I went out twice yesterday and left my gear in the car ‘just in case’ only to completely miss the potential for a nice sunset; let alone a rainbow and lightning that I saw posted later that night. Misses like that where I stand looking up at the sky and realizing it’s too late to do anything but marvel at the light make me appreciate the times that I do make it to the right spot at the right time.
This shot comes from mid-August and followed another stormy day in Marblehead. I arrived at Fort Beach a little before 7pm when it was still light out and would be for a while. I captured a few compositions of Fort Beach and the Neck as the storm clouds created a great backdrop for Marblehead Light. I ended up lucking out with a great sunset that night but this earlier shot was another favorite that hadn’t yet seen the light of day.
