Fishing Shacks

Feb 21, 2017 - Colors, Maine, Ocean, Shack, Sunrise, Winter - 0 Comments - Standard

This was the original destination for our visit to Portland, ME this past weekend.  I had seen a few images of this location online, and finally had an opportunity to go up there and get a shot of my own.  Along with fellow photographers Bob Lussier and Mike Tully of course. These three shacks are […]

Marginal Way Sunrise

Dec 15, 2016 - Long Exposure, Maine, Ocean, Rocks, Sunrise - 2 Comments - Standard

As we brace for the first real arctic cold of the winter here in the northeast, I thought I’d post an image from warmer times.  This shot was captured this past summer in Ogunquit, Maine along the famous Marginal Way.  This mile-plus path winds it way along stunning rock cliffs  from Ogunquit beach to Perkins Cove, and […]

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 Over Boston

Aug 10, 2016 - Boston, City, Ocean, Skyline, Sunset - 0 Comments - Standard

The sunset over the city of Boston last night was spectacular.  I had chosen a new vantage point for some skyline shots, and was on the observation deck of the Custom House tower.  This building is a Boston landmark, and appears in many if not most images of the the Boston skyline.  Aside from being a beautiful structure […]

Sea Smoke at Sunrise

Jan 18, 2015 - Ocean, Portsmouth, Sea Smoke, Sunrise - 2 Comments - Standard

I love living in New England, and having access to some amazing places to photograph in all four seasons.  Now, while getting out to shoot at sunrise in the spring and summer take little motivation as the weather is warm, getting up in the dead of winter to capture the sun rising takes a bit […]

Stormy Motif

May 06, 2014 - Clouds, Long Exposure, Ocean, Rockport - 3 Comments - Standard

When you’re in a creative rut like I’ve been for the past few months, any old photo subject will do.  Even one that happens to be one of the most photographed and painted structures on the east coast, Motif #1 in Rockport, MA.  This thing has been documented to death, yet it’s still great place […]


Mar 24, 2014 - Bouys, Gloucester, Ocean, Reflection - 3 Comments - Standard

With Mother Nature taking us back to January-like weather this week, I thought I’d post an image from warmer times.  This was taken on a beautiful summer morning in 2012 in Gloucester, MA.  I remember thinking that I couldn’t recall ever seeing the ocean so calm as it was on that morning.

Old Orchard Beach Sunrise

Mar 04, 2014 - Maine, Ocean, Pier - 5 Comments - Standard

It’s back to Old Orchard Beach in Maine for today’s image.  This is actually the original color version of the B&W image I posted last week.  I’m still not sure which I prefer, but I thought I’d post both as I like each for different reasons. Like this:Like Loading…

Old Orchard Beach Pier

Feb 24, 2014 - B&W, Maine, Ocean, Pier - 4 Comments - Standard

This past weekend I decided to make the drive up to Old Orchard Beach in Maine to photograph its famous pier.  The forecast looked promising for a nice sunrise, with some clouds arriving at dawn and temps in the low 30’s (that’s pretty warm for Maine in February).  Well they got it half right.  It was a […]

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 […]
