Fog, rain, mist and cool temperatures have prevailed in eastern Massachusetts this past week. It’s a wonderful time to head out with a camera to capture the landscape in beautiful, soft light. After work one evening I found myself driving aimlessly, as I often do when I go out to shoot. Ten minutes later I arrived at the gatehouse of the Crane Estate at Castle Hill in Ipswich, Mass. insisting to the gatekeeper that emphatically yes, I do want to visit tonight and walk around in the fog and rain.
After parking my car at the bottom of the hill and putting on my rubber boots, the pouring rain stopped just long enough for me to walk for an hour and take this series of images. It was a magical evening.
