Squam Rock

I've photographed the beach and lighthouse around Squam Rock in Gloucester many times. This location usual results in nice images as long as mother nature plays her part with a good sunset.

With minimal cloud cover in the sky I wasn't sure if a nice sunset was going shape up this evening. I took the drive to Gloucester anyway with fingers crossed. By the time I arrived the sun was glowing bright red through the hazy August evening sky. I took this image as I was walking down the hill towards the beach and lighthouse.

Squam Rock and the surrounding beach are a very beautiful area and even though I've photographed there many times before I know I'll go back and I'm sure to find something new that catches my eye next time.
