Foto Friday – June 24, 2011

Around the time that I started my weekly Foto Friday postings, I came across a Twitter hashtag of #FriFotos, a hashtag used by twitter users the world over to share their photos on a certain theme.  These themes are typically announced mid-week by the #FriFotos host and garner a good following all day Friday.  I have chosen in the past not to align my Foto Friday post with the same theme as these posts were more for the sharing of the photos of my choice, rather than limiting myself to photos than to fit in with the theme.

This week I have chosen to follow in the lines of the theme, with the theme being “Blue.”

Today’s photo comes from my 2009 New England Road Trip and the Connecticut coast, a mere few hours from where I currently live less than 2 years later.  As Mike, Bryan and I left our hotel in Bridgeport, Connecticut that morning, we took our time and enjoyed the Connecticut coast on the Long Island Sound.

This photo really grabbed me as a very true depiction of the stereotypical New England coastline, with the grasses and coastal rocks in the foreground, the jetty and colonial house in the background.  These views are common up and down the entire New England coast, from Connecticut to Rhode Island, Massachusetts to Maine and they never fail to disappoint.

Camera – Canon EOS Rebel XT | Lens – Tamron 11-18mm | Exposure –  F11 – 1/200

Would love your feedback on the photo and please feel free to share any other New England coast photos you might have, here in the comments!

  • Such a simple photo that still makes me look at it for a while. I love the few colors that in the picture yet so many different shades of them. 

    • Thanks Jaime! It is one of those pictures I love, but if I could go back and take it again, I know exactly what I would change…Glad you liked it!
