Whew! I’ve just completed a series of scheduled appearances, from the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to the New England Aquarium, presenting the recently published Under Cape Cod Waters, and I want to thank all the venues, organizations, and bookstores that hosted me.
It’s a real pleasure to visit New England in true summer when it is hot, sunny, and green. During the midst of speaking engagements and meeting lots of wonderfully inquisitive people, I found at least a few minutes to jump into a Cape pond. It never ceases to amaze me how different the aquatic ecosystems look each time I visit. Different seasons, different weather, different times of the day–all these factors account for observable changes and what ends up being photographed. No pond, bay, marsh, or wreck is ever the same and that’s one of the points I’ve tried to express in UCCW. Though I’m soon off to California and then French Polynesia, I know I’ll soon be back exploring these wet, forgotten and overlooked bits of Cape Cod.
The images below were captured in Wellfleet just a few days ago during an breezy, overcast but bright morning before I drove from the Cape to Boston.
