What an incredible Fourth of July! I took part in the Artisans Marketplace at Abbot Hall on Saturday from 10am until 5pm and felt like half the town stopped by to look at prints, buy books or just introduce themselves. It was an incredible experience. As soon as I packed up, I raced home and rode my bike to Marblehead Neck where friends had invited us to a last minute Fourth of July party.
I had decided on a plan for this year’s fireworks show beginning with the harbor illumination to be captured from Corinthian Lane. I then walked quickly to Cove Lane to shoot the start of the fireworks before running back to our friend’s house for view of the Marblehead fireworks from their cupola. It was a challenging shoot as the light kept changing and I had to adjust settings quickly to keep up. When all was said and done, I was pretty sure I had at least one decent shot for the night.
I rode my bike home (past the bumper to bumper traffic on the Neck) and was thrilled to see three nice images of the Marblehead fireworks on the Fourth of July. I worked on each one to bring out the detail and colors and have all three shared here for you to view.
I’ll share the harbor illumination image in the days to come.
