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

First Light, A Little Late.

Happy New Year! My apologies for being a few days late. I was so preoccupied with putting together my end of the year post that I completely forgot to commemorate the beginning of the new one.

First Light.

If You Can’t Be With The One You Love.

When You Want This, But Are Given This. What Do You Do? Do you give up and go home? Or do you embrace it? All too often we landscape photographers head out with rigid expectations of what we want to photograph and how we want to photograph it. So much so that we can be… Read More
