ADVENTURES IN MONTAUK: Website ReMix Anxiety Incurs Forced March Dawn Patrol.

Montauk's Twin Towers

Montauk's Twin Towers

With the Website Remix beta-launched, remainig kinks being massaged; with resultant drama building and tension mounting . . . there was no better time for a photo mission.  A quick check of the forecast Thurs night informed me that it would be a clear sunrise on Friday.  Accordingly, I took the long way home to my favorite coffee shop.   The skies did not disappoint (they rarely do) and there was a true tequila sunrise as I edged down to Old Montauk Highway before heading east.  Though the real-feel temps were again in the slap-your-face teens, I still encountered others.  On the northern side, a young Japanese man with his sister and father (I’m guessing) thought it exciting that I was there to photograph (I would’ve photographed them but I was equipped for landscape only).  He was very enthusiastic to be there himself and I mentioned he should come again on New Year’s Day as he would have many fellow Japanese to celebrate with.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the lighthouse I arrived just ahead of a young photographer there to document the same setting as I.  And why not?  It was a stunning, crystaline sunrise with a red-fringed horizon.  In addition to this, I’d wanted to swing by the southern side in order to check the Montauk Totem People’s rock tower dwellings at waters edge -- their architecture is incredible and they added a fantastical textural and spatial contrast to the sea and sky.  After about 45 minutes it was time to head on to the coffee shop . . . and back to the grindstone.  Admittedly, it takes some effort to drag myself out of bed at 5am, but why it takes such effort remains a mystery: this particular dawn patrol resulted in the Twin Towers image shown here.  "But wait!  There's more!!"  To see this and the other six keeper images I'm really happy about please check out my gallery over at Instagram
