Sunset over the Gap

Continuing in the series of images captured on Sunday, November 6th while out to shoot the moonrise, here is a wider shot than yesterday's. The clouds had shifted and darkened So I moved closer to Grace Oliver Beach from my earlier spot up Crowninshield Road and zoomed out for this wider view that encompassed the beach, Peach's Point and Brown's Island. That sunset over the gap of water was the clincher though...

Up Crowninshield Road (first of five in a series from an unexpectedly great outing – longish post)

This was such a fun and unexpected outing that I wanted to share a bit about my thoughts leading up to and during this amazing shoot - this might be a bit long... So it is Sunday, November 5th and daylight savings time has just ended leading to what always feels like the longest day of the year. I had thought about shooting the moonrise in large part because the timing of the full moon on Tuesday night, while perfect in relation to sunset, would take place at 4:35pm while I was still at work. I hate most things about [...]

Low Tide at Parker Lane

Summer may be nearing an end with school starting today but that doesn't mean that warm sunsets are done for the year... I decided to look 'forward' by checking my To Be Posted folder for images captured in September and found this one taken almost exactly one year ago on September 8, 2021. It was low tide when I stopped at the end of Parker Lane and made my way down to the 'beach' (not really a beach if it only appears at low enough tide). I took turns shooting with the sun in the frame and without and tried [...]

Crepuscular Sunset

On July 12th, I was fortunate to witness (and capture) a great sunset over Marblehead Harbor. This is the fourth image from that outing which began with golden light over the harbor and exploded into a pink-red glow. At this point, crepuscular rays formed with the sunlight pushing through clouds and being broken up into these rays of light. It was tough to decide how to frame the shot to showcase the incredible sky but not sacrifice the golden glow of Marblehead Harbor. Side Note: I started Wednesdays in Marblehead to share my images of this town. I was thrilled [...]

Inner Harbor Sunset

Back to sharing images of Marblehead after last week's talk of Kickstarter and the new 2023 Calendar. As a quick update, the Kickstarter seems to have plateaued. I think there are many reasons for that but will let the campaign run its course and see where it ends up. In FAR better news, I should get my calendar proof later today and will share it when it arrives. PreOrders are open on my website now at the price of $19.95 (scroll halfway down the homepage) and will be available directly on Facebook/Instagram when the calendars arrive but will be at [...]

Opening Act for the Fourth

On the Fourth of July, I had decided to set up along Fort Beach for the harbor illumination and fireworks show. I arrived with plenty of time to explore options along the rocks and made sure to race back up to Front Street as a subtle sunset formed between Fort Sewall and Marblehead Light.  There was just enough water to reflect the pink hues. Unfortunately, this angle highlights the missing tree lost to a storm several years ago.

Sunset Reflections at the BYC

Just imagine having to sit through dinner at the BYC with me while this sky was taking shape over Marblehead Harbor... Thankfully, our hosts have known me since the day we moved to Marblehead in May 2008 and both they and my wife gave their approval every time I looked out over the water. For this shot, I decided to move the camera just above water level to maximize the sunset reflections in the calm harbor water.

Golden Light on Boden Beach

When I headed across the causeway to the Neck on Tuesday, July 12th, I had hoped for a decent sunset and lucked out with some great light that went through a number of shades as I moved around on the Pleon Yacht Club pier. This shot was the start of that night and I decided to compose the shot wide enough to include the golden light reflecting on the waters at this private beach. I wondered about the name of it and found a reference to Boden Beach on Google Maps. Since it's a private beach, I'm guessing the one [...]

Red Sky at Night

On Tuesday, July 12th, I had made my way to Devereux Beach as sunset approached with an eye on capturing the full buck moon rising. Though not full until the following day, the timing of the moonrise was preferable on Tuesday.  However, once I reached the beach, I found the cloud cover too thick for hopes of a moonrise and quickly decided to try for a sunset instead as the clouds held some promise. I stopped at a few locations before turning down Foster Street and making my way to the Pleon pier from which I wandered a bit further [...]

Feast for the Eyes at the Neck Run Cafe

And now a visit back to that incredible sunset from June 27th. This night started with rainbows over the ocean and then I was greeted to this awesome display as I turned back to the car. I shot one image of the lifeguard chair and then moved over to compose this image of the Neck Run Cafe. My family has been known to make fun of me for some of my cheesier titles so this one is for them - 'Feast for the Eyes at the Neck Run Cafe'.
