Dolphin Dawn

We have been fortunate to be members of the Dolphin Yacht Club for several years and have enjoyed dinners and social events there. A few years ago, I was offered the opportunity to display some of my photographs in the club and always smile when I open the door and see one of my prints looking back at me. It dawned on me (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) at a recent party that the Dolphin would offer the perfect vantage point for capturing the dawn and sunrise over Marblehead Harbor. A few texts later, I was granted permission to shoot [...]

Dawn Reflections

One last image from Saturday morning's incredible dawn outing. I had been watching this one working boat move on its mooring and, when it hit a certain spot in its rotation, I spotted reflected light coming off the bow. I waited for the boat to go through its morning rotations once more and lucked out with this capture of nearly peak light in the sky and the reflections coming off the boat and water. The three empty moorings in the foreground perfectly broke up the pink-purple light. I'll relegate the last 3 keepers to my 'to be posted' archive so [...]

The Sun Also Rises

I warned you that I came away with 12 keepers from the incredible dawn on Saturday morning. Here are the next 4 in the series. These images capture the full spectrum from the first light at 5:11am to the sunrise at 5:38am. During that time, I shot from various spots along the stairs at Crocker Park leading to the float (which should be installed in a few more weeks).   I couldn't have asked for better light on this early spring morning as the colors helped me with a wide range of compositions. I hope you agree this image of [...]

Explosion of Color

I had last gone out to capture images of Marblehead two weeks ago which seems to have become the norm for late winter/early-mid spring for me. The lack of foliage around town and the lack of boats in the harbor limits the compositional possibilities. When I saw rain in the forecast for this weekend, I quickly checked a few apps including those predicting cloud cover and saw there was a pretty good chance for a solid dawn/sunrise on Saturday morning. I set my alarm for 5am and was out the door shortly thereafter. As I drove to Crocker Park, I [...]

Red Sky in Morning

I had last gone out to capture images of Marblehead two weeks ago which seems to have become the norm for late winter/early-mid spring for me. The lack of foliage around town and the lack of boats in the harbor limits the compositional possibilities.   When I saw rain in the forecast for this weekend, I quickly recalled that old sailor's adage 'red sky in morning, sailors take warning'. I proceeded to check a few apps including those predicting cloud cover and saw there was a pretty good chance for a solid dawn/sunrise on Saturday morning. I set my alarm [...]
