I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I had only learned about Wyman Cove recently and had decided to make my way there on Tuesday, June 17 at sunset to see what compositions might result. As I reached the end of the path leading to Wyman Cove, I stood and took in this scene before me. The grass formed a great frame for the scene with private piers poking out to the right. A wooded section of Salem can be seen beyond the water and the light was reflecting beautifully off the still waters in Salem harbor.
I had to wait a bit for the sun to pass behind the gathered clouds so that its light could be diffused. As soon as the sun reached a perfect position, this heron walked into my scene and added an unexpected element. I can appreciate why the Marblehead Cliffs Improvement Association is so proud of Wyman Cove and the views it offers at sunset.
