Easter Sunset Gloucester Harbor.
Last night’s saturated sunset from East Gloucester was arresting, becoming even more so after the sun set. The colors on the water momentarily reflected the voluptuous hues of the twilight sky, when very quickly the horizon turned glowing coral-pink-peach before extinguishing itself in purple.
The violet-orange on the water’s glass-like surface in the foreground looked as though it had been applied by paint.

The sun’s light at daybreak coming up over the harbor after the snowstorm lent a golden glow to all. I find our neighborhood–the people, the architecture, the boats, the sweet little robins–to be a never ending source of inspiration. See panoramic view of Smith’s Cove sunrise, posted yesterday.
I keep trying to find different ways to show the increasing amounts of snowfall in this most historic of snowy winters and think the panoramic view lends itself well.

Just curious–in the above photo, does anyone know what that box-shaped thing is at the end of the dock, below the seagull?
Coming home from work and driving along East Main Street Monday afternoon, the east side was bright and sunny while a ghostly blanket of fog shrouded the far side of the harbor.
He said he heard it breathe when it lifted it’s back out of the water and it’s back came up about 6 or 7 times within 15 minutes or so. The skin was smooth and it was pure white, the whole animal.
What he saw was the back hump come out of the water and then the tail and the tail was split like two points. Can anyone ID what it could have been???
A beluga perhaps?
Updated, a second confirmation from Amy Beaudet:
My father-in-law also saw it yesterday by the paint factory. He said it was a beluga whale. He’ll probably give more details later.
