Gorgeous sunset over Gloucester Harbor and Rocky Neck, with the colors of the sky flowing from red hot reds and oranges to soothing shades of violet pinks and blues. Within moments, the sky hues changed from orange to violet.

WELCOME TO THE COTTAGE ON SMITH COVE, A FUN AND CASUALLY ELEGANT BEACH AND NAUTICALLY INSPIRED SHOP!
Stop by The Cottage on Smith Cove, you won’t be disappointed! The little gray shingled shop is overflowing with sea, sun, and sand inspired home furnishings, jewelry, and lightweight, airy pure cotton tunics, tops, and wraps. There is even a charming selection of children’s clothing. I had the pleasure to meet the very friendly and helpful Ginger Attaya and Kathy Tarpinian this afternoon, two of the seven women who own The Cottage.

Liz Fletcher – Old Frog Pond Farm & Studio Annual Sculpture Walk around the pond and through the woods
Since graduating from Mass. College of Art in 1970, Liz Fletcher has worked in clay as a sculptor, potter, and teacher. She is an exhibiting member of the NH Art Association and the League of NH Craftsmen, showing her work around New England and as far as Georgia, Texas, and the state of Washington. Living in the woods, Fletcher became concerned about human impacts on the land. After getting a Masters degree in Resource Management at Antioch New England, she assisted the Nashua River Watershed Association with open space planning, coordinating their Greenway program to protect the rivers of the region. “The wonders of the natural world inspire me, as do the absurdities of the human condition, which is often not beautiful but sometimes humorous! People often sense a narrative quality in my work — the images speak, telling stories. Life forms fascinate me. I love to shape clay into creatures and strange beings whose combinations of human, beast, and bone embody the interpenetration of the natural and human worlds, of geologic time and daily life. We’re all in it together — voyaging in this great mysterious universe.”

I have loved this past month’s atmospheric and textured, misty April weather. Do you recall an April as foggy? I don’t. Whenever out and about and a spare moment was mine, I grabbed my camera and had a go at capturing beautiful fog-shrouded Cape Ann.
Trying out the new teleconverter–note the little tiny figure fishing on the breakwater in the photo on the left, which was shot at 18mm, and then with the 400mm lens plus tele.
Same focal lengths with Ten Pound Island.
