    The Brewster Flats are tidal flats on Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts, particularly near the town of Brewster, and are a unique environment.

    They are the widest expanse of tidal flats in North America, rivaled in the western hemisphere only by a similar expanse in Brazil.
    The flats extend all the way to North Eastham.

    I like to visit at least once each year, always beautiful.

    Sand Waves. The rapidly receding tide makes beautiful patterns.

    Can I get a bucket of steamers and a couple of long necks to go with those? :)

    Reminds me of the Joel Meyerowitz Cape Light photos. Great series!

    Hey Alan, we visit Eastham, bay side. I didn't know all those facts you mentioned.

    Also (from Eastham at least), you can see the sun set into the water to the West. That's pretty rare!

    Bay side of the Cape is a pretty magical place, IMO.

    Here's some shots we've had over the years there. Might not all be m43 cameras.

    I agree, the Bay side is lovely. Nearly every day folks troop down Point of Rocks road late afternoon to watch the sunset. We do love the Brewster area, being able to walk a mile or more out toward Provincetown when the tide goes out is just a special experience.

    I like that sepia treatment. Did you sharpen it a bit, too? Nice!

    Yes. I have two or three "standard" workflow approaches. The sepia (antique plate) image posted here went as follows.

    Camera RAW
    Aperture 3 / no presets
    NIK- Output sharpener (very minor all levels left neutral)
    NIK - Silver EFX - Antique Plate as my starting base - then tweak to taste.

    Cheers, Alan
