We all get overwhelmed sometimes by the great “postcard views” or focus only on the iconic elements a particular shooting location has to offer.

The detail shots I show you today are from different locations and different times of the day. There are some early morning and late evening shots and a couple were made completely in the shade. But they all got some quality light that brings the colors to life or pronounces the shape and suddenly a rough working place like a lobster wharf reveals a lot of beauty…
