These scenes were shot in Fiddler’s Cove, North Falmouth last June. I was doing a shoot from the water to highlight the area around a beautiful home for sale. Fortunately the day was a calm one and we spent most of the time in the cove before heading out to Cleveland Ledge Light (previous post).
Shooting specific things on the water, such as a house, requires quick thinking as you can’t just move a slight bit to remove a tree from view or get out of the boat to get a good shot. On this day, I was using both still and video cameras, double duty.
Lucky shots do happen such as this one with the engines lined up at just the right angle, the reflections, and the still water of the cove. I was leaning out of the boat to get this one as we turned.
Fiddlers Cove Marina has boats of all sizes and styles; small, medium, large, and extra large. It is a beautiful spot, a perfect location for a marina.
This attractive sight greets all who enter. Here you could summon a fuel dock assistant.
Beyond the entrance is Megansett Harbor, leading to Buzzards Bay. A few sailboards went by as we moved along, too far away to capture. The clouds give the sky a dramatic feel, as if some change is on the way.
The dunes were lined with beach roses beginning to bloom.
Notice how perfectly lined up and “smooth” looking this sea wall is. Just imagine working in the water to achieve this result.
Yesterday’s post about nautical term brought forth some humorous postings. I’ll try to move them over to my BytheSeaPhotos Facebook page, and invite all to add to the fun.
