Photographing Sandy Hook Beach, NJ

Recently I’ve discovered Sandy Hook beach, in New Jersey. As it turns out, it’s the perfect place to simply be and breathe.

I’m fascinated by this place. In a way, Sandy Hook beach has it all: nature, history, and views of the NYC skyline; it also offers a momentary escape from everyday reality, especially during this neverending coronavirus pandemic.

In this post, I’d like to share a few images and short clips from my trips to this magical place:

[Note: some of my Sandy Hook images are posted on my Twenty20 page and on my Alamy page.

Sandy Hook beach also offers beautiful views of New York City, Verrazzano Bridge, The Rockaways, and NY Harbor.

Sandy Hook beach can be quite deserted in the offseason, offering a much-needed immersion in nature; sometimes, on cloudy and breeze days, temperatures remind me, just slighty, of a mild early-summer day in Sylt, Germany (btw, the island of Sylt, Germany, is a must-visit, just bring warm clothes)

Sandy Hook beach is not only about nature, but also about history. There’s a snapshot of the military base and the historic Sandy Hook lighthouse.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
