Last night, I watched the clouds take shape over Marblehead and decided to head out just before sunset to capture what promised to be a good show.  I had a tough time deciding on a destination and ended up at the Landing.  I shot from near the Harbormaster’s station until the light began to fade over the harbor and looked over my shoulder only to find an explosion of color over Crocker Park.

I ran up Mariner Lane, across Front Street and then behind the Herreschoff Castle to reach my favorite spot at Crocker Park.  I quickly set up the tripod and captured a few frames but was frustrated with the distance of the clouds from Abbot Hall.  I then ran down toward the gazebo and stopped when I spotted this composition including an empty bench that was reflecting the warm colors of this November sunset.

I framed the image to include the bench as well as Abbot Hall in the distance and was really happy with how the final image came out.
