Christmas on Cape Cod

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.

It’s almost like Florida, isn’t it?  Merry Christmas!

    We just came back from Christmas on Pender Island which sported a storm yesterday with 100 Km winds. The waves were spectacular – will send some pictures sometime. Fortunately we went over early and missed the wild boat ride and came home today when all was calm and the sun was shining. Merry Christmas! MA

    Outstanding photos! Aside from the people all bundled up – you could fool yourself with the temperatures!

    Merry Christmas!!!
