Tobin's photographs from Cape Cod and Nantucket

One of the best places on earth, I love to listen to the surf on Cape Cod, fill my mind with its images, and eat outdoors.

Cape Cod & Nantucket...
Sun Through Bay Wave

I love how the sun illuminates the droplets shattering off the waves. Provincetown is in the background.
Magnolia Dance Sunset Through Grass

From a North Truro beach, sunset through grass, clouds on the water.
Distant Silhouette

The Schooner Lady II creates a distant silhouette under dramatic sunset clouds.
Safron fairies Lone Boat

Sailboat & Gull

The molten water and washed do not notice the small sailboat and separate gulls as they pass.
Grape Hyacinth End of the World

Zoom on distant lighthouse, at the end of Cape Cod, just as sun fall beneath the clouds.
Tiger Lily
Gulls Over Undertow

Into The Fog

When the sun cannot be seen.
Driftwood 1

We have several colors of Azaleas. This year, the red ones put on a great show.
Driftwood 2

Interesting colors in the bleeched roots.

Dozens of butterflies sourrounded a handful of bushes. I capture one with 2 in the background.

At the Cape's end, just outside Provincetown, you can walk along this breakwater all the way to the furtherest lighthouse.
Sunset on Wet Sand

This may be the best sunset I've photographed. I think it was the reflective wet sand that I loved so much.
Storm Coming

Storm coming off the Bay at Pilgrim Beach Village.
Moss Roses
Sun Dog and Pole

Something magically lonely about sundogs, accentuated by the 18" pole stuck into the sand.
Diamonds on the Lens

Effects on the lens as sun comes over hill in early morning. I took this while on a bike ride, ocen side.
Tiger Lilies
Three Beach Homes

Flower boxes and a white picket fence mark this cozy grouping of beach houses in Provincetown.
Ghost Ship

I took a photo of the Schooner Lady II on a sunset cruise and the lighting made it look like a ghost ship from a dream.
Safron Sun
Maze on the Beach

This maze of seaweed seems hauntingly more meaningful due to the distant lighthouse beckoning.
Magnolias Starburst Hydrangeas

Two different flowers cluster on the blossoms of this unique hydrangea aside our house.
Cape Cod Morning
Beach Homes

Provincetown beach homes with Pilgrim Monument in background, under a classic Cape Cod sky.

Moon over Sunset Sand

On beach of an inland lake on Nantucket, a full moon rises as the sun sets.
Island Sunset

Sun sets over the Atlantic and Nantucket's sandy beach.

I took dozens of windsurfing photos. This ended up my favorite, even though the ones of them jumping wildly into the air are better memories.
Sunset Beach Grass

The sun sets over the inland lake on Nantucket. Beach grass catches the motion of the wind.
Gull & Feet

There was something adoringly whimsical about this friendly gull so transfixed with Suzanne's feet.

My footprint on Pilgrim Beach, Cape Cod Bay.

Six Views of a Breezeway

Several times a day while staying at Pilgrim Beach Village (North Truro MA) we pass through this breezeway on the way to the beach and our Adirondeck chairs.

I took dozens of photos through the breezeway at various times of day. I also had the good fortune of having a full moon and the planet Venus passing through.

Photos were taken over a 5 day period, October 2005.
