Cape Light

My friend Steve Ellis was a participant at the workshop on the Cape. Steve knows Cape Cod, he and his family have either lived or vacationed there since he was born.  He made a comment during the workshop  about  “Cape light.”  I would agree with Steve, there are a few places where there seems to be a quality to the light that is only found there.  My tour partner Dan pointed this out in Ireland with regard to Connemara light.  While at this location, we were treated to just a few minutes of “Cape Light.”  Magical!

    Very Nice composition! .more than just the light, the time of year seems to matter too. Steve may have mentioned that, but I could be mistaken

      Very true as well Pete.

    Brilliant! It may just be me, but my observation is that “Cape Light” can appear year round.

      Correct, but it will surely be influenced by the time of year.

    Light, or the lack of it, is amazing. The Cape is amazing in all it’s moods. Thank you for sharing this.
