Lighthouse Beach Tidal Pool
Chatham in March "Shortly after a powerful storm that filled the tidal pool in the foreground, I photographed the wind strafed beach across from Chatham Light. I have never seen the pool filled as high as it was on that day. The bright morning sun light reflected off its surface and the caps of the incoming waves. The angle of the sun was so low that it reflected off my lens with the shade at full length. In order to take the picture without sun flare I had to hold a gray card board over the lens to block the sun without it intruding into the picture. I feel this iconic image portrays the intensity of light, wind and water one experiences on the shores of Cape Cod." -Jon Vaughan, Photographer Fine Art 11” x 14” Photograph by Jon Vaughan, dry mounted on acid-free foam board, custom cut and hinged on an acid-free matte.
