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 […]

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 […]

Blue Canopies

Sep 17, 2013 - Boats, Fog, Harbor, Rockport - 3 Comments - Standard

I just love the mood that fog can add to a harbor scene.  This is Rockport Harbor, and was taken on an early morning that I had hoped would provide a beautiful sunset.  To me, this is the next best thing. Like this:Like Loading…

Yacht Club

Sep 09, 2013 - B&W, Building, Rockport, Window - 3 Comments - Standard

This building/shed at the Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport caught my eye the other day while I was there photographing the harbor. Those are sailboat masts in the background, and I was drawn to the various lines and textures that this scene provided.  The light was very flat, so I decided to convert to […]

Morning Fog

Sep 05, 2013 - Boats, Fog, Harbor, Ocean, Rockport - 3 Comments - Standard

Just a quick post for today.  My son was kind enough to wake up my wife and I around 4:30 the other morning.  So instead of going back to sleep, I decided to grab my gear and head out to catch a sunrise.  As much as I was disappointed that the area was socked in […]

Rockport Fireworks

Aug 30, 2013 - Fireworks, Night, Rockport - 2 Comments - Standard

As I mentioned the other day, Rockport, MA held its first fireworks show a few weeks ago on a picture perfect night.  This was the first time they’ve done them here, and I wasn’t sure exactly how far away they would be visible.  I took a chance with this location so I could get the […]

Rockport Harbor

Aug 28, 2013 - Boats, Harbor, Ocean, Rockport - 4 Comments - Standard

While most people (myself included) typically aim their cameras at the iconic Motif #1 while shooting at Rockport Harbor, the view in the other direction ain’t so bad either.  This was taken a few weeks ago on the night that Rockport held it’s first ever public fireworks display.  I’m saving the images from that for […]

Harbor Glow

Jun 19, 2013 - Harbor, Long Exposure, Ocean, Rockport - 2 Comments - Standard

It’s back to Rockport, MA and Motif #1 for today’s post.  I know I’ve probably posted too many shots of this iconic location, but you’ll have to indulge me another one.  This was taken this past winter on one of those cold and very crisp evenings when the sun seems to set just after lunch. […]
