Published for a 3rd time in Cape Cod Life as part of the 2017 Annual Guide

After having 4 photos published in the 2014 and 2015 Best of Cape Cod issues of Cape Cod Life, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that one of my previously submitted photos from Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket was selected as the feature image for Nantucket in the magazine’s 2017 Annual Guide. You can get the issue now on newsstands or via the company’s website or iPad app. Enjoy.Brant Point Light (Cape Cod Life)

Prints now available from Cape Cod Life

Following up on my previous post about a couple of photos being published in Cape Cod Life magazine for the second year in a row, the magazine has announced an online gallery where (to quote Cape Cod Life) “the beautiful photography you love seeing in every issue of Cape Cod LIFE can NOW be purchased as museum-quality prints for you to enjoy in your home or office. Photos can also be purchased in a variety of sizes, either as standalone prints, or matted and framed in your choice of wood or metal.”

I have four photos available for purchase (disclosure: I receive a percentage of sales) but would also recommend checking out the other photos as well.  As for me, below are links to each of the pictures:

Fort Hill, Three Sisters Lighthouses, and Nauset Beach

All done with the New York posts but still have a couple of posts from Cape Cod from the summer.  Returning to our week on the Cape with friends, here are a couple of photos taken on our last full day with stops at Fort Hill, the Three Sister Lighthouse, and Nauset Beach.  Fort Hill is a mix of old farmland and marshes with landscape and views that can make for a great hike but are also a breeding ground for bugs as we discovered.  Our hike ended up being more of a disorganized jog along the paths but I still managed to sneak in a couple of quick photos while there.  Later that day before heading out for one last dinner (and a trip to First Encounter for a beautiful sunrise, which is next time’s post) we also quickly stopped at Nauset Beach and the nearby Three Sisters Lighthouses.  The Three Sisters are old lighthouses that used to sit along the ocean’s edge (1 in Truro and 2 in Chatham) but have been moved inland to preserve them from erosion.  Once again weren’t there long but just long enough for a couple of pictures with the group.  Enjoy.

Nauset Light

Jumping back to pictures from the Cape – one morning during the week I woke up before sunrise so that I could enjoy some of the soft morning light illuminating Nauset Light along the Cape Cod National Seashore. For non-locals, Nauset Light is a 135+ year old lighthouse in Eastham, MA that faces out to the Atlantic Ocean and overlooks Nauset Beach. One of the more interesting bits of history of the lighthouse is that it that has been moved several times (originally it was located in Chatham), most recently being pulled back 300 feet due to erosion of nearby beach cliffs. I didn’t stick around too long at the lighthouse because I wanted to head over to Fleming’s Donut Shack and try one of their famous apple fritters before the crowds moved in (even arriving before 7am I still ended up waiting in line for 20+ minutes), but thanks to great light I didn’t need more than a couple of minutes to get a couple of good ones. Enjoy.

After our stop in Truro for the vineyard tour and tasting, we continued on Route 6 and headed up to Provincetown for a sunset harbor cruise on the Viking Princess.  Prior to the cruise we stopped for a quick dinner at El Mundo, which was surprisingly much better (actually it was fantastic) Mexican than you’d typically expect on the Cape (another fun fact about El Mundo is there is a second location – in Kentucky).  After a picturesque warm sunset, the gang (i.e., Tannin, Sarah, Anokhi, Ben, and Andrea) and I walked along Commercial Street taking in the eclectic sites and sounds before calling it a night and heading back down to Eastham.  Enjoy the first of two posts from P-town.

Point Loma, San Diego

Finally we’ve come to an end with the pictures from our trip over New Year’s to San Diego. On our last day there, Andrea and I spent the morning walking along the scenic Point Loma coastline, starting from the ocean’s edge and working our our way up the hill (“loma” is Spanish for “hill”) to finish off at the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. Enjoy the ocean views.
