I was honored to receive the Peoples Choice Award at the Marblehead Festival of Arts 2014 for this image – Storm Chasing at Chandler Hovey Park.
Here is a bit of background on the image:
I was down at the Pleon Yacht Club shooting across the harbor and hoping to capture the great cumulus clouds over the harbor when the sky turned ominously dark. I quickly left and headed to Chandler Hovey Park where I switched to an ultra wide angle lens and stood on a bench to capture the 7 images that would make up this final panoramic shot. It was difficult to appreciate the storm’s beauty at the time as I expected wind, lighting and rain to begin at any moment but the storm ended up missing us to the North and I came away with an incredible view of a storm forming over our lighthouse.
