High Tide: 7:12pm
A small marshy beach, sand bar, boats, lots of grass.
On Friday six photographers arrived at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in Eastham for the start of a weekend workshop with Bob Bergeron and Ronald Wilson.
The forecast for Saturday called for periods of rain with overcast skies. Not conducive to the workshop experience. The presentation could wait and we decided to take advantage of the bright sky and head to Boat Meadow landing in Eastham for "the golden hour" - the last hour of daylight when the landscape is enhanced by the warm yellow/orange light and the lengthening shadows created by the low angle of the sun.
High Tide: 7:54am
Low tide: 2:08pm
High Tide: 8:08pm
One-mile loop trail, crosses open fields overlooking Nauset Marsh.
The meet time was moved from 5:30am to 6:30am, based on a weather forecast which happily turned out to be wrong. Lan, however, was up at dawn and captured this image of a spectacular sunrise from Fort Hill while the rest of us slept.
At Hemingway Landing a sunny break briefly lit up the land while the sky seemed to threaten more rain until a rainbow suddenly appeared - a good omen for the rest of the day.
Eight fresh water ponds in this 1900-acre state park with pine & oak forests that slope down the banks to crystal clear water.
In the heart of Cape Cod, set in pine and oak forests that slope down to the banks of eight crystal clear fresh water kettle ponds, is the 1,900-acre Nickerson State Park. Nowhere in sight were the salt marshes and sand dunes characteristic of the Cape Cod landscape.
Standing on the shore of Cliff Pond in the morning stillness, it would be easy to image yourself in the Berkshires. A distinct feature on the shore of Flax Pond is one large glacial erratic with smaller boulders filling the space around it. Bare foot Robbie didn't hesitate to wade in for the shot.
By 9:30 we had been in the field for several hours and in need of coffee and calories. To the Fairway Restaurant for some good home cooking.
Traverse eight different habitats representing the diversity of Cape Cod - 1200 acres of salt marsh, sandy beach, pine woodland, freshwater pond and rare heathland with 5 miles of trail.
This 1,200-acre sanctuary traverses eight different habitats on five miles of trails that take you through a rare heathland, oak and hickory woodland, and a fresh water pond.
The Boardwalk Trail crosses a salt marsh to a beach. Hatches Creek weaves through the marsh and the view of Cape Cod Bay from the tidal flat is panoramic. The movement of the clouds along the horizon created an interplay between light and shadow as the sun played hide and seek.
The bay beach was the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and Pilgrims.
With 40 minutes until sunset we quickly climbed over a dune to the beach. Ahead of us were two mounds of marsh grass separated by a shallow tidal creek. In photography framing an image always starts with the choice of a vantage point, as Ansel Adams said, "A good photograph is knowing where to stand." Before us here was a shape - the tidal creek - that moves the eye toward the horizon as the sun is about to set behind sweeping clouds.

This outer beach referred to by Thoreau as "the Great Beach," extends from here to Provincetown.
The beaches of the National Seashore are much steeper than those on the bay. On this morning waves pushed by the wind and the incoming tide were pounding the shore. After the sun had risen, the 85-foot-high dunes were soaking up all the light in contrast to the beach. Back at the parking lot is an overlook. The view from here must be one of the best on the cape for the panoramic sweep that takes in Nauset Marsh and Bay from the ocean to the shore.
A path through an oak and pine woodland leads to bike path that crosses over a creek, offering another vantage point to frame an image of Nauset Marsh.
This peninsula has more than a mile of undeveloped shoreline, bordered by Frost Fish Cove and Pleasant Bay.
We put away our camera gear and shared breakfast at the Fairway Restaurant. Conversation around the table varied from talk of French presses, gluten free baking, Cuba and photography from digital capture to image editing and printing options. Topics we would spend the afternoon discussing in the classroom.
To the classroom for viewing, editing and critiquing images. We would know enjoy the results of nearly 10 hours in the field. Much can be learned from viewing the images of the each other, particularly when those images were captured hours earlier at sites we experienced together.
Everyone has something to contribute and we learn from each other, and that goes both ways. A feeling of cooperation among participants and instructors develops in an atmosphere that values the input of each and every participant.
Very thoughtful of you to put this together. I have enjoyed seeing our photos and showing the work to my wife.
Thank you again for an outstanding workshop. I learned a lot and enjoyed every aspect of our two and a half days together.
All the best, Richard

Our fine art printing process uses pigment based inks. Pigment printing processes have been utilized since the middle of the 19th century. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing. Pigment inks excel in permanence. A dye is molecularly soluble in its vehicle, but pigment is not. Pigment particles tend to be large enough to embed into the receiving substrate making them water-resistant. The particle nature of pigment inks ensures their archival superiority. A particle of pigment is less susceptible to destructive environmental elements than a dye molecule.
