This is my favorite time of year for sunrise shoots. The sun rises at 7:15am usually with mild temperatures and the frequent storms often bring great light.  With yet another storm forecast for Thursday afternoon, I figured conditions were absolutely perfect for a vibrant sunrise. I woke up at a reasonable time, headed to Hammond Park, and found still waters reflecting a whole lot of nothing…

The scene was kind of boring with lackluster skies and I kept hoping for some light as the timing of sunset approached. Just as 7:15 rolled around, a working boat decided to head out for the day. Normally the wake from the boats would cause me to lose precious minutes waiting for the water to calm again but this time the wake added some interest to the composition.  The sky brightened a bit and I came away with a decent image to share. I zoomed in and caught the name of one of the moored sailboats – Nirvana. Even on a lackluster morning, this town really is nirvana.

I decided to host a Contactless Pop Up sale this weekend on my 2021 Calendars and Wednesdays in Marblehead books. Come by 21 Shetland Road on Saturday from 9am to 2pm or Sunday from 10am to 2pm to pick up a copy and say hi.
