Nantucket Flowers

IMG_3476 DONE WEBWhile on Nantucket Labor Day weekend we took a quick trip out to Sconset because I really wanted a photo of the iconic cottages (which I did get) but I was really surprised with all of the amazing flowers. Later in the day we stopped by Bartlett Farm which is where the sunflower and field of flowers photos were taken. I packed lite for the trip bringing only my 17-40 and 70-200 for lenses which made me look at the flowers much differently than I would of had I had my macro lens. Below are my top picks from the trip.

Nantucket Sunrise

Well those of you who know me know that sunrise is something I very rarely see. Last weekend while visiting a friend on Nantucket was one of these rare occurrences. She was going to be up anyway due to work so we had her wake us up just before sunrise so we could all go check it out and I could get some photos. Above is what I ended up with.

We probably should have thought a bit more about our plan of attack the night before instead of just winging it first thing in the morning but after driving around for a bit we stumbled on this spot which was perfect. I wrapped my new Gobi Gorilla Pod around a fence post and shot away.
