The Boathouse at Low Tide

It was a gray, drab, end-of-day, but there was still color to be found. Clouds covering the sun and sky, bathed everything in a soft, shadow-less light, with muted, subtle colors. On this evening walk by the water, I was committed to finding some subtle colors, capturing and enhancing them with a little bit of editing…

As I approached the boathouse, walking around Cove Park at low tide, I remembered a lesson learned from reading my favorite book about photographer Elliott Erwitt over and over as a teenager: shoot from a different point-of-view (paraphrased).

So I clambered down the precariously-stacked breakwater rocks onto the sand, shells, and pebbles revealed by the ebbing tide, looking for different POV’s to shoot. Down there, I could enjoy the exposed foundation of the boathouse, gaze at the algae-covered rocks usually covered by water and waves, and peer at the clammy (literally full of clams) mud of the estuary’s bottom. And of course, I could make a few subtly-colored photographs. Here are a couple more of my shots/edits from that walk by the boathouse:
