Behind the Lens: Rocky Sakonnet

Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, Rhode Island
This piece sold this week and I do hope the collector enjoys it!
Sakonnet Point is a picturesque section of the small town of Little Compton, Rhode Island. The Atlantic Ocean stretches out to the South and nearby Newport to the West. There are fishing boats, lobsters for sale and a long breakwater to walk on if you have the right shoes.
Sakonnet Point lighthouse had just finished a much needed refurbishment when I visited on this August evening.  It was windy and warm, a nice break from the humid summer we had just experienced. The lighthouse is not open to the public so you must take your shots from shore or from a boat. This was taken from the Sakonnet Point Path just before sunset.
I have about 60 images from this evening, but this one captured the elements that night: choppy water and foamy white waves hitting the rocky shore that the beacon in the distance warned about.
There are many reasons people visit Little Compton in the summer and this peaceful area, I am sure, is one of them!
