On the same day that I captured yesterday’s image of the last light on a harbor filled with boats, I had gone out to explore a few other areas in town with a birds eye view.  When I checked the tides after leaving the house and saw that we were close to the low tide mark, I decided to drive the short distance to Surf Street and fly over Preston Beach.

Preston is easily my favorite Marblehead beach.  At low tide, it has the smoothest sand and it is a 10 minute walk from our house.  As I parked the car, I noted the angle of the sun and hoped I would be able to capture some long shadows if the beach was full.  As luck would have it, the beach had plenty of sunbathers and I flew just offshore and angled the camera to focus on the shadows and the gentle waves coming to shore.
