10pm on an unsuspecting Thursday. I took out the recycling and noticed some seriously dramatic clouds sweeping through the sky under the moon. I grabbed my equipment and took to the street with my slippers on like an old man. The newly renovated Cornell Lofts are basically my front yard. They helped to make aContinue reading “Clouds sweeping over Fall River”
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 fairlyContinue reading “Pathway to the Stars”
People often miss out on so much by going to sleep…
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 myContinue reading “Stuck in the Ice Two”
A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. AContinue reading “The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain”
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:Continue reading “Looking into infinity”
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 toContinue reading “Waiting to be known”
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 GooseberryContinue reading “Star Trails as the Storm Rolls in…”
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
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.
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.
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.
Capturing another long exposure at Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, Rhode Island!
Lately I’ve been really digging deep into astrophotography. Limitless possibilities to experiment and capture amazing imagery. Caught this exposure the other night during the Perseid meteor shower on Gooseberry Island in Westport, Massachusetts. Can you see the milky way galaxy in the background? Sometimes it’s easy to forget the earth rotates. This is a 10Continue reading “Star Trails”
A great big olde tree covered in spanish moss, just outside of Orlando, Florida.
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 fromContinue reading “Milky Way over Buzzards Bay”
