Wednesday began with thick fog over town and I wrote off the day as unlikely to offer many photo opportunities between the dreary weather and lack of foliage around town. As the day progressed, the sun burned through the fog and clouds began to appear in the western sky. I had a few errands to run so I threw the camera bag in the trunk and drove off to the Neck.
I circled the Neck not finding the image I wanted at Chandler Hovey Park and made it back down to Harbor Avenue just off the causeway where I spotted this composition. The surprisingly still water was reflecting the cumulous clouds overhead and creating a picture perfect scene of Marblehead Harbor at noon.
I had realized the other day that I tend to shy away from shooting in the middle of the day as the light at sunrise and sunset is almost always more rewarding. Wednesday’s drive across the causeway proved to me that these midday images are worth striving for as well.
