Old Orchard Beach Sunrise

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 […]

Fishing at Sunrise

Good morning, happy Tuesday, and I hope everyone enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.  It’s hard to believe the summer is over, but I have to admit that I’m already looking forward to the fall and the wonderful New England foliage season. Today’s post is another image from Salem Willows Park.  This pier is a popular […]

Tall Ships at Sunrise

Well I’m back after a week of vacation at home and time away from the blog.  I had a fantastic week with my family full of fun day trips and some much needed R&R.  While I certainly love to take vacations to new and interesting places, sometimes a staycation at home is still the best. […]

Beacon Marine

Today’s post comes from Gloucester, MA.  This is one of those places that I’ve driven past several times, and finally decided to stop and grab a few shots.  It’s also a place that looks much better against a stormy sky than a sunny or colorful one.  Or at least to me it does. Camera settings: […]

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 […]

Today’s post is another image from my trip up to Rockport, MA in late November.  As it was my first time there, I was trying a variety of different angles and perspectives on Motif #1, the famous fishing shack you see in the background.  When I was done, I came home and started reviewing the […]

It’s back to Kittery Point, Maine for today’s post.  This is the same pier from this post, just taken from the other side.  It was a freezing cold evening, but with a beautiful sunset.  It’s amazing how we can tolerate such extreme conditions when Mother Nature puts on a show.  There’s no way I would’ve […]

Here is another image of downtown Boston from Lo Presti Park in East Boston, taken on the same day as yesterday’s post.  This was the last shot I took that frigid night, and the exposure was shorter than I had wanted due to my desire to get back in my car before my fingers fell […]
