Hazy Day at Independence Park
Originally uploaded by randubnick
Here north of Boston, we have been having crazy weather, wild swings from cool and rainy to suddenly warm and sunny, sometimes in the same day! This makes for mist, fog, and haze. Yesterday there was a break from the rain in the afternoon, so we took the dog for a walk at Independence Park here in Beverly, MA. This is a great little park on the ocean with a view all the way to Salem Willows Park (in the distance). Last year we came here to watch fireworks (set off a Salem Willows and Marblehead and Lynch Park). But even on an ordinary afternoon, the view is spectacular. Yesterday we couldn't go down to the beach because of the dog, but even from the sidewalk, the view of the ocean was great. The hazy weather made for interesting light, so I took a few pictures. Tonight I cropped this one to get this composition.
