Good Harbor Beach At Dawn

The Dawning of A New Day

Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts, is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. With its huge expanse of lovely white sand facing the Atlantic Ocean, the beach is quite a beacon for beach lovers from sunrise to sunset. Lifeguards are on duty from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. Depending on the time of year, parking fees and certain restrictions apply.

I enjoy Good Harbor Beach for reasons other than traditional summer fun. As a photographer, I particularly love to capture the diverse views the beach has to offer. Sunrise and the Thacher Island Twin Lighthouses are two favorites, but another is this iconic private home perched on a rocky ledge overlooking the ocean with a view I can only imagine.

On this September morning, the sky and sand each displayed an interesting color palette and pattern. As the sun struggled to break through, a lone ocean kayaker appeared on the horizon. Dwarfed by the house up on the rocks, he unwittingly became a character in my visual story.
