Reflections of a Full Harbor

  • The still water of Marblehead Harbor creates perfect reflections of boats and their masts under a partly cloudy sky just before sunset on a September evening

On Monday, I shared an image of pre-sunset light bathing Marblehead Harbor in a soft gold. I had captured the shot from the Dolphin Yacht Club just as our dinner was brought out to the balcony. Upon seeing that light (and with two plates not yet out), I excused myself and headed down to the water for a few more quick shots.

As it turned out, the light quickly disappeared as the sun hid behind cloud cover but the still water of the harbor created some really nice reflections. I shot a tight crop and a wide angle view of this scene with boats filling the harbor and reflected in the water. The single formed cloud above added some interest to the otherwise lackluster sky.
