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…

Roads through the ages

End of Days

When humanity fades, nature will begin again.

Experience the Warmth

I’d like to close my eyes, go numb But there’s a cold wind coming from The top of the highest high rise today It’s not a breeze ‘cuz it blows hard Yes and it wants me to discard The humanity I know, watched the warmth blow away So don’t let the world bring you down…

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…

Tourin’ the Bayou. An ecosystem in danger.

During a recent road trip to New Orleans (yeah, I drove from Massachusetts to New Orleans, I know I’m crazy), my friend Phil and I had the pleasure of taking an Airboat tour of a local bayou about 45 minutes south of NOLA.   On our trip, our captain who is a local cajun who’s…

Stormy Skies over Sakonnet Point

Late one sunny afternoon in March, while going for a drive, I had noticed some extremely dark clouds rolling in from the west. I made it to Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, Rhode Island, where I waited for the clouds to hit. I didn’t know it at the time, but those angry little clouds were…

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.

Both myself and my cat Marv, kinda got roasted by Jesse

For those who don’t know, I work at a distributed company called Automattic. Once a year, virtually all our employees descend on a central location (like locusts) to work together and have a blast. At the time of this post, I believe we’re a little over 400 people strong making the web a better place. Also at…

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.
