Try, Try & Try Again
Back in 2009 I learned about a broken pier somewhere at the Jersey Shore. Not knowing exactly where it was I went searching for it and finally found it by looking at a satellite map online. It is located at Corson’s Inlet, at the southern end of Ocean City and is now a very popular photography subject. My first trip to the pier was to capture sunrise. I was hoping that something magical would happen with the sky & light. Unfortunately, the first few attempts did not play out the way I had hoped. I knew the location had great potential and resolved that I would have to keep trying to get what I was after. Even the tides come into play since the vantage points became restrictive during high tide. I also included a late day and night shoot in my attempts. My most recent, 6th trip has been the best yet and I think I am getting closer to what I was looking for years ago. Here I used a 6-stop neutral density filter to slow down the shutter and soften the clouds and surf. Note that I have added the dates in the title area of each image.
