This is a more recent image captured from an outing on July 21 when I had gone out hoping to capture lighting or rainbows from a storm passing to the south but came away with a picturesque view of Devereux Beach with clouds and surf accentuating the fading light of the sun.
I had been watching the sky last night at around 7pm and couldn't decide if we might have a nice sunset and ended up opting to stay in. But then I heard a clap of thunder and checked the radar to find a bright red spot passing just south of Marblehead and jumped in the car. I drove to Devereux Beach and arrived to find the last light of a rainbow fading. Unfortunately, no lightning appeared as I had hoped. Instead, I stayed until sunset and shot along the beach. I worked on three images when I returned home and [...]
Hurricane Teddy will miss the Eastern coast of the United States but is forecast to bring us high seas and strong winds that should create amazing surfing conditions today. According to surf-forecast.com, Devereux Beach is supposed to hit a perfect 10 rating tonight with 15 foot wave heights and low tide conditions. I will definitely be heading to the beach with my longest lens hoping to capture a few surfers taking advantage of the conditions... Surfs Up Marblehead!
On Wednesday, I headed out the door to chase storms at Riverhead (that shot is coming tomorrow) before making my way to Fort Beach in the hopes of capturing a rainbow (I didn't but got one at Castle Rock an hour later). While at Fort Beach, I wandered up and down Front Street in search of new compositions that did not rely on the Great Tree at the Fort. When i moved far enough over, I was able to hide the emptiness of Fort Sewall with some foliage while also lucking out with a scattered collection of boats at low [...]
Hard to believe that it was one month ago when I captured the best light of the summer at Devereux Beach. This was the night that I caught a full rainbow over the causeway and thought that would be the peak of light only to discover this incredible view of the Gold Coast on the shores of Devereux Beach twenty minutes later. This is the sixth image I will have shared from the hour spent running back and forth between the causeway and beach on June 24, 2020. I shot these two clouds from various angles and with differing compositions [...]
I mentioned in yesterday's post that last Wednesday's outing led to one of the best sunsets of the year - including an awesome rainbow over the causeway. I shared some of the rainbow shots last week but worked on the rest of the images from that night over the weekend. This is an image from the water's edge at Devereux Beach from when I arrived at 7:30pm. I was pretty happy with the dramatic light and cloud cover. Little did I know just how good the light would get.
No April Fools Jokes this year but rather a hopeful look forward to a similar beach party scene taking place at Devereux Beach this summer. Everytime I look at this image, I notice something new. Between the sunbathers on the beach, the swimmers in the ocean and those on the wet sand in between, there are endless micro scenes to explore.
On August 3rd, I was at Devereux Beach grabbing ice cream with my wife when a very nice sunset formed. It was low tide so I was able to get fairly far down the beach and took several images facing back toward the causeway. I then turned and noticed the first birds taking flight and headed toward me so I fired off a few shots hoping to catch them. I will often clone out a random bird or plane in an image if it doesn't offer anything to the composition. In this case, I thought the birds taking flight at [...]
I mentioned in yesterday's post that my wife and I had headed down to Neck Run for ice cream on Saturday night when a nice sunset began to form. After capturing the image looking back toward the parking lot, I wandered along the water line and stopped for this shot. Low tide created a beautiful reflection on the glowing sand at Devereux Beach with the pink clouds mirrored in the water and wet sand. The beach was fairly deserted for such a nice summer evening.
On Saturday night, my wife and I headed down to the Neck Run Cafe for after-dinner ice cream and a walk along the causeway. I had thrown my camera in the car (just in case) - the clouds did show some promise. As we finished up the scoops and turned back, I spotted the first hint of color in the evening sky. I grabbed my camera from the car while my wife stayed behind and headed down to the water's edge. The tide was at 0 feet and I had plenty of space to capture the whole of this low [...]
