Bay/Sky, Provincetown by Joel Meyerowitz (1976-77)

The photograph “Bay/Sky, Provincetown” is the work of artist Joel Meyerowitz, captured in the period of 1976-77. It depicts a serene and picturesque coastal scene. In the photograph, the tranquil beauty of a beach is captured with a clear demarcation of golden sand leading into the calm, shallow waters of the bay. The water’s surface glistens under a bright, expansive sky, which occupies the top half of the image and merges seamlessly into the horizon.

A thin strip of sand extends into the bay, surrounded by the shallow water, creating a natural pathway. On this sandbar, sailboats are visible in the distance, with one sail unfurled, adding a sense of leisure and recreation to the scene. In the foreground, two smaller boats are beached on the shore, with one person sitting nearby, contributing to the overall atmosphere of peace and relaxation. The image conveys a sense of solitude and tranquility, inviting viewers to appreciate the simplicity and beauty of the coastal landscape.
