Cape Ann is located on the coast some 43 miles northeast of Boston, Massachusetts. It includes the towns of Rockport and Gloucester and is home of The Second Annual Lobsta Fest and Seafood Extravaganza! The photos in this gallery were also shot in Essex, Magnolia and Manchester by the Sea. Autumn in Massachusetts may be the best in the country. Some of my favorite locations on Cape Ann are Plum Cove, Lanes Cove, Rockport Harbor, Gloucester Harbor, Rocky Neck, Atlantic Road, Halibut Point, Buswell Pond, Annisquam, Lobster Cove and Hoop Pole Cove. All of these locations afford excellent photo opportunities. I would love to photograph Cape Ann in the winter but, the weather is too unpredictable. So I will have to leave the winter photos for my brother-in-law, Todd Harrington, of Plum Cove Photography, who lives in Gloucester.
