The Quiet Amsterdam Canals

While in Amsterdam with some colleagues this past February, we stayed on a houseboat for a couple of nights located on one of the canals. The gentle rocking of the boat at night was a wonderful way to fall asleep. While I found Amsterdam to be a bustling city during the day, it became quite…

Star Trails over Sakonnet Point

Sometimes the best star trails are captured during very cold nights on the beach. Taken at Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, Rhode Island. In the distance you can see Little Cormorant Rock Lighthouse.

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars to…

Never Sleep

People often miss out on so much by going to sleep…    

Tree of Light

One of my favorite local places to visit is Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, Massachusetts. An old farm converted into a brewery. In the summer, the front of the farm is lively and bustling. Come winter, the crowds die down and a few die hard communitarians remain. In this case, not many people were around…

Out of Focus

A lot of folks strive to take super crisp photos, as one usually should! On the other hand, sometimes it’s fun to get creative and alter the way light is absorbed into your camera’s sensor (or film!). It often makes the subject matter unrecognizable, but in doing so you create an entirely new subject matter……

Connected with Everything.

“…If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.” – Alan Watts

Stuck in the Ice Two

Spending a frosty evening photographing Battleship Cove, in Fall River, Massachusetts during the winter of 2015. The USS Massachusetts is part of a large collection of naval vessels from World War II. This is the second photo in this series. Check out the first one! Temperature: 10 degrees F. Wind Chill: I couldn’t feel my…

Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia

As a native New Englander, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in the mountains of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Massachusetts. I’ve been hiking and camping since I was just a small kid. Of course, the Appalachian Mountain Range isn’t the tallest or most extreme in the world, but they’re still amazing and I…

The Salty Beach Tomatoes

A common sight on any New England beach is the beach tomato plant. This is actually an invasive species of Rose (Rosa_rugosa) that originates from Asia, but now occupies just about every beach along the coast of the north eastern United States! The rose hips resemble that of small tomatoes, but definitely shouldn’t be eaten!

Looking into infinity

CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. HOBBES: How so? CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day. HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek. CALVIN:…

The Looming Raincloud

Star Trails as the Storm Rolls in…

Over the past week the moon has been high and it’s been bright out – right up until the summer solstice with the full moon last night. Prints can be purchased at Midnight Shift Photography As usual, I took a late night stroll with my camera near the World War II lookout towers at Gooseberry…

The Foggy Causeway

“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”

Sweeping Snow on Mt Chocorua

In early December 2015, a few friends and myself ascended mt. chocorua on a relatively mild day (at the base of the mountain anyway). As we hiked up a trail from the kancamagus highway, the temperature quickly dropped as expected! We spent a bit of time in the late afternoon at the summit, the temperature hovered…

Infrared in the Summer

Took this shot at Grays Mill in Little Compton, Rhode Island (Adamsville, Rhode Island) during the summer of 2015. This isn’t photoshopped – it was shot with a super color Infrared converted canon xti, with a custom white balance I set! Interested in a print? Head on over to http://midnight-shift.photo
