For the past 30 years, I have visited the island of Nantucket, which lies 30 miles out into the Atlanta Ocean, east of Boston, Massachusetts. This is a special place -- an island with a rich history, and amazing natural beauty. In the 1700's, until about 1850, Nantucket was the whaling capital of the world, and as a result a matriarchal society and one of the wealthiest communities in the United States. Today, it is a tourist destination, with a historic district that preserves much of the charm of the town of Nantucket from the whaling days. The island itself has a population of about 15,000 year-round inhabitents, which swells to more than 50,000 in summer. It is about 15 miles long and up to 6 miles wide, and almost 50% of the island is conservation land, consisting of beaches, moors, ponds, and forests. The images in these collections are focused on seascapes and other aspects of island life on Nantucket.
Fine art prints, in various sizes and surfaces, are available for all of the Nantucket images. Simply click on an image to view, and then options to order prints can be found below each photograph. Thanks. For more information, please contact me using the link below.
