Cape Cod Salt Marsh quietude photography at Bells Neck near Harwich, MA by New England and Boston based award winning nature photographer Juergen Roth. The Herring River winds through a beautiful field of marsh grasses. Bells Neck is absolutely stunning and views are not obstructed through manmade structures. The location is easily accessible by car and off Route 28. The road turns into a dirt road and the vista in this picture is from the auto bridge. Cape Cod is a cape jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean in the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United States. Its historic, maritime character and ample beaches attract heavy tourism during the summer months. In 1914, the Cape Cod Canal was cut through the base or isthmus of the peninsula, turning nearly all of Cape Cod into what would technically be described as an island (though this term is not common in everyday speech). Cape Cod is approximately co-extensive with Barnstable County, though small portions of the towns of Bourne and Sandwich lie west of the canal. Both road bridges connecting the Cape to the mainland cross the canal: the Sagamore Bridge and the Bourne Bridge. In addition, the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge carries railway freight and limited passenger services onto the Cape. Cape territory is divided into fifteen towns with many villages; Provincetown lies at the tip of the peninsula.
