A cloudless sky paired with still waters were the perfect backdrop to this lone skiff on the Essex marsh yesterday morning.
Here’s my stuck at the bridge iphone grabs of two impressive visiting yachts from the Cayman Islands. The Volpini and The Rasa. Think they could use an extra deckhand??
The skies weren’t giving me much at sunrise this morning but I did grab this view of the mist in this meadow in Essex.
I know I’ve been slacking on GMG for a couple days, but there’s a lot of hustle and bustle around my house these days as we prepare for my daughters wedding shower this weekend… SO I will leave you with this photo of my favorite spot because this place always calms me in the midst of chaos!
Lots going on in the harbor this morning while I was stuck at the bridge before work. A cruise ship (couldn’t read the name), some beautiful sail boats, the gig rowers were out there….love the summer mornings in Glosta!
We avoided the beach traffic yesterday and hung out at Ten Pound Island and enjoyed just watching the boats go by. These ladies from Ohio visiting some friends in Ipswich had the same idea!
Husband Neil on the beach enjoying some sun!
Caught the Schooner Roseway setting sail as I was yakking around Ten Pound Island yesterday morning. I could hear the unison “heave-ho” of the group as they began to pull the sails up and within minutes she was under sail and heading out of the Harbor.
I think one of the reasons I’m always the one behind the camera is because I just hate having my picture taken but after reading this I’m going to make sure I get in front of it more often! Are you guilty too? Then check out this article!
My friend Helen drags me to the most unlikeliest places to photograph. Last night we went to the Beverly-Salem Bridge for sunset and blue hour and you would think to yourself “meh” not a great scene to shoot. BUT…it turned out to be a great place to photograph! Lots of color and clouds, the kids in boats fishing on a summer night, the train going by AND we were treated by the moon rising on the other side (and me without my big girl lens!). After all was said and done it was another relaxing night of photography, a beautiful summer night for being outside and another perfect night with my friend Helen!
As I prepare to head up to Maine this week, here’s a few shots from the little town of Port Clyde, Maine where I made a pit stop during my travels last month. Love these little harbors. The sculpture of clam diggers brings back memories of my great-grandfather Weymouth Roberts and Uncle Stan Roberts who used to clam for a living and my great grandmother who used to sit at the table and shuck clams for hours. Hope you all are finding your little escapes this summer!
Cool night out at Plum Cove watching the storm clouds roll by. Went down for sunset but it was fun watching the clouds change.
Nothing like summer nights on Cape Ann. Enjoying every one!
This is great time lapse video from Babak A. Trafeshi of our fireworks!
While we all enjoy the parade, cookouts and fireworks, let’s reflect a bit about one of the best known sentences in the English language from from the Declaration of Independence…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Be safe and enjoy!!
