Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change. Thankfully, in the northern hemisphere, the summer months allow for the best milky way viewing fairly…

Break in the Storm

The past couple of days in Southeastern New England have been a bit of a heat wave. And being from Massachusetts, we all know that heatwaves usually break with thunderstorms!

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…

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…

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:…

Waiting to be known

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. – Carl Sagan Star trail photography really fascinates me. While it looks like the stars are all moving at different speeds, what we’re really looking at is the rotation of the earth on its axis. The axis point is the spot where you can see little to…

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…

Frozen Night 02

Spent some time driving around late one night after a snowstorm in southern New England. The snow had ended and sky cleared up just after sundown so all the snow froze on the trees. An absolutely gorgeous night. This was taken right on the border of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, in Adamsville.

Big Ol’ Blue

Spent some time with some of my Automattic colleagues exploring the Canyon Resort in Park City, Utah. Can’t get enough of the sky, especially when one can experiment with so many different foreground elements.

Stars over Utah

Not really much to say here, except… Utah is fantastic. 😛

Nighttime in New England

Spending some time out at Horseneck Beach late one night. Horseneck is a great spot that offers up some great sand dunes with those traditional New England beach fences that I love. Edits: brightness, contrast, color adj., and added noise. Meta: 18mm @ f2.8, 25 seconds, ISO 6400.
