On Friday evening, we decided to go to the Dolphin Yacht Club for dinner before going to the high school for the first football game of the season. I had brought my camera bag with me in large part to take photos of my kids near the water before the game and was glad I had done so when a break in the clouds allowed the sun to wash Marblehead Harbor in beautiful sunset colors.

The light almost perfectly covered the rows upon rows of boats moored in the harbor and I was able to pull up the shadows in the foreground to showcase the two flags caught in the breeze of an early September evening.
