"Becalmed" by Ken Dorman
If you like photos that convey the solitude of the Cape's quiet corners, then you'll love Ken Dorman's shots, taken with a Canon 5D. The photo above was taken at Short Wharf Creek in Yarmouth in September of 2007 with a 28-105mm, 5-4.5 lens, set at 105mm. Other settings: f/6.3, 1/400 sec., ISO 200.
The following month, he returned and got a similar shot, from a slightly different angle:

He used the same 28-105mm lens, set at 105mm, f/5.6, 1/160 sec., ISO100.
Even his action shots convey a sense of isolation...
"Hitching a Ride" by Ken Dorman
