Low Tide…

After too long of a pause, I finally was able to go out into the Gulf with the Clam Boogie crew again, to photograph them while they were planting and harvesting clams. The tide was extremely low. I think it was the morning after a full moon. The water was cold enough so that it was still wet-suite time, and I was sure glad that I had mine on, even though my struggle getting into and out of it always takes on epic proportions.

Above Brett and Jeffrey are winching a bag of clams on board, and below Brett is getting a bag ready to be hauled on board.

  1. Love the framing and light in these. I hope getting into and out of the wetsuit is not too much of a struggle!

  2. Hey, thanks, Simon! Well, Getting into it is ok, but getting out of it by myself is a pretty hilarious and exhausting process.
