The Underwater Lily Series of William Scully's fine art photography blends the viewpoints of an artistic and scientific observer who brings to his local Cape outings the spirit and focus of an explorer. Mr. Scully's photographs will be on exhibit at the Salt Pond Visitor Center classroom in June.

As an avid SCUBA diver, and drawn to water and conditions with unusual light, Mr. Scully has travelled to oceans around the globe, with his DSLR camera in a plexiglass case. Even with these experiences, he finds the local kettle ponds on Cape Cod to be one of the best places for his underwater artistic compositions.

Mr. Scully has enjoyed recognition for his work by winning the non-professional "Nature Photographer of the Year" title of the International Photography Awards in 2011, and was nominated for a Lucie Award from the same organization. He is based in Jamaica Plain and Truro Massachusetts.

Because our unique pond landscapes are also the subject of years of monitoring by national seashore science staff, Mr. Scully and Cape Cod National Seashore mapping specialist. This one hour program will take place on June 21, at 2 PM, at the Salt Pond Visitor Center, Eastham, and is free.

Mark Adams has been the national seashore GIS specialist since 1992, working with the natural resources team to document coastal change, hydrology, vegetation, and wildlife. He is also a painter/video artist and has exhibited in local galleries.
