Happy Monday, and I hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day. We spent the day at a wonderful beach house on Plum Island that was being rented by some of my wife’s family for the week (thanks Kerry and Ben!). Late in the afternoon I spotted this boat from the deck, and managed to sneak away for a few minutes to grab some shots.
It was low tide which always provides excellent photo opportunities, and this one was no exception. Usually it’s exposed rocks or the remnants of an old pier that I’m pointing my camera at, but this time it was a boat stranded by the tide. Although it’s difficult to tell form this angle, a storm was moving in from the west when I set up, so I decided to go with some darker processing to reflect what was about to hit. And speaking of reflections, when I got this image on the computer last night I noticed that you can see the sky reflected on the side of the boat near the stern. Bonus.
P.S. I have absolutely no idea why there is a giant wooden owl hanging from that line.
