Sunrise at Beach Bluff Park Marblehead

Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time. The trick is to be ready for it and this morning I was. On the way to Marblehead from Boston, I stopped at a little beach to watch the sunrise. It was overcast, so I was not expecting much, but as I stood atop the seawall, I was astounded as the sky lit up in beautiful shades of purple and magenta! It only lasted a few minutes, but was magnificent.

This small swatch of land I stopped at is Beach Bluff Park on the Marblehead – Swampscott Border. I’ve photographed here before as it is an interesting albeit small preserved area. A local group is working to preserve the land here by rebuilding the seawall that protects it. If you like the images, you might consider helping them out with a small donation.

West Falmouth Harbor Cape Cod

I just came back from cape cod having experienced one of the unique moments that I treasure. Some people call it Zen, or just relaxing, but whatever you call it, these are what I seek and they are great for taking photographs. The place I discovered, while in a tiny little kayak I borrowed is called West Falmouth Harbor. It’s a unique little cove on Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts.

As I left the town landing, I didn’t think the light would be great since there was some cloud cover moving in, but the twilight turned into a moment I won’t soon forget. Bobbing there in the bay, just past the jetty I sat taking it all in as the light dimmed and my surroundings took on the blueish hue of night. Here are a couple of images:

Welcome to my Blog

This is my first blog entry. I’m starting this blog to share the natural places I treasure. I’d also like to know what places you believe are special? Where should I go next?

I also wanted to have another place to share images and ideas that don’t make it into one of the main photo galleries.

You can also check out what I’m up to on flickr.
