This year’s Jackson Cup featured great conditions for racing but very difficult ones for photographing. Taking place in the midst of our nearly constant clouds and rain, I was disappointed with the very flat light I had to deal with for much of the race. When the clouds did break and allowed the sunlight to spill through, I made sure to take advantage and, luckily, got some nice grouping of boats at times.

In this one, a group of boats with red and yellow sails crosses in front of Abbot Hall and the Boston Yacht Club. The sun peaked at this point and lit the entire scene in wonderful and rare light on an April filled with clouds and rain.
