Description: “My wonderful cousin, Rebecca Cummings, and my 5-year-old son, Maverick, are enjoying the sunset at Eastern Point light in Gloucester.

“I am a self-taught photographer, actively seeking a living in my art. I have a camera everywhere that I go and take every moment as an opportunity to capture something beautiful.”

Camera info: D90, 105 mm.


The photographer captured the expansive open space in this landscape. The vastness of the sky is emphasized by having the two small figures in the photo. Although the figures are tiny, they are still important to the structure of the composition. The tranquil sky works with well with the mood of the photo.
