Portland Head Light Rocks

Feb 19, 2017 - Lighthouse, Long Exposure, Portland, Rocks, Sunrise - 1 Comments - Standard

What a morning I had yesterday.  Bob Lussier, Mike Tully and I headed out early to shoot a different location in South Portland, ME (images to follow in a future post), and decided to visit Portland Head Light afterwards. Although we arrived past sunrise, the light was still sweet, and allowed us time to explore all […]

Nubble Spotlight

Jan 29, 2017 - Clouds, Lighthouse, Maine, Sunset - 2 Comments - Standard

It had been quite some time since I last visited Nubble Light in York, ME, so I decided to make the short trip up there this afternoon to catch the sunset. The tide was low and the water was as calm as I’ve seen it, but the sky made up for it with some nice […]

Morris Island Lighthouse

Nov 10, 2016 - Jetty, Lighthouse, Ocean, Rocks, South Carolina, Sunrise - 3 Comments - Standard

  Taking a break from the fall foliage images with a lighthouse shot from my recent visit to Charleston, SC.  The Morris Island Lighthouse, a non-working lighthouse just north of Folly Beach at the entrance to Charleston Harbor, stands just a few hundred feet off the coast. It’s 161 feet tall, and was completed in 1876.  Over time, jetties were […]

Sunset at Eastern Point Light

Jul 07, 2015 - Eastern Point, Gloucester, Lighthouse, Sunset - 1 Comments - Standard

  During the 4th of July weekend, Bob Lussier and I decided to go up to Gloucester, MA to try and catch the fireworks exploding over the lighthouse.  Well I decided, and dragged him with me.  Unfortunately, the fireworks ended up being too far away from the lighthouse, and thus too low in the sky.  I […]

Block Island North Light

May 26, 2015 - Block Island, Lighthouse, Rhode Island, Sunset - 7 Comments - Standard

  Over the Memorial Day weekend, my family and I had the opportunity to spend a few days on Block Island with some family and friends.  It’s a beautiful little island off the coast of Rhode Island, and has the quintessential look and feel of New England with its shingled homes, several beaches, lots of shops and […]

Thacher Island

Aug 15, 2014 - Island, Lighthouse, Rocks, Sunrise - 3 Comments - Standard

Creating this image set a new record for me in terms of getting up early for a photograph.  I recently had the opportunity to visit Thacher Island at sunrise, an opportunity which only happens once a year.   I left my house at 3am for a ferry (or technically a small floating bathtub) that was leaving […]

Reaching for the Light

Feb 10, 2014 - Lighthouse, Maine, Ocean, Portland - 4 Comments - Standard

Doesn’t it look like these tree branches are reaching toward the lighthouse?  Well even if they aren’t, this is a bit of a different take on this iconic lighthouse.  Portland Head Light has been photographed so many times, it’s hard to find a unique spin on it.  This is my attempt.

Winter Chill

Jan 23, 2014 - B&W, Lighthouse, Long Exposure, Maine, Ocean - 5 Comments - Standard

Another image today from Portland Head Light in Maine.  No sun at sunrise usually means I’ll convert most images to black & white, especially long exposures like this one (yesterday’s post was an exception).  It was a cold 5 minutes waiting for this exposure, but ultimately worth the wait.  When it’s still early and the […]

Dawn at the Light

Jan 21, 2014 - Lighthouse, Maine, Ocean, Portland, Sunrise - 7 Comments - Standard

Today’s image is an early morning shot of one of Maine’s lesser known lighthouses, Portland Head Light.  OK, just kidding.  As anyone from New England will tell you, this is supposedly the most photographed lighthouse in the U.S.  Or maybe Nubble Light is.  Anyway… I haven’t photographed Portland Head Light in way too many years, […]

Frozen Sunrise

Jan 06, 2014 - Ice, Lighthouse, Ocean, Rockport, Rocks, Sunrise - 7 Comments - Standard

Sunrise photography in the winter can be a double-edge sword.  On the one hand, you’ve got the sun coming up past 7 am, which means sleeping a bit later than you would for a summer sunrise.  The other hand is of course a cold hand.  As in freezing cold temperatures. We’ve had some really cold […]
