I Don’t Do Lighthouses.

Really I don’t. Though these pictures may lead you to believe otherwise, lighthouses really don’t do much for me. Sure they’re pretty, they’re scenic, and they’re about as iconic New England as it gets, blah, blah, blah. Everything a lighthouse aficionado could possibly want. Still, even though there are several quite photogenic lighthouses within short… Read More

Fort Foster ~ Part 2: The Rocks (and maybe a lighthouse).

So Many Rocks! Sandy beaches are for relaxing on a hot July day, and Maine has them if that’s your thing. But, if you’re a seascape photographer a nice sandy beach can seem rather boring. Ok, I lied, sandy beaches aren’t “rather boring,” as far as I’m concerned smooth sandy beaches are the equivalent of… Read More

Fort Foster ~ Part 1: The Pier

My Favorite Fort. Located along the shore of Gerrish Island in Kittery Point, Fort Foster was once part of the U.S. coastal defense system. Active from 1901 thru 1946, the fort is now part of Fort Foster Park, and managed by the town of Kittery, Maine. The park is a year ’round favorite with everyone… Read More

12, Give Or Take, From The Fire.

2020, a year in through the lens. I know I’m not the only one who’s happy we’re finally putting the dumpster fire that was 2020 behind us. It was a year that started out strong for many of us, then cratered miserably for far too many. Coming through the last year unscathed creatively was no… Read More

Went to Maine.

Made some photos. My daughter and I got up bright and early and headed to the Maine coast for sunrise. Here are a few SOOC* images that I kind of liked. *that’s Straight Out Of Camera in case you were wondering. No editing, with the exception of straightening the horizon in the first image, just… Read More

Isolation Project, Day 5.

Are we having fun yet? Still stuck at home, though not sure for how much longer. The New Hampshire Governor has just issued a stay at home order, yet the list of “essential” businesses is long. Unfortunately, my day job as an auto mechanic is on that list. Rest assured I’m going to do my… Read More

My Beautiful Balloon.

Up, Up, and Away! This weekend the hot air balloons arrive in Pittsfield, New Hampshire for the 38th Annual Suncook Valley Rotary Hot Air Balloon Rally, one of my favorite events to photograph! From the sunrise liftoff, to Saturday evenings Night Glow and the fireworks that follow, there’s fun for everyone, not just us photographer… Read More

The Gamble.

One of the things I look for when planning a sunrise photo shoot along the seacoast is for a weather front to be passing out to sea. The hope is that the leading edge of the front will reach the horizon at roughly the same time as the sun, giving the sun a chance to… Read More

Calm Before The Storm.

With a winter storm bearing down on the Northeast, with as much as 20″ of snow expected in some parts of New Hampshire, Saturday morning looked like it was going to be my only window of opportunity to venture out for a few photographs this past weekend. So with high hopes I headed to the… Read More

First Light.

Welcoming the New Year along the New Hampshire Coast. Since first picking up a camera a little over 10 years ago it’s become a bit of a tradition for me to head to the New Hampshire seacoast to capture the first sunrise of the New Year. This year was no different. Due to an over… Read More
