Province Land Blues

During one of my extended sessions out at Cape Cod I visited several bone yards of ancient piers that once were part of a vibrant fishing port in Provincetown.
I wandered out to this rickety collection of poles which seemed to have been placed in a random fashion dating back to the early 19th century. It was late afternoon, I noticed the blue reflections of the sky cast on the surface of the water, and how the warm golden tones of the silty mix below the surface worked so well with the luminous blues. I knew I had to capture this before the angle of light was lost to me, and decided to use my telephoto lends to crop closely and a Singh-Ray neutral density filter to allow me to take 30 second exposures.
The crusty barnacle clad piers added a wonderful graphic balance to anchor this panoramic scene as the ethereal movement of water created such a beautiful sheen that just seemed to glow!
