Jeff Pulver’s holiday post gave me a smile today. He and his family are at the beach in Florida. He posted some photos of palm trees on his blog and Facebook.
We’re at the beach too… in Cape Cod. The beaches are cold, but utterly deserted. Many of the buildings are boarded up as well, but the place has an undeniable charm. For a photographer, the low sun casts a warm contrasty glow over everything. Here are a few of the photos I shot today with the Nokia N95, as I had neglected to bring our Nikon SLR on the walk.
Beach at the Marconi Station.
Rescue station at Race Point. Boarded up for the season.
Buggy tracks on the beach at Race Point.
Cape code winter beach fashions.
Trying to avoid the waves.
And the beautiful Cape Cod sunset illuminating Provincetown and the Pilgrim’s monument.
It’s almost like Florida, isn’t it? Merry Christmas!
