Portland Head Light Rocks

Feb 19, 2017 - Lighthouse, Long Exposure, Portland, Rocks, Sunrise - 1 Comments - Standard

What a morning I had yesterday.  Bob Lussier, Mike Tully and I headed out early to shoot a different location in South Portland, ME (images to follow in a future post), and decided to visit Portland Head Light afterwards. Although we arrived past sunrise, the light was still sweet, and allowed us time to explore all […]

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 […]

Thacher Island

Aug 15, 2014 - Island, Lighthouse, Rocks, Sunrise - 3 Comments - Standard

Creating this image set a new record for me in terms of getting up early for a photograph.  I recently had the opportunity to visit Thacher Island at sunrise, an opportunity which only happens once a year.   I left my house at 3am for a ferry (or technically a small floating bathtub) that was leaving […]

Standing Silent

Jan 30, 2014 - B&W, Landscapes, Maine, Ocean, Ogunquit, Rocks - 4 Comments - Standard

It’s been several days since my last blog post as my new job has been keeping me quite busy.  But I’m back today with a shot from the archives that I rediscovered the other day. This was from a fall visit to Ogunquit, Maine a few years back.  Anyone who has ever visited this wonderful […]

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 […]

Peaceful Cove

Aug 26, 2013 - B&W, Beach, Long Exposure, Maine, Ocean, Ogunquit, Rocks, Water - 4 Comments - Standard

Today’s image was taken along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME.  As I mentioned the other day, Bob Lussier and I were there last week to help a friend teach a photography workshop.  It started in the afternoon, but I decided to head up early to do some sunrise shooting and spend the whole day. […]

Wishing Stones

Aug 23, 2013 - B&W, Beach, Ocean, Ogunquit, Rocks - 4 Comments - Standard

While the easiest reaction when seeing these towers of rocks and stones is to think that of aliens were here, it was pointed out to us that these are actually called wishing stones.  You’ll see them sporadically along parts of the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME, that is until you come across this one particular […]

Gloucester Sunset

Aug 14, 2013 - Gloucester, Ocean, Rocks, Sunset, Water - 5 Comments - Standard

Another sunset, another image from Gloucester.  This is part of Wingaersheek Beach which is located in the western part of Gloucester.  It runs along the Annisquam River and Ipswich Bay, and is a great family beach.  There’s a sandbar off the beach that’s exposed at low tide, allowing you to walk hundreds of yards out.  And […]
