On July 2, 2014, I was fortunate to be invited to the top of Marblehead Light. The climb was more difficult than I imagined with a sharply winding staircase within the small diameter of the lighthouse’s central column. Once atop Marblehead Light, the view more than made up for any difficulties.
I’ve shared a number of images from this unique vantage point but none in this direction. I was fortunate to have some clouds to offset the blue sky of this Summer day and, for a brief moment, the clouds blocked the sun leading the sun rays forming below. I composed this image to include the rays over Childrens Island and the less noticed part of Chandler Hovey Park from my vantage point atop Marblehead Light.
