The Morning After

Well, the midterm elections are over. It’s peculiar but I feel neither sadness or elation. The only thing I feel for sure is that the national rancor is more than likely to get worse.

But for now, the weather is lovely , the sun is bright, the weather soft and that’s a blessing.

April Fools Day In Boston

Yes it’s now April and yes that’s a lot of slushy wet snow coming down. I thought I was going to go for a walk and take a bunch photographs of miserable people trying to stay dry and not fall down, but the truth is I only managed to stay out for less than 15 minutes. Why? Look at this picture. It’s of an almost deserted Beacon Street with one, no doubt, soaked pedestrian crossing it. That shot, in a nutshell, sums up today.

Golden Water Morning

P1080121-Editsmall It’s been lousy weather around here lately. Fog and light drizzle ruled our days. However, yesterday things changed and the low front that has dominated our coastline moved out to sea as cooler/dryer, crystal clear weather moved in.

 That morning as the sun peeked over the pines on the easterly shore of Rockport Harbor the water below our condo turned a brilliant gold, welcoming a drop dead beautiful day.

Storm Clouds at Sunset

There was a severe thunderstorm warning posted yesterday until ten o’clock last night but nothing really came of it. From time to time the sky would darken but as soon as they came, the clouds would disappear again and all in all the evening was quite lovely. This threatening sky was over Rockport Harbor around sunset and stayed only long enough to add drama to a photograph.
