Marblehead Sunrise Shoot

Saturday morning I awoke at 3:30am and my first thought was "What the hell am I doing up?" before I remembered that I was heading to Marblehead, MA for another photo shoot with Jeff & John. After an hour in the car I was relieved to get to Marblehead about 20 minutes before sunrise to catch some gorgeous colors over the harbor.

There were some beautiful blues and pinks both in the sky and in the water. Those colors gave way to some beautiful oranges and yellows as the sun began to make it's way over Marblehead Neck. In addition we were there at low tide, revealing to us many interesting subjects we may not have otherwise seen.

With the sun rising quickly through the sky we decided to head to the nearby beach which lead us to a plethora of options. We each walked the same 200 meters of beach, but came away with vastly different shots. My favorite of the beach was of something I had never seen in the south, a handicapped beach access way. I loved the colors of the sign and the shallow depth of field I was able to obtain.

ISO 100, 24mm, f1.4

By 8am we were all tired and ready to head home with a hours of shooting already completed. But I wanted to take a few minutes to get a nice panorama of Marblehead Harbor from Chandler Hovey Park on Marblehead Neck.

This wasn't the first time I've shot sunrises over Marblehead and it certainly won't be the last. There is a wonderful tranquility to the area at first light, and there are plenty of gorgeous views around every corner.
