Hammond Park

Sunrise on the Summer Solstice

I'm not sure what it is about the summer solstice but, for whatever reason, I woke up at 4am - exactly as I did last year at this time (click for last year's photo).  I decided to revisit Hammond Park at dawn and got there to witness some soft pink light fading as the sun got ready to rise.  There were clouds at the horizon so I had little hope for a solid image until I saw the first signs of a red sun rising.  I composed the image and kept chasing the rising sun.  The images were fine but [...]

It’s Going to be a Good Day

After the purple dawn, a deep red sky, a rising red sun, and crossing over the lighthouse, the sun finished its ascent to start a wonderful Summer day. This the last of five posts this week documenting an incredible sunrise over Marblehead harbor.  This seemed a perfect way to lead up to my entry in the Marblehead Festival of the Arts as well as a showing of my photos at Lost + Found in Five Corners.  Lost + Found will be having a reception on Saturday, July 2nd from 6:30-9:30 - I hope to see you there and meet some of my readers in person!

Doing the Moondance

After the purple dawn, a deep red sky and a rising red sun, the sun crossed behind the lighthouse at Chandler Hovey park.  It wasn't until I arrived home that I was able to make out the name of the boat in the foreground...Moondance.  The irony of a boat named after the moon lined up with the rising sun is made more so by the shot I have of the Supermoon that almost exactly mirrors the sun position. This the fourth of five posts this week documenting an incredible sunrise over Marblehead harbor.  This seemed a perfect way to lead up to my [...]

The Sun Also Rises

Following the purple dawn and a deep red sky, the sun began its slow ascent just to the left of the lighthouse at Chandler Hovey park.  This was shot from Hammond park and the clouds were doing a great job of magnifying this already amazing scene.  I can't believe my good fortune to have those wisps of clouds line the red sun as it made its way up. This the third of five posts this week documenting an incredible sunrise over Marblehead harbor.  This seemed a perfect way to lead up to my entry in the Marblehead Festival of the Arts as [...]

Let There Be Light

Following a few minutes after yesterday's view of a purple dawn, the sky turned a deep red that was reflected by the boats in the harbor.  The clouds formed an incredible shape that looked a bit like the eye of a hurricane as they slowly drifted by.  I was fortunate that the wind was minimal as it allowed for a longer exposure that served to accentuate the saturation of the entire scene. This the second of five posts this week documenting an incredible sunrise over Marblehead harbor.  This seemed a perfect way to lead up to my entry in the [...]

Dawn of a New Day

I really wanted to shoot a sunrise but just could not fathom the 4am wakeup that would be required.  That is until I woke last Wednesday at exactly 4am without an alarm clock and figured it must be a sign.  I had plotted out the sunrise 'just in case' and realized Hammond Park would offer the best vantage point.  I set up and watched as the dawn broke spreading a purple glow over the harbor filled with boats. This will be the first of five posts this week documenting an incredible sunrise over Marblehead harbor.  This seemed a perfect way [...]
