Continuing in the series of images captured on Sunday, November 6th while out to shoot the moonrise, here is a wider shot than yesterday's. The clouds had shifted and darkened So I moved closer to Grace Oliver Beach from my earlier spot up Crowninshield Road and zoomed out for this wider view that encompassed the beach, Peach's Point and Brown's Island. That sunset over the gap of water was the clincher though...
Overnight, a strong storm swept through Marblehead bringing rain and very high winds. The rain passed just as a high tide approached at 11am which, combined with the full moon, made for some potential flooding around town. It was actually the Code Red call warning the causeway would be closing that prompted me to get out the door and explore town.

Meanwhile, the surrounding homes in this area of Marblehead are truly magnificent in stature and architecture thus serving to exaggerate further the oddity of this simple crooked tree. This image is another from the series captured last Wednesday and was taken only 15 minutes after yesterday's shot of the boat ramp. The sun had [...]
