Frozen Sunrise

Mar 04, 2015 - Beach, Bridge, Gloucester, Sunrise - 4 Comments - Standard

Between the crazy winter we’ve had here in Massachusetts, and the craziness going on at work, I’ve unfortunately had little time to get out and shoot.   And less time to blog about my lack of shooting.  So I decided to remedy this, at least temporarily, by getting up early this past Sunday to photograph […]

While I love to enjoy a nice sunny day at the beach, my favorite time to be there is definitely first thing in the morning.  Virtually no people, and the only sound is that of the crashing waves.  Add in some nice clouds and you’ve something pretty special. Like this:Like Loading…

May 15, 2014 - Beach, Engagement, Salisbury - 1 Comments - Standard

I know you’re probably scratching your head and wondering why this post isn’t about lighthouses or abandoned mills, but occasionally I do branch out to other photographic endeavors. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of shooting an engagement session with a friend/former colleague and his beautiful fiancé.  They are a fantastic couple, and came […]

Peaceful Cove

Aug 26, 2013 - B&W, Beach, Long Exposure, Maine, Ocean, Ogunquit, Rocks, Water - 4 Comments - Standard

Today’s image was taken along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME.  As I mentioned the other day, Bob Lussier and I were there last week to help a friend teach a photography workshop.  It started in the afternoon, but I decided to head up early to do some sunrise shooting and spend the whole day. […]

Wishing Stones

Aug 23, 2013 - B&W, Beach, Ocean, Ogunquit, Rocks - 4 Comments - Standard

While the easiest reaction when seeing these towers of rocks and stones is to think that of aliens were here, it was pointed out to us that these are actually called wishing stones.  You’ll see them sporadically along parts of the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME, that is until you come across this one particular […]

Rock Steady

Feb 06, 2013 - B&W, Beach, Jetty, Landscapes, Long Exposure, Massachusetts, Ocean, Plum Island - 14 Comments - Standard

Just a quick post for today.  This is one of the jetties along Plum Island in Newburyport, MA.  I’ve posted shots of these rocks in the past, but thought I’d try a B&W long exposure for this one.  On cloudy or overcast days here, I almost always go in thinking about how an image will […]

Annisquam Rocks

Dec 19, 2012 - Annisquam, Beach, Boulders, Gloucester, Lighthouse, Low Tide, Massachusetts, Ocean, Rocks - 3 Comments - Standard

Before we made our way to the Cape Ann Tool Company this past weekend, Bob, Mike and I started our morning shooting at Annisquam Light in Gloucester.  I’ve shot this lighthouse many times, and my streak of being there with either clear or completely cloudy skies was still intact after this visit.  So instead of nice […]


Dec 06, 2012 - Beach, Ocean, Rocks, Shells, Water - 2 Comments - Standard

Sometimes an ordinary scene like a simple beach can look a lot more interesting just by changing your perspective.  For this shot I put my camera on the ground and focused on the immediate foreground with a relatively wide aperture to limit depth of field and to exaggerate the size of the tiny pebbles and […]
