Christmas on Cape Cod 2014

I'm a little behind the 8-ball on this one, but I wanted to share my photos from my Christmas on Cape Cod.  Since most of them aren't Christmas-themed, you won't feel too out of season.

You gotta love the present chocolates my aunt put in our wine glasses!

Stars Over Fort Hill

The night after Christmas brought me out and about in Eastham for some night photography.  The above and below photos were taken at Fort Hill.

Stars Over the Penniman House

The historic Penman House looks so cool under the stars.

The Eastham Fire Station had a truck all decorated with lights.

Starry Night at First Encounter Beach

Next stop was First Encounter Beach.  You can see the Milky Way in these photos.  The above and below photos were both shot with a fisheye lens, but the bottom one I defeated.

Eastham Windmill Decked Out in Holiday Lights

I couldn't resist photographing the Eastham Windmill and Town Hall.

My Dad's Model Magic Snowman

Later that night my dad made this adorable Crayola Model Magic snowman.  The ambient light in the room backlit it so nicely so I didn't have to use a flash.

I took this photo of my parents at Indian Neck Beach in Wellfleet.

Phil Taking a Photo

I grabbed this shot of my cousin composing a shot on his iPhone.

A Fishy Sunset at Indian Neck Beach

The sunset was gorgeous!  Most of my photos were 3 different exposures layered.  The HDR comes out really scary looking for sunsets.

The Last Rays of Sun Hit the Rocks

No tripod?  No problem.  I didn't feel like going back to the car to get my tripod, so I set my camera on the rocks.

Pink Skies at Indian Neck Beach

Post sunset, I got a shot of the pink skies.

After the Sunset at Indian Neck Beach

My aunt and cousin walking back towards the parking lot seemed the perfect shot to end this series.
