020707 - Harkness State Park


Harkness State Park is in the coastal town of Waterford next to nearby New London. It has acres of land with a mansion, a long strip of beach, and ample parking. The front gates close at sunset, but if you have a fishing license and a rod and reel, you can stay all night on the grounds. Go figure.

There are one or two boardwalks that lead down to the beach area. This one was taken late afternoon. I liked the pattern of the boards, the distance perspective and the two people just happened to be at the crest of the boardwalk. I used a split graduated color filter to emphasize the late afternoon sun.

The image was captured with a Nikon F3, 35-70mm f/2.8, Kodachrome 64, Bogen tripod.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
