Village Street

Life on the West Shore

For the first few years, my family lived in a rental on Willow Road mere steps from the Village street launch (otherwise known as Rockett Landing).  After moving to the Clifton Area, I've returned to this area less often than I would have thought given its beautiful scenery. In early August, the sky filled with a picture perfect mix of white clouds and dark blue skies.  I stopped at a number of locations on this day to capture scenes of Marblehead on a Summer day and couldn't resist walking the length of the float at the end of Village Street [...]

Seat for Sunset at Rockett Landing

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had gone out on Monday night as elements in the sky lined up nicely and seemed ready to add up to a solid sunset.  Having lived off Village Street for our first few years in Marblehead, I knew the Rockett Landing (or Village Street Landing) well and had spent many sunsets capturing the light reflecting off the waters of Salem Harbor.  It had been at least a year since I had returned to this spot and so I decided to drive here on this particular evening. I reached Rockett Landing just as the [...]

30 Minute Tie Up at Rockett Landing

Back to the archive for this image taken in April 2011.  At the time, we were renting an apartment off Village Street so this spot had become a favorite from which to shoot the sunset.  I could look out our window to check conditions and then make a mad dash down the hill to try to capture some of the beautiful sunsets that would take shape over the waters of Salem harbor from this spot at Rockett Landing. This particular image sat in the queue but never seemed to be good enough to warrant a share.  I spent about an [...]

Sunset from the Village Street Pier

Wednesdays in Marblehead resumes after the brief hiatus to shoot foliage in Vermont (if you missed the iPhone sneak peak, click HERE for the final shot - it's the first on the page).  I have been meaning to post this image for a while now but other shots kept cutting ahead of it.  This was taken at the end of August and I still remember how warm and humid it was on this night and how many mosquitoes kept buzzing around me as I shot this. I had noted the colors developing as the sun set and decided to drive [...]

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 [...]
