Harbor Bound

Harbor Bound, Scituate, MA – Shot on a cold and windy day last fall, this photo depicts a lone fishing boat coming in from a day on the water. The channel, normally full of traffic during the summer, quiets as the boats are pulled from the water each winter season in preparation for the inevitable cold. Whats left are the fishing boats, sprinkled throughout the harbor, ready for long, cold and hopefully rewarding days on the water.

One of my favorite aspects of this photo is the intensity the sky brings. Wind itself is hard to capture in a photo — its something more easily felt than seen. Here, the clouds catch the gusts and visually create a sense of movement, perfectly capturing an essence of the day it was taken.
