Little houseboat in the great frozen salt marsh #Gloucester MA

A photo journal after the storm documenting and comparing a few iconic and sweeping Gloucester vistas on January 7, 2018, when all was white ice frozen, and again after the Great Thaw on January 13 2018.

The Little House boat in the great frozen salt marsh reminded me of a mash up of two of Virginia Lee Burton’s children’s picture books inspired by Gloucester — Little House and Katy and the Big Snow. Here’s the little floating houseboat after the thaw at low tide January 13, 2018.

Morning Reflections on Little River

I can’t tell you how many years I’ve driven by this spot early in the morning and thought how beautiful the reflections were and continued on my way.  It wasn’t until a couple years ago I actually stopped with my camera.   It doesn’t look like much from the road, but early morning about an hour after the sun rises it’s such a beautiful, peaceful view.  Of course as in any photographic location, the clouds, the tide and the position of the sun can change the scene from moment to moment but that’s what makes capturing these scenes with my camera so special to me.  Our lives are so busy these days and if there is one thing my camera has taught me it’s that moments matter….so stop and be in the moment once in a while.   (Nikon D90, F8, ISO 100, 1/10-18-200 mm Nikon lens)
