This is the Sagamore Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal. What you are seeing here is a rescue mission. I saw the boat on the left come through the canal and then just suddenly stop. I assumed they were just taking in the view. However, about ten minutes later the Onset Coastal Patrol boat was skimming through the channel. Over the PA I could hear them tell the other boat to tie the rope they were going to throw to their boat (it only took approx. 3 tries to get the rope to them). Once everyone was connected they towed the boat back to shore. Not an overly exciting rescue mission but it did give me an opportunity to take a picture.
I hadn't been down the Cape in a few years. I think this was the first time I had gone over the bridge since they removed the rotary. It was a very smooth ride. Luckily, I went down early enough to beat the traffic (later in the day it was very congested). I attended a photography seminar given by Rick Sammon. He is an amazing travel photographer. It was a terrific workshop and I learned a great deal from him. Rick stresses the importance of 'seeing the light.' I realize I have a long way to go in order to see the light and choosing the best exposure settings but a few things are starting to click (pun intended).
