Storm Front over Manhattan

A long exposure view of an approaching storm front over Manhattan.  This image was taken from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain and lightning could be seen off in the distance while there were still blue skies behind us. The rain eventually reached us about 15

Lightning over Manhattan

Was lucky enough to grab this image of lightning flashing over Manhattan during a quick photoshoot on the Manhattan Bridge during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain was starting to get heavy and there wasn’t any cover to attempt more chances.  

Rain in Manhattan

With a half-day at work because of the holiday weekend, and with a thunderstorm approaching, we decided to try and grab some images of the stormy weather over Manhattan.  Took this long exposure image from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest.

Beavertail Lighthouse in Rhode Island

This is a sunset image, taken with a 10-stop filter, of the Beavertail Lighthouse in Jamestown, RI.  We were up there during an AT&T hockey tournament near Boston, and decided to stay a few extra days for some photography. The rainy weather provided some nice cloud cover for the sunset.  This image is a 61
