Photographer's Note

View from First Encounter Beach, looking west at sunset. The horizontal strip of land across Cape Cod Bay is Great Island. This is a narrow peninsula (at points, little more than a sandspit at low tide) that dangles from Wellfleet Harbor. The beach is named for the first encounter between refugees ("Pilgrims") from England and Native Americans, in 1620. The new arrivals later went north, to what's now called Plymouth. The photo was taken shortly after a downpour. While I was taking these shots, the air was almost steamy and buzzing with mosquitoes.
