Whether it’s sunrise or sunset, photographer Erica Eisele can be found on the beach chasing the sun.
”I venture out to beaches with the best views. Amagansett always has a gorgeous sunrise,” says Erica Eisele.
“I may have an unhealthy obsession with sunsets. I love that they’re always different and unique. When people see clouds coming, they run away thinking that it’s going to storm, while I’m excited and want to stay outside to see what the skies will look like. I will walk along the beach taking pictures no matter what the weather is like.
“I go with the flow and will take pictures of everything and anything. But nothing beats a summer sunset. There’s always something happening. Birds coming in and out of the frame, clouds changing positions, and crashing waves are fun to see through a lens.
“I venture out to beaches with the best views. Amagansett always has a gorgeous sunrise. Finding a location that lines up perfectly with the sun is my dream. Even after the sun drops below the horizon, there’s a beautiful shot of the afterglow when the colors pop and reflect on the water. When I’m not looking up at the sky, I try to focus on the people on the beach lit by the sunlight. But taking pictures of people has been more challenging than a sunset.”
