One of the best things about living on Long Island is the fact we're surrounded by water. Even better than that, we live in a harbourside peninsula with sea on both sides. As I drive to the shops or pick up the boys from school, I get to see the sea - and there is something remarkably uplifting about it, even on a cold winter's day.
We go down to the seashore in all seasons and I love capturing its beauty on film. Whether it is the icy, still waters of Long Island Sound in winter,
or the fierce Atlantic rollers on the South Shore.
In the summer, we swim in it....
...in the spring and autumn, we paddle in it...
...and in the winter we just walk on the beach and marvel at how the sea can freeze over.
And sometimes - as in last night when I took this rather blurry iPhone shot of the harbour after a rainstorm - I just catch a glimpse of it as I'm walking through the town, and it lifts my spirits.
