July 21st brought with it incredibly dense fog that one local described to me as a ‘smokey sou’wester’. I began photographing the fog at Grace Oliver beach and then made my way around Beacon Street. When all of those compositions were exhausted, I made my way to Devereux Beach hoping for some foggy scenes along the ocean.
By the time I arrived, the sun had started to move closer to the horizon and, with the dense fog, it appeared huge in the diffused light. As I walked down the beach, I spotted this backlit scene of the Devereux Beach playground and stopped to compose this image. With the giant sun, orange light, silhouettes of kids playing and fog at ground level, I couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque view.
