Cranberry Harvest Photos: Jenkins Bog Harwich

A great experience to watch and photograph during October is a Cranberry Harvest. This harvest was at the Pleasant Lake Bog/Jenkins Bog off Rte.124 in Harwich. Cranberries have pockets of air inside them and will float when loosened from their vine after the bog is flooded. They are then corralled with a long plastic “boom,” sucked onto a conveyor belt, rinsed, deposited into a truck  and shipped to the Ocean Spray facility in Lakeville.  The swirling colors of shades of red and some white are mesmerizing….   Enjoy!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the   Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis.  Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
