Cape Ann Harmony - Seascape Fine Art Photography from North of Boston

Cape Ann Harmony - Seascape Fine Art Photography from North of Boston

In recent weeks I have been exploring and chasing the light on Cape Ann, located just a short drive north of Boston. Singing Beach is one of my favorite beaches in New England as it hidden by a scenic cliff.

Early morning is a great time to be at this location and make the best of a sunrise adventure. Beach crowds haven't arrived yet and the lighting is beautiful during dawn. This seascape photography image was taken only minutes before the sun peaked above the horizon. The sky was beautifully painted in orange and blue hues while the Atlantic Ocean surf gently greeted the sand.

I set up tripod and gear near the incoming ocean waters while studying any obviously patterns and getting wet feet. Once I composed a pleasing composition of the sea view I waited for the right wave to hit the beach.

Aperture was set to f/11 allowing an exposure time of 1/20 of a second at ISO100. A split ND filter balanced the light in the darker foreground against the brighter and colorful sky. During post processing I removed dust spots and other imperfections, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image of Cape Ann Harmony.

Good light and happy photo making!

My best,

Even after photographing for nearly two decades, Mother Nature still catches me by surprise. The little things that she provides near my home, at my home, or on the road still give a never ending inspiration. Just the other day, I had one of these moments when I discovered ... Learn More.

Ever wondered how ...

Kermit the Frog or any other prominent person like an athlete, celebrity, movie star, or politician must feel when their personal space is invaded by a paparazzi. This nature photograph of a frog might be a good example for an out of control paparazzi. To achieve a better and more pleasing composition of the little frog, I had to get really low, hold the camera way in front of me and slowly move in closer for a frame filling photo. Although the green frog was very ... Learn More.

Daffodil Flower Photography at Halls Pond

I always love when I find a floral photography object that I can beautifully isolate against an attractive background. My last picture of this kind I found on my last visit to the local Wildlife Sanctuary Hall's Pond in Brookline, Massachusetts. Brookline is more famous for being part of the finishing miles of the Boston marathon, birthplace of J.F. Kennedy, 60 minutes reporter Mike Wallace or late night host Conan O'Brien and I also like living here for >>> Learn More.

Better Photo Tips

Better Photo Tips

Photo Tip #8 of 20: When in doubt, leave things out and remove them from your composition. If there is something in the picture that is irrelevant to the photography subject or that somehow does not support the cause, try eliminating it. In this tree picture from Acadia National Park I eliminated the boring overcast sky and by the select focus on some of the tree trunks and moos I was able to eliminate distracting branches and trees while producing a more intimate New England Landscape Photography composition of the scenery. >>> Find More Photo Tips
