Magical Illumination

  • Flares light up the harbor and reflect in the still water on the Fourth of July displaying the magical illumination that occurs annually before the fireworks show

With temperatures due to pass 90 today and tomorrow, I was in the mood to look back at images from an equally warm Fourth of July this year. I have only shared one image of the harbor illumination that took place that night and thought this image would be a nice way to start the week.

The sight of red flares lighting up the harbor remains my favorite part of the July 4th festivities in Marblehead. This year, I was able to capture the magical illumination on both sides of the harbor from my spot along the causeway and with a super telephoto lens. This shot of boats crowding the harbor and the mix of red and green light reflecting in the water from the flares and lighthouse was an instant favorite.

    Giving the light house the distinction it deserves. A rock in this town we all have memories attached to. Nice job, perfection as always!
