Dawn at the Pier

Feb 14, 2014 - Martha's Vineyard, Ocean, Pier, Sunrise - 3 Comments - Standard

Every so often I’ll be out shooting sunrise, and the sky will magically take on this eery orange glow before the sun comes up over the horizon.  While I still prefer a sky full of illuminated clouds, sometimes these single color sunrises can be quite impressive. This one comes from Martha’s Vineyard from a trip […]

Edgartown Light

For today’s post we go back to Martha’s Vineyard once again.  This is Edgartown Light, which I’ve shot countless times before.  One of the great things about this lighthouse is that it’s ok to shoot it countless times because it provides so many angles, compositions, points of view, etc.  You can shoot it tight, or […]

Endless Pier

It’s a quick post for today with a visit back to my trip to Martha’s Vineyard last fall.  For this shot I tried some brackets for an HDR shot as well as some long exposures, but wasn’t happy with the results.  After much playing around, I ended up blending one of the brackets with one […]

Streaks of Light

So it’s back to Martha’s Vineyard for today’s post.  This image is a little bit unusual, but I was playing around with some long exposures and thought this one came out kinda cool.  It’s a shot of the Chappaquiddick Ferry, more commonly known as the Chappy Ferry, that runs across Edgartown Harbor to Chappaquiddick Island. […]

Wastin’ Time

  For today’s post, we go back to the Vineyard.  When I was processing this shot, I kept finding myself trying to sing the classic Otis Redding song The Dock of the Bay, hence the title of the post.  It was a beautiful sunrise and a very peaceful morning, and I actually don’t think I […]

Reflections of Color

Anytime I find myself shooting near a harbor, I always look for opportunities to capture a boat’s reflection in the water.  What I really like is the potential of these scenes.  Depending on how calm or rough the water is, as well as the time of day, the colors of the boat hulls reflecting on […]

Stop Staring at Me

This is another shot from my recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard.  This would have been a beautiful scene had this boat not been docked there, but it became that much more compelling because of it.  Those eyes are both interesting and a little creepy, and just seemed to add another layer to the image. And […]

Two Rocks

Just a quick post for today, and apologies for the lame title.  This was taken on Lucy Vincent Beach in Chilmark on the Vineyard.  During the summer months, it’s a very exclusive private beach, but it is open to the public in the offseason.  It’s really quite beautiful with these boulders strewn around the beach […]

Closed for the Season

Gay Head Lighthouse is one of the most iconic landmarks on Martha’s Vineyard.  It sits atop the beautiful clay cliffs in the town of Aquinnah (formerly Gay Head) at the western end of the island.  It’s probably the most photographed lighthouse on the island, and it’s stunning location makes it a popular spot for wedding […]
