Beach

Gold Coast, Marblehead

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 [...]

Summer at the Beach

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.

Beach Party

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.

Taking Flight at Devereux Beach

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 [...]

Glowing Sand at Devereux Beach

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.

Low Tide Sunset

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 [...]

Year of Rainbows

I think I captured more rainbows in 2012 than I have in all other years combined. This was truly the 'year of rainbows' in Marblehead and, on this particular evening - June 23, 2012 - I headed to Devereux Beach after a brief shower. The lifeguard chairs had recently been painted red and I decided to compose this shot of the red lifeguard chair lit by the setting sun and the rainbow perfectly formed at its feet.

Golden Light on Cove Beach

I spent the weekend catching up on almost 1,500 photos taken over the past few weeks (mostly of the kids including lots of baseball and lacrosse shots). I also had a few landscapes hidden amongst them including this one of Cove Beach at the end of the public way at Cove Lane on the Neck. I visited this spot on June 2nd, 2019 when the clouds promised to break just right and create a nice sunset. The light show wasn't quite what I had hoped for but it did cast some nice golden light on the water and shore of [...]

May Day at Devereux Beach

With cloudy skies dominating the weather for much of April and May, my photography outings have been limited to a small handful. I decided to look through my 'to be posted' archive for past May shots that had not yet seen the light of day and found much of the same. Guess May really is a cloudy month... I stopped at this image captured on May 14, 2017 at Devereux Beach. On smaller devices, you might miss the three surfers in the water waiting for a few waves as the setting sun illuminated a patch of clouds overhead on this [...]

Ocean Wave

I spent New Years Day at Devereux Beach capturing wave after wave coming ashore as the dawn broke. I alternated between fast exposures to capture detail in the water and longer ones that highlighted the sense of movement in the ocean. This was one of my favorites from the set with an ocean wave about to curl onto itself before hitting the shore and the sand reflecting the brightness of the morning sky.
