Drive Along the Coast

March 07, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

On March 2nd, a nor'easter was responsible for significant damage along the coast. A lot of debris, large rocks, small rocks, sand covering everything including erosion to a lot of the parking lots as well as the beaches. When the waves came up, it sent a lot of the sand and rocks on to the roads along the coast which caused the road closures as well as traffic being redirected in many areas. Several homes in the area where inaccessible because they were surrounded by water.

Luckily, on Sunday, March 4th, I was able to safely drive on to the Boulevard and park my car so I could capture some great photos on at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. I later traveled up to Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine.

Hampton Beach was hit hard and traffic was no longer being allowed on to the Boulevard by the time I left around 3:30 pm in the afternoon as it was getting colder and even more windy. The original plan when driving in to Hampton Beach was to travel along Route 1 up the coast, but it was closed off. As I was standing on the sidewalk to capture the large waves crashing against the wall, more waves crashed and almost splashed me with ice cold water. The hazardous part of my job as a photographer but it was a must see and I'm so glad I was able to capture it.
