On Tuesday, October 14, I had made the decision to head out for a sunset shoot and chose Marblehead Neck as my destination.  It had been a while since I had explored one of the public ways on the Neck in particular and so I drove down to Harvard Street and then down to the water’s edge.  I ducked under the closes dock and set myself up between the docks on Marblehead Neck as the sun began its slow descent.

With Marblehead harbor still relatively full of boats, I composed this image to include both docks and Abbot Hall seen on the distant shore.  For a few moments, the light of the sun reflected off the dock to the right and added just the right element to the foreground.
