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!

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…

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

A cobblestone road stands the test of time in historic New Bedford, Massachusetts. New Bedford was once “The city that lit the world” due to its massive whaling industry. Print available at Midnight Shift Photography

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.

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.

Perseids Meteors

Spending time out on Gooseberry Island in Westport, Massachusetts last night. It’s one of the few spots in my area with little light pollution. I’m always astounded when I can view upon our distant stars. Last night was extremely amazing due to the Perseids Meteor Shower. Since the moon was nowhere to be seen, the…

After the Storm

Today I saw / heard some of the most severe thunderstorms I’ve ever experienced in my life. I was working on my couch mid-afternoon with the windows open listening to some thunder in the distance. Suddenly a bright flash struck above the building across from my apartment. It was so close I felt a wave…

Milky Way over Buzzards Bay

I like to adventure late at night when it’s quiet and peaceful… one of my favorite locations in the world, which I’ve been photographing for many years, is Gooseberry Island in Westport, Massachusetts. One of the issues I often run into in Southeastern MA and RI is the amount of noise pollution. The lights from…

My front yard

Across the street from my apartment is one of the first mill buildings that was constructed in Fall River, Massachusetts. It’s got some beauty.
