Winter arrived in a hurry this week and the Long Island Sun Chasers reinforced why many of us think Winter is the best season for photography.

There is something awesome about being alone on a desolate wind swept beach and the photographers in this group do an excellent job of bringing those scenes back for everyone to see.

Below you will see a variety of postcard quality images that will really make you really appreciate our Island.

I am glad I waited an extra day this week so I could include a bunch of images of Friday’s spectacular sunrise.

Some of these might make a great last minute Christmas present, if you are interested in a print of any of the images below let me know and I can put you in touch with the photographer!

Have a great weekend!
