Sun Kissed Harbor

The best light for photographing sunsets is always after a heavy quick moving thunder storm this image I took last year.. image size is 9×20 I will only be printing 10 images at this size please feel free to contact me at (978) 559-1944 or email at marlexop@yahoo.com

AfterGlow

I knew once I saw weather and the quick rain storm was coming through around 5 that the sunset would be amazing.. and it sure was even more then I could have predicted. Once I saw the sky clearing up on the horizon I grabbed gear and off I went to Corliss Landing.

Good Harbor Rainbow

Sunday’s weather was all over the place rain then sun, awesome clouds and light for photography . Then as I approached the footbridge I saw a rainbow just barley forming, snapped a quick photo before it disappeared,, that’s why I always have my camera on me.

Opening Day

Here’s a shot I had been thinking of doing for opening day,, being a huge Sox fan, and baseball fan. The feeling of home opener means a lot to me brings me back to when I was a kid playing baseball in the churchyard and down the fields or hair playing catch in the backyard,I know to some they have lost the passion because of all the big contracts and how expensive it is to spend a day at the ballpark,, all I have to say to those is grab a glove and ball a couple friends and just have a pick up game, I know that feeling will comeback!!

Let’s Go Redsox

Lanescove Shack

Sunset photo from Lanescove, this was a happy accident, walking from one side of the cove to the other I saw the colors behind the shack and trees so I climbed down the rocks since the tide was low I was able to frame this shot. First time I’ve seen this angle. Hope you guys like it, thank you

Please feel free to contact me if interested in purchasing any of my photos, website is in the works. I can be reached at (978) 559-1944

Magnolia Pier

One of my most photographed subjects is the magnolia pier. Seeing it in its current state makes me sad but I know the people involved in the reconstruction will get her back to normal as soon as they can. For those that don’t know the Pier was severely damaged during the last few storms with damaging surf dismantling it making it unsafe .

Red Skies

This was taken last summer after a quick thunder storm rolled through. The intense colors that came after were breath taking the marsh at low tide created these pools that absorbed the colors, Corliss Landing, a spot that never disappoints for sunsets.

Summer Dreaming

Waking up early this morning to go catch sunrise I heard the wind and decided to not go shoot,, yes I’m a fair weather photographer, well only when it’s March and the temperatures in the teens with wind chill.. I hope you enjoy this sunset shot from Colby Farm taken last September

Beacon Sunset

Driving around the back shore in Gloucester there are so many incredible views of our gorgeous town, this scene is no different. As I approached the Beacon Marine the light was changing fast I knew there wasn’t much time so I quickly pulled over and grabbed gear and set up through the railings just in time,

Moon Lit

Sometimes things just line up for you. While watching and waiting for our Snowy Owl to take flight and hunt,, she landed on this telephone pole perfectly aligned with the moon..

Calm Before the Storm

This image was taken last Thursday before the storm came through, Long Beach did not look the same for the next few days.

Also a big thank you to Joey for making me part of the team. Hoping to share a lot more of my images with you all thank you for the support

Last Light Annisquam

4 minute exposure just after the sun had disappeared love capturing the lingering light this way as it gives the clouds the streak affect.

I also want to thank Joey for giving me this opportunity as the featured artist for the month of February. And also to all of you for the lovely comments and likes.

Tomorrow March 1st through the month i will have 6 pieces at the gallery area at Addison Gilbert Hospital here in Gloucester

And will also have 7 pieces hanging in Gallery above the Schooners Market in Essex through the month of March,,

Thank you everyone,

Steel wool

Here is the image of the steel wool spinning behind man of the wheel statue that we talked about on the podcast. Definitely need to find another location and give this a group effort., let me know if you’re interested .

In the Woods

Walking in Ravenswoods i heard sounds when I turned and this is what i saw,, probably not a good idea to walk around up there at night.

This is my version of portrait photography my niece was a good sport of going with an idea I️ had and rocked the shoot..

Screech

I also love to photograph wildlife,, i had found this screech owl about a month ago and have visited the tree a few times sense.i knew once the snow started Thursday I️ had to get a shot with the falling snow, and thankfully he was just sitting there..
