Over the past couple of years I’ve learned to appreciate the great outdoor spots within 30 minutes of my home. The other night I returned to the Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary on the edge of the ~20,000 acre Great Marsh. Right on queue it seemed, the long rays of the fading sun turned to gold. The folks who have homes on the distant shore in Newbury get to see this every night (along with the mosquitoes). If you love this shot it is available as a print or a licensed image for commercial use.
Along with swimming in a clear New England pond or the chilly Atlantic the other great joy of summer is fresh veggies. I never miss the summer harvest at Verrill Farm in Concord, MA where my favorite crops include the sweetest corn, most buttery potatoes, and most colorful and diverse tomatoes to be found in the Boston area.
