A Block Island Thanksgiving (Gabby)

I decided not to venture home to North Carolina for Thanksgiving this year because winter break is right around the corner. Instead, I spent Thanksgiving with my friend Gillian at her house on Block Island, a small island 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. This was my first trip out to Block Island. I have been in school in the Northeast for four years, but have not had access to a car, so I have only started exploring the area this year.

Block Island has very few tall trees but is covered with bushes and red winterberry at this time of year. The cliffs overlooking the ocean are steep and jagged - offering spectacular views of the sunset and the surrounding shoreline. While I was pretty busy eating and visiting with Gillian's friends and family, I snuck off with my camera for a few moments.

On Thursday, I noticed that the sky was darkening and that gaps in the clouds were allowing the sun to peak through on occasion. I walked out to a surrounding overlook and waited for a while as the sun began to play on the shoreline. Finally, I took this shot with my 28-135mm lens at 28mm. The colors were beautiful and while it is not a very artistic shot, it captures the mood of the island on a fall day.

Next weekend, I will be going out to Plum Island in MA to look for Snowy Owls - hopefully I will have pictures to share!

Hello Gabby,
Very nice! It would be great if you gave more details about the picture and camera. Are you using HDR compositing?

What (if any) PS processing do you do on the picture?

Now, if this is right out of the camera - congratulations.

What camera is it?
