Ready to Launch

So 12 minutes after Monday's image of that golden sunset light, the sky had transformed into a pastel pink hue that was strongest in the opposite direction. I was standing on the float at the end of the Pleon Yacht Club from where I had a perfect angle on these two launch boats belonging to the Eastern. The boats were awaiting some members who were just out of the frame at this point and seemingly headed out to their boat to enjoy the light and warm temperatures on this summer evening.

Ready to Launch

It's amazing how many compositions can be captured from the end of the pier at the Pleon Yacht Club. I shared one looking across the harbor towards Abbot Hall and the BYC last week. As I turned, I spotted this view of the launch for Eastern Yacht Club. As the wind picked up, the flags flew and picked up the light of the sun breaking through the clouds. In the distance you can see Marblehead Light peeking out from behind the Corinthian. I'm sure the harbor will be seeing lots of boats entering in the next few weeks and these [...]

Taking the Launch from the Eastern Yacht Club

On June 30th, I had gone out to shoot both the sunrise and sunset. For the latter, I had decided on the pier at the Pleon Yacht Club and kept looking in front of me (towards Abbot Hall) and behind me (at the Eastern Yacht Club) as the sun dipped lower in the sky. At this point, the sun was casting a perfect golden glow over the EYC and I captured this frame just as a small group was taking the launch out to their boat moored in the harbor.

Riding the Launch at Sunset in Marblehead Harbor

After photographing the cannon firing at sunset from the Corinthian Yacht Club, I headed back to where I had parked on Corinthian Lane and marveled at the remaining colors of sunset as they slowly faded over Marblehead harbor.  I setup the camera to capture this scene and the great solitary cloud formation at the edge of the frame when I noted the launch setting out from the Corinthian Yacht Club.  I quickly adjusted my settings and captured the added element of people in this landscape scene which ended up being my favorite capture of the set.  Hope you agree.

First Sunset in Marblehead

This will serve a bit as a 'where I started' post.  As many of you know, we moved to Marblehead in May 2008 so that I could start work as an Allergist at the Asthma and Allergy Affiliates in Salem and Danvers.  We had just gotten here from Washington, DC where I had been working and moved to a rental house off Village street.  My wife had found the house and I had only seen it once.  On this night, one of the very first spent here, I witnessed the first of many beautiful sunsets. As it began to take [...]
