My last days on Nantucket were spent first recovering from the 14 mile shoe-swallowing sand trek to Great Point, then taking my time with just a few more shoots before the week came to a close. The last of Hurricane Maria was churning offshore, and brisk winds would be whipping across the island for the next day or so. I revisited Sankaty Lighthouse for sunset, playing with long exposures as clouds rolled across the sky. Then it was a cool and cloudy visit to the east side where I walked the dunes and beach at Quidnet for an abstract seascape steeped in rich jewel tones of royal blue and turquoise.
My last day on the island I went back to Madaket Harbor, but this time for an aerial drone session. The tide was low and about a dozen people were out clamming on a Sunday morning. I walked along the marshy tide line until I found a dry sand patch to launch from and explored the harbor by air. The marsh and reef were clearly visible through the clear shallow water, and illuminated to a vibrant green with the noontime sun overhead.
All in all it was a wonderful week to spend on Nantucket. The shoulder seasons remain a wonderful time to enjoy these solitary offshore retreats. A great thanks to the Nantucket Island School for granting my Artist Residency! I can't wait to revisit again soon :)
