May is usually synonymous with foggy days as warm weather slowly advances into Marblehead. This year was an exceptions with days and weeks of rain during what would be the ‘foggy season’. As I looked for an image to share today, I found this unique view of Gerry Island in the fog.
I had gone out on this early May day in 2012 chasing the fog at sunset and hoping the two atmospheric phenomenon would combine to form a stunning sunset. I explored Fort Sewall as the sun set (sadly, the fog became too thick to allow sunset’s light through) and then headed over to Gerry Island during what ended up being a mid-tide time.
With the fog enveloping Gerry Island and the land bridge disappearing into the water, I found the scene before me captivating. You can just make out some subtle sunset colors above the layer of fog over the island.
