate at the Ogunquit/York exit the road was spanned by an incredible double rainbow. Another at the beach. The next hour was an incredible display of wind, waves, quickly-moving clouds, and light. I made my way from the rivermouth north for maybe a quarter mile. Every ten minutes and 100 steps bringing new light and colors. A friend commented on one of the rainbow images “Nature always comes to you some how.” I told him “Just the opposite my friend . . . I’m always watching for the right conditions, then running to catch them.” Saturday it worked perfectly. It was a great evening. I hope you enjoy the images.
