Winter Rye

A photo essay from Rye Harbor, Rye, NH by Ray Larose

These images were captured on a frigid morning in the winter of 2014 along the coast of Rye, NH. I absolutely adore the coastline in the winter – when there are no tourists and just the brave local souls enjoying the blistering winter winds.


It was my first outing with my Leica M2 and I was looking for somewhere interesting to shoot my first roll on my first film Leica – this was the result of that roll.
