When I go out to shoot the town of Marblehead, it is not uncommon for me to find at least five different compositions in good light and then have to select one to share and place others in the archive.  On this day, I had set up at the pier of the Pleon Yacht Club which offered me a number of photographic possibilities.  This week, I wanted to share five different images captured from 3:45pm to 4:05pm on Christmas in Marblehead.

First up was this shot looking across the harbor at Grace Community Church and St. Michael’s Steeple poking out from the tree line and above the houses along the water.  I don’t recall seeing so many working boats positioned in this part of the harbor during Winter and this composition quickly caught my eye as the light of sunset began to take form.
