On Saturday night, I once again chased a promising sunset across the causeway to Marblehead Neck and ended up on Parker Lane. From there I set up my ‘real’ camera at the top of the stairs and also decided to fly my drone overhead as I wondered which might offer the better composition. I ended up taking two different shots within three minutes of each other and still can’t decide which view I prefer.
The shot of this Marblehead Sunset by land has much better color and detail in the sky and the choice of a longer effective focal length served to push together the boats and distant shore with Abbot Hall. The aerial view offered a more unique angle and better separation of the boats in Marblehead harbor as well as slightly more interesting reflections on the water.
So, to borrow a line from Paul Revere, which do you prefer? Comment with a 1 if by land or 2 if by air.
