This abstract scene has been a print that I love for the past few years and for me it really summarizes the vibe and beauty of Nantucket Island. The gem of a location that rests about a marathon away from the Cape Cod mainland is all about the ocean and on this cold autumn evening the waters were churning away with a beautiful layering of pastel colors within the clouds.
It will always be one of my favorite places to work and this one will be a picture i’ll always think of when wishing I was back out on the island.
Waves have a wonderful quality about them in that they are all fleeting moments. No one is exactly the same as another, and they arrive and vanish before our eyes with a magic and resonance that is a thing of beauty.
While there is a hardly a bad spot on this earth to watch the waves, I would have to say one of my favorites is from along the sandy shores of Nantucket. This one was a cold evening on the island with storms and big surf on the way but a hint of color out there on the endless horizon as well making for a classic scene along the landscape at Miacomet.
