Essex MA at Dawn 4:39AM 5/30/12 Essex Salt Marsh and The Burnham House

I have never ever in my life been more ferociously attacked and eaten alive by mosquitoes as I did this morning capturing this shot.  I drove past it at first but had to loop back.  The water was so still, the tide was just right, the light just beginning to peek through.

The mosquitoes were insane I tell you.  I’m still itching. Hit this one up larger.  I love the reflection of the house and the clouds in the sky reflecting in the water.  No brainer, had to get out of the truck and set up the shot, right?
