Friday brought some unseasonably warm weather and a nice swell to Fire Island, with a sunrise temperature of 48 degrees making it feel more like Spring than mid Winter.

Not that it mattered to Long Island Surf Photographer and contributor Russ LaScala, who chose to put on his wetsuit and deal with 38 degree winter surf instead.

These images were taken in front of Robert Moses Field 5 with a Nikon D7100, SPL waterhousing, and a Nikkor 18-55mm.

Russ is also an exhibiting fine art photographer with Long Island Photo Gallery.  See his online portfolio or stop into Long Island Photo Gallery in Islip to see what he currently has on display.
