In my time on Cape Cod I probably painted the dunes more often than any other subject (marshes would have to be a close second). To get to this spot, I followed (on the advice of a friend) an unmarked, overgrown dirt road for about two miles. I thought I'd taken the wrong road and was about to turn around when this view opened up. There was a simple elegance to these shapes that I found irresistible, and the morning haze over the water softened the light and color just a little. Wonderful spot.
