Last night I attended a photography workshop sponsored by the Mass Cultural Council. My friend Greg Lessard led the photography workshop in conjunction with John Galluzzo from the Mass Audubon. Two MA Audubon vans drove us along the 5 mile road out to the Gurnet Lighthouse in Saquish. The road (accessible only by 4 wheel drive vehicles) begins at Duxbury Beach and the land somewhere along the way becomes part of Plymouth .
Here is a view across the bay to Plymouth.
It was a very hot and hazy evening.
We were standing on top of an old army bunker as I took this shot. Notice the thin strip of land behind the lighthouse to the right. That is the road we drove out to get there. (It's the same place I photographed the Snowy Owl this past winter if you remember.)
As the sun was getting lower in the sky, I set the exposure to get a sillhouette by using the exposure compensation button and dialing in a negative exposure value. Notice the people in the top of the lighthouse in this image as well as the previous image. A man from the Lighthouse association accompanied us and he opened the lighthouse up to us. (I chose not to go up, I was already sweating thank you very much)
Here's a shot of the setting sun taken along the road back.
The sinking sun........
And the afterglow..........
It felt great to be out shooting again. This was my first photography outing in almost 2 months.
