Boardwalk Sunrise

Jan 05, 2015 - Boardwalk, Plum Island, Sunrise - 3 Comments - Standard

For me, 2014 will probably be remembered as the year of not so much shooting.  Between craziness at work, a busy schedule with my family, and a general lack of sufficient motivation, I just didn’t get out to shoot nearly as much as I would’ve liked.  I’m under no false illusion that 2015 will be prolific […]


Dec 18, 2014 - B&W, Marsh, Plum Island, Stream - 0 Comments - Standard

Not much to say about this image.  Living in New England I’m fortunate to have easy access to the many salt marshes in the area, and I’m always on the lookout for small and winding rivers and streams among the marshes such as this one.  With a better sky I would’ve left this shot in […]

Snowy Owl

As my mill and landscape images would indicate, I am not a wildlife photographer.  Nor do I own the necessary glass to be one.  I was, however, in the right place at the right time the other day, and came across this beauty just sitting on a branch waiting to be photographed.  I fortunately had […]

Moon Over Marsh

Oct 28, 2013 - Marsh, Moon, Plum Island, Sunrise - 4 Comments - Standard

Although I got up early to catch the sunrise on this cold morning, it was the setting moon that became the focus of my attention.  It was incredibly bright, and of course big, as it slowly set behind the marsh.  You can even catch a glimpse of it’s reflection in the water if you look […]

Boardwalk Dawn II

Oct 23, 2013 - Boardwalk, Plum Island, Sunrise - 5 Comments - Standard

Today’s image is another shot from my sunrise shoot this past weekend.  This angle is looking in the opposite direction on the same boardwalk as yesterday’s image.  It’s amazing how the light can change so much in the pre-dawn hours, both in terms of time and direction.  Looking at the two images, it’s hard to […]

Boardwalk Dawn

Boring sunrise aside, the colors in the sky were still kinda nice the other morning, and this boardwalk made for a pretty good leading line.  Or so says the guy trying compensate for getting up early for a sunrise that disappointed. Like this:Like Loading…

High and Dry

Happy Monday, and I hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day.  We spent the day at a wonderful beach house on Plum Island that was being rented by some of my wife’s family for the week (thanks Kerry and Ben!).  Late in the afternoon I spotted this boat from the deck, and managed to sneak […]

Rock Steady

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 […]

Good morning and happy Friday.  Towards the end of September I was at the beach at Plum Island on one of those warm fall days.  It was the middle of the day, so I decided to play around with some close-up and abstract wave images.  Here are a few of my favorites. Have a great […]
