I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had only learned about Wyman Cove recently and had decided to make my way there on Tuesday, June 17 at sunset to see what compositions might result. As I reached the end of the path leading to Wyman Cove, I stood and took in this scene before me. The grass formed a great frame for the scene with private piers poking out to the right. A wooded section of Salem can be seen beyond the water and the light was reflecting beautifully off the still waters in Salem harbor. I had to wait [...]
Continuing with this week's theme of images captured on the morning of Thursday, February 6 after 10-12 inches of snow fell on Marblehead, we come to this impossibly beautiful scene.

I arrived at Bass Rock Lane to find much of the lane that extends to the Atlantic ocean beyond covered with unmarked snow. I hated to disturb the snow and so I set up a vertical shot [...]

As we neared The Landing under the incredibly dramatic sky, I noted this view with Abbot Hall's tower jutting up behind the homes lining the harbor.

It's no wonder that this is such a sailing town when you can experience such views when you return to harbor (let alone all that you see when you leave our protected waters).
