On August 29, I headed to Chandler Hovey Park before dawn in order to capture the supermoon setting over Abbot Hall. As it happened, the moon set 30 minutes before sunrise and so I had plenty of time to explore other scenes in the dawn light. I took a few pictures of Marblehead Bell and Cormorant Rock as the light of the rising sun filled the sky with shades of orange and red.
I had actually turned back towards town when the sun finally rose and only noticed it by the strong reflection of light coming off the houses across Marblehead harbor. I quickly turned and set up this composition of the sun rising as a huge orange ball over Cormorant Rock. Hope this image gets your day off to a good start. By all reports, today is going to be another late Summer scorcher.
