Under the Boardwalk

Colorful sky over the Sandwich Boardwalk

GPS: 41.764566 -70.485545 Cape Cod has a lot of wooden boardwalks. Why? Because the area is full of marshes and a boardwalk affords scenic access to the other side. But these are not the commercialized types you would find in Atlantic City, Coney Island, or Myrtle Beach. Rather, this is the cozy variety designed for […]

Moody sunset at First Encounter Beach

GPS: 41.821938 -70.003862 First Encounter Beach is in Eastham, Massachusetts, on the boundary of Cape Cod National Seashore. It looks west onto Cape Cod Bay, making it ideal for sunset.

So far, my favorite vantage point of Boston is from Harbor Walk near the Federal Courthouse, pointing at Rowe’s Wharf on the other side of the […]

Pink Marsh

GPS: 41.818624 -69.959440 Cape Cod has many salt marshes. Centuries ago, these grasslands witnessed grazing cattle and salt production. Although the marshes have since receded, those that remain can make darn good photographic subjects. I travel to Cape Cod regularly for photography. One of the marshes I visit frequently is Nauset Marsh in Eastham, Massachusetts. […]

Glacial Remnants

GPS: 41.610332 -70.651945 Although I was raised far from the coast, ocean scenes and bodies of water are among my all-time favorite subjects to photograph. I love the unpredictable moodiness of tides and the impact of long exposures on the water surface. This image was made on Cape Cod, on a small peninsula bearing the […]
