I went out to do some sunset shooting the other night, and decided to make a trip to Marblehead, MA to shoot Marblehead Light. I got there a little early and was amazed at how many people were picnicking on the lawn or just hanging out in chairs, etc. It had been a while since I’d been there, and I guess I forgot what a beautiful place this is to just hang out and enjoy the incredible views.
So to pass the time until the sun went down, and also in an effort to avoid having lighthouse images full of people, I climbed down the rocks to the side of the lighthouse to grab some long exposures of the rocks and tide pools. The late afternoon sun was still hitting the rocks, which added some really nice light to the image.
Later on I did manage to get a few lighthouse shots that I liked which I’ll post starting tomorrow. And by the way, is it just me, or does that grayish rock in the middle look a little like a deformed dolphin?
