Marconi Beach – Wellfleet, MA

Marconi Beach is one of my favorite places along the Cape Cod National Seashore. It is famed for its high sand cliffs, and it is reputed to have some of the finest sand of any beach on the Cape. It was named for the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi, who operated a wireless station not far from the beach area, and in 1903 facilitated the sending of the first trans-Atlantic message between then U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt and King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom.

The color frames below were captured digitally, while the black and white frames were captured using Kodak T-Max 400:
