Snow Blossoms

After capturing the sunrise at Grace Oliver beach on April 1st, I made my way to the Harris Street Cemetery where I had been capturing the cherry blossoms each year since 2010. For the first time ever, and quite fittingly for the first day in April, snow fell as I wandered the small cemetery looking for new angles and compositions. The snowfall was quick and so I had to make some fast adjustments to try to capture the rapidly falling flakes. This was my favorite capture of the 'snow blossoms'. You can make out the bright patch of grass which [...]

Morning Swim at Grace Oliver Beach

I thought I would continue with last week's snow theme for today's image from Grace Oliver Beach. This shot was captured on December 10, 2017. I had shared a few images of this great morning sky over Brown's Island but never this shot that included the freshly fallen snow on the outflow pipe. As a bonus, I managed to find a flock of seagulls appearing to ready themselves for a morning swim in the frigid waters.

Evening Glow on Abbot Hall’s weathervane

I was surprised to find that today's image as well as the one shared on Wednesday were both captured in the month of March - this one was taken almost exactly one year ago on March 4, 2019.  I hope I'm not jinxing us and this very mild winter by sharing images of snow from past years. I lucked out with nice light for this shot but my favorite aspect of it is the glow on Abbot Hall's weathervane reflecting the last rays of sunlight on this early March evening. If you would like to see these images without realizing [...]

Dusting of Snow on Downtown Marblehead

Today's image comes from my 'to be posted' archive and continues the theme of images of snow in Marblehead from past winters. This aerial shot was captured on the morning of March 14, 2018 after a dusting of snow fell and I was able to capture historic downtown Marblehead with its familiar landmarks blanketed in white. If you would like to see these images without realizing on FB/IG, I added an easy sign up for my daily and/or weekly email digests that include all images posted to Wednesdays in Marblehead. You can sign up below any of my current/prior posts. [...]

Pond View at Sunset

It's been a while since I posted any images of Marblehead. This was partly meant as a break to allow me to recharge and ended up being great timing as our winter without snow did not offer many opportunities for photography over the past few months. With the lack of snow this season, I went through my archive looking for images of Marblehead in the snow and found five to share this week and next. I don't plan on jumping back to the daily posts just yet though which means the Facebook and Instagram algorithms may not show these posts [...]

A Fresh Start – Cancelling Kickstarter and Refocusing on Photography

Crocker Park at dawn turns out to be a great time to think and ponder a fresh start to this Wednesdays in Marblehead project... When I first started exploring my new home town through landscape photography, I did it for myself. It was a way to exercise the creative part of my brain and challenge myself to capture the beauty I found in the more scenic locations around town as well as the hidden ones. Along the way, I found great joy when my images resonated with others. That joy grew when I was able to put together a book [...]

Snowy Sunset

With a surprise March storm dropping seven inches of snow on Marblehead on Sunday night, I held out hope for photographing the town blanketed in white after finishing up work on Monday. I spent Monday in the clinic while my kids enjoyed the first snow day of the season (enjoyed might be a stretch as the boy was in charge of clearing the heavy snow from our driveway). As soon as the last patient left, I got in my car to head home and grabbed my camera bag on the way to Foster Street. With sunset now happening at 5:30pm, [...]

Snow Day at Fort Sewall

Shortly after moving to Marblehead, I captured my favorite image of Fort Sewall with I found the red arches and this tree perfectly coated in fresh snow. I entered that image in the Marblehead Festival of Arts in 2008 and realized too late I had misspelled the title as Fort Sewell. Too late to change it, the photo was rejected - it still hangs over my desk at home. I returned to Fort Sewall during each snow storm to try to recapture that scene with a better camera and without the snowbank that always bugged me but never found the [...]

Top 10 of 2018 – #1 Abbot Hall Caked in Snow

This is my favorite image captured in 2018. On March 14th, I had gone out with my Phantom 4 Pro drone to shoot the streets of downtown Marblehead with a fresh coat of snow. I launched the drone shortly before 7am and quickly found that the morning sun was shining on Abbot Hall and illuminating its face now caked in snow.  I adjusted the height of the drone to get this centered view and then saw the flash of light in the distance created by the sun reflecting off the buildings in Boston. I've since printed this image a few [...]

Sunrise on Frozen Pond

This will be the last new image I share in 2018 (I think) as I plan to start my Top 10 of 2018 countdown on Monday.  That will lead up to the annual New Years Day slideshow looking back at all of the images shared on Wednesdays in Marblehead in the past year. Today's image comes from the morning after yesterday's first snow of the season. We ended up getting quite a bit of snow that day and I was surprised to find Redd's Pond to have nearly frozen when I arrived to shoot the sunrise the next morning.  As [...]
