Ever since we moved to Marblehead, I’ve wanted to find piers to photograph.  Unfortunately, all of them seemed to be private and inaccessible.  Last week, I drove down Bradley Road to explore that part of town and, on a whim, made a turn down Mooring Road and found this great pier.  The seas were rough and I had arrived near high tide – couldn’t ask for a better sky though.  The shots of crashing waves weren’t quite what I had in mind so I put on a filter to cut down the light and allow for longer exposures.  The waves again turned to mist and, in this shot, look like tendrils reaching around the tiny rocks in the sand.

Technical: Canon 50D and EF-S 10-22 mm lens with 10 stop ND filter.  1 second exposure.
