Playing in the Grass at Goldthwait

Shortly after my stop at Gatchell Park, I drove down to Goldthwait Reservation. I had checked the tides before leaving the house and knew the area would be filled with high tide water. I figured between the high water and the clouds overhead, I might have a nice grand view of the area from the rocks above at Devereux Beach. I parked in the lot and then headed up the walkway and tried a few shots taking in the full view of Goldthwait but none of them really 'worked'.

The Marshland Sunrise

This is one of three entrances into the town of Marblehead.  I featured another in an earlier post and thought it fitting to follow up with this view.  This small bit of marsh land separates Salem from our town.  It is especially beautiful in the Summer as the grass reaches its peak and I made a note to try for a sunrise shot here.  This morning worked out well with clear sky and very calm conditions. Technical: Canon 50D and EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS.  6 bracket HDR by 1EV brackets.
