Wellfleet Views: Exploring Great Island!

A first for me…biking along the outer beach of Great Island, Wellfleet…Tide was going out, sandbars of various length and shape were appearing…much of the beach is closed off during bird nesting season…part way along the coast sits a nice wooden beach-chair…at the point 2 seals were checking me out and I them…much bigger bars were forming as part of Jeremy Point, one can go out quite a ways on them…I will return to explore during a super low tide and see how close I can get to Billingsgate Shoals…There is much more to explore on Great Island!

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.
