I Love Cape Cod! - August 2011 Sea Glass Photo Contest

~ by Kerry Starzyk - San Diego, California

I took this photo at East Falmouth, Massachusetts in Cape Cod.

This photo was taken around noon. Very sunny, 80 degrees.  Just a beautiful day on the Cape.

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?

    I was very excited about finding the small piece of blue sea glass and wanted to do something whimsical with it. I thought putting Danbo in the picture would be fun.

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?

    Olympus E 620 with 12-60mm lens

What tips or suggestions do you have for other photographers?

    Shoot what you love and that feeling will shine through.

This special photo is in the August 2011 Sea Glass Photo Contest.

More Info on Cape Cod:

Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod, berths several whale watching fleets who patrol the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. Most fleets guarantee a whale sighting (mostly humpback whale, fin whale, minke whale, sei whale, and critically endangered, the North Atlantic Right Whale), and one is the only federally certified operation qualified to rescue whales. Provincetown has also long been known as an art colony, attracting writers

and artists. The town is home to the Cape's most attended art museum, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

Cape Cod is a popular destination for beach-goers from all over. With 559.6 miles (900.6 km) of coastline, beaches, both public and private, are easily accessible. The Cape has upwards of sixty public beaches, many of which offer parking for non-residents for a daily fee (in summer). The Cape Cod National Seashore has 40 miles (64 km) of sandy beach and many walking paths.

Cape Cod is also popular for its outdoor activities like beach walking, biking, boating, fishing, go-karts, golfing, kayaking, miniature golf, and unique shopping. There are 27 public, daily-fee golf courses and 15 private courses on Cape Cod. Bed and breakfasts or vacation houses are often used for lodging.

Each summer the Naukabout Music Festival is held at the Barnstable County Fair Grounds located in East Falmouth,(typically) during the first weekend of August. This Music festival features local, regional and national talent along with food, arts and family friendly activities.
