One of my favorite, and also nearest places to photograph is Paine’s Creek here in Brewster. I usually drive to the beach parking area, and work on the east side of the creek. Last night I chose a different approach. I went to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, about 1/2 mile away, then hiked out on Wing’s Island to photograph on the west side. The sunset itself was very soft, with little color due to clouds, but there was an open strip of sky to the north, angling toward the southwest. Experience has taught me that sometimes, after the sun has gone below the horizon, its light will get under the back edge of the clouds, and color will explode across the sky. I waited, and it happened!

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work View more posts
