In early May I headed out at dawn in large part to capture the tree in bloom along Washington Street. As I left the house, I spotted the sun beginning to rise and a brilliant red glow reflecting off the clouds. I quickly decided on a stop at Hammond Park. I grabbed the camera (no time for a tripod) and adjust settings as the sun began to disappear into the clouds. As luck would have it, I caught the September Song heading out of Marblehead harbor on a lobstering expedition under the rising sun.
