My favorite aspects of Summer sunsets are their long duration and the incredible color gamut that can be seen from start to finish.  Today’s image of Summer’s first breath was taken 10 minutes before yesterday’s wide view of deep purple colors over the harbor as seen from Parker Lane.

When I arrived at this spot, I was treated to a yellow-orange sun with light radiating off the low lying clouds and bathing the harbor in orange-blue light.  The rapidly changing colors allowed me to explore many different views from this one location – each slightly different thanks to a change in hue.

In the end, my favorites were the first and last images captured from Parker Lane on the first of many Summer sunsets in Marblehead.
