SLT Hosts Sunrise Photography at Brainard Marsh

Marian Howell, local landscape and nature photographer, will host sunrise photography at Brainard Marsh on Saturday, June 15starting early at 4:30 am. All types of cameras are welcome – cellphones, compacts, dslrs, whatever you use – or just join us to experience one of the earliest sunrises of the year! Enjoy and explore this special time of day at this very splendid sunrise location.

            Photographers love the pre-dawn time, known as the blue hour, followed by the low-angled post-dawn light, known as the golden hour. Sunrise that day is at 5:07 am so plan to arrive at 4:30 am to walk to the beach (bring a flashlight or wear a headlamp) to catch the end of the blue hour. As the sun comes up over the horizon and golden hour begins, discover the images the light brings out on the beach, the marsh, the pond, and the woods. And you will be back home in time for breakfast!

            Please contact the Sippican Lands Trust office if you plan on attending sunrise photography by sending an email to If poor weather requires rescheduling, then Sippican Lands Trust will post information about a new date to by Noon on Friday, June 14.

            Parking for Brainard Marsh is located near the corner of Bass Point Road and Delano Road (look for the Sippican Lands Trust’s Brainard Marsh sign). Parking is limited and please be careful while parking vehicle, better yet, ride your bike to Brainard Marsh and leave your car at home.
