Every December, a shining star appears atop a crane in Marblehead as one of many local markers of the holiday season.  I’ve shot this star from State Street, the causeway and Chandler Hovey Park trying to find interesting compositions.  One year, I found a spot where the star seemed to hang over Abbot Hall tower…

This year, I ventured out on a very mild mid-December evening as a nice pink sunset formed over Marblehead Harbor.  I ended up walking the length of the causeway and stopped when I reached this point.  The position of the shining star to the right of Abbot hall and the perfect light off the homes along Cliff Street with the pink light of sunset made for a scene that was hard to pass up.
