On Sunday, June 8, I had headed out to Chandler Hovey Park before sunset to see if I could find some new compositions on that familiar ground.  As I arrived, I spotted a sundog to the left of the setting sun and quickly tried to find a good way to capture the usually fleeting rainbow-like effect.

Normally, I would have composed an image to include the full expanse of Marblehead Harbor but with Abbot Hall’s current red drape and scaffolding, I decided to look for a new way to showcase the sundog over Marblehead Harbor.

I ended up liking this view the best with Old North Church and the houses along the water serving as a great backdrop to the boats in Marblehead Harbor and the setting sun and sundog overhead.
