On July 19th, we were invited aboard a friend’s boat to circumnavigate Marblehead Harbor. I was like a kid in a candy store taking shot after shot from the vantage point along the water and between boats. We moved to quickly for me to spot the names of the various boats and it was only when I zoomed in on this one that I spotted the name of the boat with the flag flying – Flying Colors.

With the composition of boats filling the empty parts of the sky and wispy clouds overhead due to the heat of the day, I thought this image worked to convey the feeling of motoring through Marblehead Harbor on a summer evening.
