We hit 68.5 degrees yesterday, November 9th, and that made me think of the beach and some of those fall/winter visits I have made to capture Devereux in the past. This shot is not from then but a mid-July evening (7:40pm) and perfect skies causing the ocean water to turn that awesome shade of green-blue. You can just make out the very faint rainbow I had chased that night but had to 'settle' for this view of the ocean instead. For anyone who has not bought a Wednesdays in Marblehead book or calendar yet or has wanted to see what [...]
I learned in a post from this same outing back in late July that the proper term for the sea foam that forms at the leading edge of a wave is spume. And yet, I couldn't quite bring myself to call this 'Spume on a Summer Eve'... Enjoy this view of white foam coming ashore on a very calm July evening at Devereux Beach. The sky went through a gamut of colors before finishing off with this purple hue.
This is a more recent image captured from an outing on July 21 when I had gone out hoping to capture lighting or rainbows from a storm passing to the south but came away with a picturesque view of Devereux Beach with clouds and surf accentuating the fading light of the sun.
I had been watching the sky last night at around 7pm and couldn't decide if we might have a nice sunset and ended up opting to stay in. But then I heard a clap of thunder and checked the radar to find a bright red spot passing just south of Marblehead and jumped in the car. I drove to Devereux Beach and arrived to find the last light of a rainbow fading. Unfortunately, no lightning appeared as I had hoped. Instead, I stayed until sunset and shot along the beach. I worked on three images when I returned home and [...]
This was taken on May 1st - the same night I captured the pink and blue light over Marblehead Neck. Once that show was over, I turned towards Devereux Beach and found the calm ocean was reflecting the warm colors of sunset. I timed this shot to include the small amount of white at the edge of a wave coming to shore.
This was my favorite outing of the 2020. On June 24th, I headed to Devereux Beach and the causeway chasing the tail end of a rainstorm at sunset to find an incredibly vibrant rainbow and then a sunset that exploded in light and color lasting almost 30 minutes before it was done. I have many favorite images from this evening but I kept going back to this one of peak color in the sky creating a gold coast from the sands of Devereux. For the perfect color in the clouds, the reflections in the sand, that small wave coming to [...]
Last night I decided to look through all images captured in November that were stuck in my 'to be posted' folder and rediscovered this shot captured on November 18, 2012. I had come away with a couple of keepers from this outing to Devereux Beach on a warm November evening but decided to go with another image over this long exposure shot at the time. I decided to reset and start over in processing this shot captured over 1/4 of a second with a small aperture to capture the movement of the November surf pulling back from shore into the [...]
Hurricane Teddy will miss the Eastern coast of the United States but is forecast to bring us high seas and strong winds that should create amazing surfing conditions today. According to surf-forecast.com, Devereux Beach is supposed to hit a perfect 10 rating tonight with 15 foot wave heights and low tide conditions. I will definitely be heading to the beach with my longest lens hoping to capture a few surfers taking advantage of the conditions... Surfs Up 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 [...]
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.
