On Sunday, I was working on my first Wednesdays in Marblehead talk set to take place at one of our yacht clubs this Wednesday. As I took a break from the slideshow, I turned to Facebook and realized that I had almost missed the fall regatta of model sailboats at Redd’s Pond. Thanks to Kristen’s Facebook photos, I quickly jumped in the car and made it to Redd’s in time to capture the last few minutes of racing.
The first thing I noticed was the foliage at Old Burial Hill and walked around the pond to find the composition which would allow me to include the tree as a prominent background element. Then it was a matter of waiting for the wind and enough sailboats to make for a balanced image.
