    Taken at 5:27 am 1/30 sec ? / 8.0, ISO 50 28mm Leica Q3 Summilux lens. Operated by the U.S. Coast Guard from 1897 until 1944, the building was originally located at Nauset Beach near the entrance to Chatham Harbor. In 1977 it was floated by barge to Provincetown and rehabilitated to become a museum as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Beyond my fascination with this building, I am continually drawn to the endless dunes and sea that surround us at the end of Cape Cod.

    This was my example of someone coming back from a long hiatus as a much better version of themself. I took a break from photography and I came back to it with a new camera, new shooting knowledge, new editing knowledge, and a renewed drive to become better. I always thought my sunset photos were lacking, so I sought out advice on how to properly shoot and edit them better. This was me pushing myself to be better at something that I felt I couldn't do well and I feel like I've conquered that.

    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
