Sit for a Spell

It seems like forever since I was last out to shoot around Marblehead but, looking back, it had only been two weeks.  I had the day off and, once the rain cleared, found picture perfect conditions for a mid-day outing. I crossed the causeway and then stopped at the public ways and some other spots along the Neck to capture views of the harbor and boats under cumulous clouds. Chandler Hovey Park was a mid-journey stop and I arrived to find myself one of only three people out enjoying the wind coming off the water. The views towards Abbot were [...]

Weathered Tree at Chandler Hovey Park

The theme for this week seems to be shaping up as 'images that I wasn't happy with but finally figured out the right processing this weekend'.  This black and white image of a weathered tree at Chandler Hovey Park was captured on September 1, 2013. I was drawn to this composition in which the tree is able to steal focus from Marblehead Light in large part due to the curve of the clouds mimicking the canopy of the tree.  That being said, the processing never really worked out. I tried this in color and black and white and while the [...]

Sea Smoke – Remastered

Just received a print order for one of my all time favorite images of sea smoke surrounding Marblehead Light and couldn't pass up a chance to remaster this shot from 2012. Here is the new version that I thought would be a perfect share as we face 90+ degree temperatures...again. 10 year retrospective coming tomorrow...

Chandler Hovey Park and the Harbor

The thing about aerial images is that you don't always need to fly 200 or 400 feet above the ground. I quickly learned that bringing the drone off shore and raised a bit off the water provided some incredible compositions as in this shot captured on July 26, 2017. Just a typical summer day in Marblehead with a perfect view of Chandler Hovey Park, the harbor and Abbot Hall in the distance

Lighting up the Clouds

Last Wednesday proved to be quite the outing and it began with a trip to Chandler Hovey Park in the hopes of capturing an oncoming storm. Before that storm would arrive, I spotted huge cumulus clouds behind Marblehead Light and grabbed this shot of the lighthouse backed by the intricate detail and patterns. The oncoming storm was a bust but the sunset more than made up for it.

Reflected Light

I have had another image from this photoshoot hanging in my home office since I captured it on June 7, 2016. That image features the whole of the lighthouse reflected in the collected pool of water along the path leading to the iron structure. This one was taken 5 minutes later and I decided to change my position to better capture the beautiful sky behind Marblehead Light while choosing to reflect the tree rather than the lighthouse.

Summer Nights in Marblehead

Sometimes as I go through my 'to be posted' archive, I come across an image and wonder why it didn't make the cut initially. In this case, I looked back and found that I had been playing with reflections of the lighthouse in a puddle of water from a recent rain and then later was treated to an even nicer sunset sky. B0th of those images were shared shortly after this outing on July 18, 2017 but this one stayed back. Looking at it now, all of the elements of summer nights in Marblehead seem to be perfectly captured in [...]
