Pier & Harbor
An historic fishing port, Provincetown is situated at the tip of Cape Cod in an area of spectacular natural beauty, surrounded by miles of dunes and beaches. Provincetown has a diverse and singular history. The Pilgrims first landed in Provincetown in 1620 and signed the Mayflower Compact, a declaration of self-determination and radical thought that characterizes the history and people of Provincetown, even today. Provincetown has been home to sailors, pirates, fisherman, painters, and authors for centuries. In the nineteenth century, Provincetown, with the largest and safest natural harbor on the New England coast, was one of the greatest and busiest seaports in the country. The rich texture of cultural and social influences has produced a sense of place that is uniquely Provincetown. For over a century, these special qualities have attracted artists, tourists, and bohemians who have then blended with the local population and produced a unique community character. Provincetown is truly like nowhere else. MacMillan Pier is a short walk to all that the Town has to offer, such as retail shops, museums, restaurants, theaters and art galleries.

Beautiful warm light, good composition. I feel such peace. I do not like the flying bird. Needlessly crept into the frame.
All the best!

Hello Tom, This appears to be a very quiet location. The reflectons are excellent to include the sea gulls. Always an perfect time of day to take this kind of picture and you have captured it very well. I really like the golden color that the sun hss provided to the buildings. Great shot. Regards, Roger

Lepo mesto i trenutak, sa pticama i lukom osvetljenom poslednjim zracima sunca na zalasku, lep fotografija.
Dobar ugao snimka sa lepim refleksima na vodi, lepe boje.

Ah! Very good idea to zoom into that golden pier and it's charming reflection! It's a so fine mesmeric sight! and it's good to have included those birds too because not only they are a nice focal point but give depth to the image. Really a magic golden moment you have captured here and you have succeeded in creating several lovely composition all equally meaningful.

This is a very attractive sunset composition with a lovely serene mood to it. The ducks are a charming addition and have the added advantage of giving the image depth. What is most appealing is the play of light along the pier and the lovely reflections in the wet sand,\.

Another fine harbor shot with a wonderful golden light on the distant pier. The fg birds animate the scene. Nice reflections & superb sharpness. Tfs!

Congratualtions for this excellent managment of light with the dored colors of the pier which arise in the harmony of colors. The water's bird, in the FG, give life nad too depht to the composition. Very nice reflections too.
Have a nice WE,

Thanks for your kind words Tom
Fortunately, avian sight is binocular so those gulls can "read the late edition" of the Cape Cod Times at low tide on beach and admire as well with the other eye those lovely reflexions of a golden pier!

this is a beautiful impression in every sense, the golden light makes it very attractive and the mood is simply wonderful. I also like the reflections. My compliments also for the interesting note!

This is a great shot taken under wonderful low angle lighting. The golden glow on the pier is great creating nice contrast with the surroundings. The birds in the foreground adds nice depth for the scene.

The golden light on the pier makes an outstanding eye-catcher!
And the gulls seem to have a ball picking food from the seabed...
A fine composition, that conveys the mood very well!

beautiful snapshot with the light of the sunset as falling on the wooden jetty to makes the scene so bright and warm.The seagulls on the foreground to feed carefree in the waters.

You and we are enjoying this series on foreshore, with the reflections in the wet sand.
This is particularly interesting with the group of seagulls in the foreground enjoying the last rays of sun and the magnificent view over the golden pier in the background. Even, the flying seagull was caught in the fire of the setting sun !
I like the continuation of the golden line, with the newly-lit lamps in the horizon.
Tfs and have a good week.
