Cape Cod Waters: Photographs by Meg Clarke

Past, Present, Future by Meg Clarke; Photography

Since glaciers formed the outer reaches of Cape Cod tens of thousands of years ago, water has continued to shape and define this narrow land. In this unique place, light, shapes, colors, and patterns shift constantly with the tidal cycle, the time of day, the season, and the weather.

In Cape Cod Waters, photographer Meg Clarke captures a moment composed of those waters and the surrounding landscapes, expressing her vision.
