West Island Fire Tower in the Winter
Along the eastern seaboard, Fire Towers were erected by the Army Corps of Engineers during WWII to watch for enemy fire on our ships.

This was taken while I was on a walk on the back side of West Island. I just loved how pretty it looked with the light shining through it.

A bitter cold sunrise! It was only 2 degrees and the wind was howling. My fingers were completely numb after only 10 minutes.
Beavertail State Park
So much has happened in the last 10 days that I can't even remember which beach I took this at! My third surgery, in as many months, (among other really heavy stuff) has come and gone and I am officially on the road to recovery. It's going to be a LONG summer but, it helps knowing the worst is behind me!
Sandy Neck Beach, Cape Cod
The beach in the winter usually doesn't look too different from the beach any other time of year. Not so, the day after the blizzard. Everything was covered in frozen salt water, including the sand dunes high above the water.
Sunrise at Sandwich Beach
Sunset at Gray's Beach
I came across this discarded rose while I walking through the dunes. It fits my mood today.
There's nothing like that first half hour of morning light.
This was taken at Long Beach in Plymouth. I don't know this young couple. They just caught my attention, silhouetted against the dusk sky.
The jetty just before sunset.
The back of the island at sunrise
Settling back in...Paine's Creek for a low tide sunrise.
I figured everyone had enough of my south trip. I started a gallery, My Southern Exposure, from my homepage.... http://hocusfocusd70.smugmug.com/Travel/My-Big-Southern-Adventure/21883797_NQsTsF#!i=1744926765&k=bs7zDvg ...There's about 10 in there today but, I'll surely keep adding to it as I go.

These dunes are about 75 feet high, from the beach up to the top.
Paine's Creek, Cape Cod
Winter sunset at low tide
Sesuit, Cape Cod
It was a beautiful morning for a winter walk on the beach. The walk down the beach wasn't planned but, after sunrise, the time is well spent scouting out potential locations for future shoots. This will be a great low tide sunset location. It's all in the timing.
What I like about this image is how the shadows go in one direction and the reflections in the other. I had so much fun shooting my way around this beach. No matter which way I turned, there was something I wanted to make sure I captured. I spent about a half hour shooting just this one little cove created by a rock wall. This is a 5 shot hdr. The hardest thing about shooting this little scene was keeping my shadow out of it!
Cape Cod National Seashore
I've been enjoying my 5am road trips to Cape Cod. It's the only benefit of not being able to fall back to sleep! On the road again....We'll see what surprises pop in front of my camera today.
A slushy ocean. This was the scene at Paine's Creek in Brewster yesterday. The waves were slush with big ice chunks rolling in as well. The sun peeked in and out for the morning but, mostly out. The winds whipped and it was only 15 degrees to start with. Great morning of shooting in some locations I've never shot.
There are so many great images in the Dailies today!! I love when that happens!
The very end of Plymouth Beach
Hundreds of plovers and terns doing their crazy sunset thing.
A fishing boat coming in for the night. Plymouth Monument can be seen on the hill, across the harbor.
I'm so excited this morning... It snowed last night! I'm posting this and hitting the road with my camera! Have a great day!
Hen's Cove, Pocasset Mass
Chapin's Beach....Dennis, Ma
I don't know these folks, I just liked them. Sometimes, I like to think about what older couples might be thinking about. Are they worried about their health? Are they thinking about a grandchild? Are they remembering when they were young parents and brought their children here? Do the smells bring back memories? Maybe just contemplating what's for dinner....I don't know. I just like to think about it.
