The expansive sand and sky at low tide on Mayflower beach is unbeatable.

Love Cape Cod? Stay tuned for new photographs of Cape Cod taken by CapeCod.com’s photographer Kaitrin.

Kaitrin Acuna grew up in Connecticut and moved to Cape Cod after finishing college. She studied at the University of Connecticut and University College Dublin to obtain a BFA in Photography.

When she’s not exploring the Cape for CapeCod.com, Kaitrin is likely still with a camera in hand, working on a variety of fine art photo projects.

Over the past four years, she has received twelve artist grants to pursue a variety of photographic series around New England and Europe, and has exhibited in shows at the William Benton Museum of Art, the Ely Slade House Museum, as well as several local galleries.

Outside of the photographic world, Kaitrin can be found painting colorful art cars, trying new foods, and planning to travel wherever she can get to.

    Will any tall ships pass through the cape cod canal

  2. Absolutely amazing photos! Cannot keep my eyes away.

  3. Gerry Doyle says

    Am really surprised that Fort Hill in Eastham was not listed!!! Shame on you!!! It is the most gorgeous site for photographers!!!

    • DONNA WEST says

      Fort Hill faces East….great for Sunrises…..not so for Sunsets.
      The sun sets in the west….therefore facing west looking out over the water on Cape Cod Bay or on Nantucket Sound are where you will get the best Sunset shots.

  4. Jon Peter Dahlborg says

    Great photography is a result of going out and finding that great shot, be it a landscape, seascape, city/townscape or anywhere your creativity brings you!

  5. These are incredibly mediocre shots.

    • I agree with Steve. I think they are impressive if you’ve never seen Cape Cod before but otherwise, they are pretty “run of the mill”. For example, the one of the White Cedar swamp doesn’t do that are justice. Just looking at the base of a tree isn’t impressive. There’s a lot in that swamp that one would never expect to see on the Cape.

      • Rebecca Whitney says

        Any photograph that makes someone look and talk about it is a “successful” photograph. I didn’t realize that this forum was a critique column. If you “Andi” and “Steve” are professional photographers, then please, by all means, show us your spectacular work; we’re all waiting. And
        Kaitrin, nice work.

    • What a negative overly critical mind set Steve and Andi. Nothing like squelching people’s creativity and enjoyment with that attitude.

  6. Nice work Kaitrin, thanks for sharing. I’ve been coming to the Cape since my college years in the sixties and now live here permanently and still appreciate nice photos of this beautiful piece of earth.

  7. I can see nothing more obnoxious than everytime I move to another photograph, I get a pop up advertisement. (located in the photograph ) Is this what Cape Cod is about? Commercialism and advertising?
