While I was on Cape Cod last month, I seized the opportunity to photograph a bit of the area I've heard so much about. I only had a weekend, so I divided it between Martha's Vineyard one day and Provincetown the next, as any good tourist to the area would. I felt mildly successful in my efforts, but realize now how much better I could have spent my time. I am kicking myself for not reading it before the trip. It directly addresses all of the aspects you don't have time to experiment with yourself. I might want to get a sunset-over-water shot, but where is the best foreground interest? Which sand dunes will stay lit until the end? It would take years of trial and error to get that kind of knowledge, which is exactly what the author has put together in this book. Highly recommended if you're interested in getting the most out of your time on the cape.
