A couple of weeks ago, an unbelievable dawn erupted in the sky over Marblehead.  I left the house as the purple light hit its peak and made a beeline for Preston Beach hoping to catch some of the magical color in the clouds.  By the time I parked and got out of the car, the purple had disappeared but, a minute or two later, a golden color exploded overhead.

I quickly composed this image to capture as much of the golden dawn as I could.  With the calm ocean and few waves, the wet sand only served to accentuate the color and even the dry sand took on some of the morning color.

I spent more than a half hour at the beach that morning capturing the dawn, then a sunrise near Ram island (I shared that soon after returning home) and another shot that I’ll finish off the week with.  It was a nice way to start the day.
