Frozen Marblehead Harbor at Sunrise

Today is my 40th birthday.  In the past, I have made it a point to capture the sunrise on my birthday each year and I have ended up with some favorite images to start each new year of life.  This year with forecasts for cloudy skies on Wednesday morning and overcast conditions for today, I opted to shoot the sunrise a day early. I started off intending to shoot from Hammond Park but it was closed off by a literal mountain of snow.  I was able to get close to the waters edge and found an incredible scene of a [...]

Between the Docks on Marblehead Neck

On Tuesday, October 14, I had made the decision to head out for a sunset shoot and chose Marblehead Neck as my destination.  It had been a while since I had explored one of the public ways on the Neck in particular and so I drove down to Harvard Street and then down to the water's edge.  I ducked under the closes dock and set myself up between the docks on Marblehead Neck as the sun began its slow descent.

The now old (and replaced) Commercial Street dock was set at a nice diagonal and the lights on the causeway were still (mostly) lit at 6:10am when this shot was taken.  There was a subtle pink/orange glow at the horizon (almost 90 degrees from the angle of the sun rise) which helped [...]

Experimental Friday – Get Your Feet Wet

I've featured a few shots on previous Fridays and am almost ready to label this an 'experimental Friday' theme.  This is the floating dock at Crocker Park where I went with my son in the Summer for a swim test prior to sailing camp.  It was a hot day and the cool water beckoned.  I decided to focus on the ladder so that the viewer could sense that someone was just about to reach out from below and come out of the water after a refreshing dive.
