Last July I went back up to Brownfield, Maine to do some camping with friends. The stars were as gorgeous as ever up there. I created a bunch of shots, including some really long exposures of star trails, with a fire roaring at our campsite. It did an amazing job of illuminating the trees inContinue reading “Stargazing in the deep woods”
“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returnedContinue reading “Stars above the Mountains”
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”
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 toContinue reading “Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.”
People often miss out on so much by going to sleep…
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…”
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.
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”
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, theContinue reading “Perseids Meteors”
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”
