Summer, Surf, Sand and Sunrises: Early Morning Photographs of the New Jersey Shore

If you mention the New Jersey shore, people may think of busy beaches and all kinds of fun activities:  Swimming, riding bicycles or surreys on the boardwalk, playing miniature golf, or going to the arcade or amusement park.  Their mouths are likely to water at the thought of their favorite shore foods: curly fries, fudge, saltwater taffy, frozen custard, pizza, churros, caramel corn, and the list goes on.

The bustle of an afternoon at the beach or an evening on the boardwalk is quite different from the peaceful, calm beauty of an early morning at the shore.  For photographers, the early morning is wonderful for great light, beautiful sunrises, and endless possible images of sand, water, piers, etc.  I took all of the following images this summer, between late July and the end of August.  I have included photographs from four New Jersey beaches:  Cape May, Ocean City, Atlantic City, and Margate.  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the sunrise and the salty air!  To see more of my photographs, or to purchase a print, visit my online ETSY store HERE.
