Artist's Description

Click on photo to view larger. The swans will get larger, too, but not big enough to do you mischief.

Rockport, Massachusetts, is a timeless sort of place, but the tide continues to have a mind of its own. Here is one end of Front Beach with its iconic observation tower, beloved of painters & photographers & climbers & waterfowl & other bits of flotsam. Mute Swans wibble-wobble their way along the sand (when I got there, they were afloat), in company with a Herring Gull or two, & a handful of Mallards. And brave souls clamber behind them. The little tower was built sometime in the early 20th century ~ an old photo postcard, dated 1905, shows the length of Front Beach sans tower, but I know from personal experience that it has been there for at least 48 years….

The sign by the tower says PRIVATE PROPERTY ~ Get Back on the Beach, Morons, or words to that effect. Not sure who owns it. I’m sure who ever it is is fearful of imminent litigation when a trespasser falls upon a swan & gets savaged. The rocks could do some damage, too, but at least they are passive.

It was a brilliant blue day when I took this photo last week, but I decided to convert it. This kind of clarity works well in any format.
