I went to check out the sunset at Halibut Point State Park this past Monday, found it socked in with fog. I have to say, I was quite happy with the change of weather.
Normally, I head over to Marblehead Light to capture the Super Moon events. But today, I was interested in heading up to Halibut Point State Park in Rockport, MA. I’m so glad I did. Not only was it a beautiful moonrise, the sunset was a stunner as well. But the best part of the visit? The group of people I met who came out to see the moon rise as well. Super, super nice folks. This always makes any photo trip all the more worthwhile.
Sometimes, you just feel the need to go back into your photo archives and edit some previously untouched pics. Such was the case tonight. It was far too cold outside to go take some new pics -we’re also supposed to be getting some snow overnight as well-, so I thought I would go and see what I could play around with. I found the following pics I took back in May 2016 during my trip up to Bar Harbor.
I also found a pair of pics from my visit up to Halibut Point State Park at the beginning of the month to edit. The final shot was one I took a look at and decided not to do too much revising to (only a few instances of dust on the sensor were removed). I loved the fading sunset far off in the distance that still managed to highlight a little bit of the frozen water -despite still being in the mid 50s at the time I took the photo- and the darkness that had blanketed the area. Looking at the picture, you can almost sense the silence that encompassed the park.
I am happy to announce that my fourth book of photography, Here, There and Elsewhere, is now available for purchase on Blurb.com! A collection of photos taken over the past few years, Here, There and Elsewhere is my most ambitious book to date, one I hope you will enjoy. To order the book, or simply check out a preview of it, click here.
An eBook edition of Here, There and Elsewhere is currently in production and should be available by the end of November.
Labor Day weekend is the unofficial conclusion to the summer season. Of course, when the five-day forecast promises yet another heat wave with temps near 100 on at least one of those days, it’s hard to get excited just yet about leaves changing color, NFL football starting or the infiltration of pumpkin…everything. Still, I will use the holiday weekend as a chance to share some of the pics I have taken during the sweltering month of August. I hope you enjoy them and do so in some sort of air-conditioned comfort. Well, unless you’re looking at them in the wintertime. Then I hope they warm you up a bit.
