The Beach

Let’s grow old together.
Let’s count the grains of sand in this vast paradise
Let’s compare notes with the stars in this corner
Where they seem to shine just for us, and we’re happy
To let them be our guiding lights for all those dreams
We have never seen, because those make for the most
Beautiful, unblemished memories.

Let’s pick shells and tiny pebbles
Let’s give names to rocks and smile
At our ever-growing silliness.
Let’s run barefoot splashing in the stillness
Of a day just gone down to rest.

Let’s never grow tired of each other.
Let’s keep this beach a hostage to our persistence.
To love and to hold and to care
To smile with the sun and to make faces at the moon
To chase the gulls and give them a chance
To make us believe. It’s all meant to be.

As the old ship comes back from the voyage
And throws anchor at the shore.
Let us be the ones to greet it at the lighthouse
Let us rejoice with the sweet notions
Of all being well and everyone finding their home.
Look into my heart. The beach knows.
We’re home.

Lightning Strike NY Harbor by Jay Fine

The Statue of Liberty hit by lightning. Striking!

The story behind the photograph:
This shot was captured during a major electrical storm. There was little wind and no rain which allowed me to stay safely inside and shoot from an open window. This was the 82nd exposure out of 150 made that night. The camera was mounted on a tripod, exposures made with a cable release for 5 seconds at f10. Except for a some minor level adjustments and a square crop this was what came out of the camera.

Today's photo comes from Cannon Beach, Oregon. If you click through to the blog post ( you can see a brand-new video I made while taking this shot, explaining my thoughts on composition while I take the shot.

I got my new tripod today so I just had to go out and give it a try - there were a few shots I've been itching to make for a while now - but long exposures at night just can't be done without a tripod.

A lot of my favorite photos are taken at night, so this album title was inspired by Vincent van Gogh: "I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day"

New tripod:
