People’s Choice Award – Marblehead Festival of Arts 2014

I went out this afternoon to chase after some big cumulus clouds that had formed over Marblehead harbor.  While I managed to get a few shots of those with a harbor still filled with boats, I began to feel a bit dismayed as grey skies seemed to swallow up those cumulus clouds.  I decided to head towards Chandler Hovey Park to see if I could get a better angle on the approaching cloud formation and saw this.

This image is a 6-shot panorama at 17mm which should give you some sense of the incredible size of the system.  It was incredible to witness and I was waiting for those 50+ MPH gusts to start (they never did).  Felt a bit like I was ‘storm chasing’ in the plains.  Decided to share this one tonight after spending a bit of time stitching it together.
