Marshall Point Lighthouse Panorama

Four image panorama of the Marshall Point Lighthouse located in Port Clyde, ME.

Portland Head Light Sepia

Close up of the Portland head Light about 30 minutes before sunrise.  Post-processed with sepia tones.

Beavertail Lighthouse Panorama

Arrived early hoping for a sunset shot but the clouds were too thick over head.  This is a five-shot panorama view of the lighthouse:

Foggy Morning at Pemaquid

Foggy and misty morning at Pemaquid Lighthouse in Maine.  No sunrise ever occurred but the twilight blue with the lighthouse beaming looked moody:

Cloudy Morning at Portland Head

Four image, long exposure panorama of the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, ME.  Cloudy weather ruined the sunrise but set up a moody shot:    

Portland Head Stormy Weather

No sunrise because of bad weather but waves were bigger than usual:

Beavertail Lighthouse at Sunrise

Another long exposure image of the Beavertail Lighthouse taken just after sunrise at the Beavertail State park in Rhode Island. Used a 10-stop neutral density filter to help achieve this 60 sec exposure.

Beavertail Lighthouse at Dawn

This is a low angle view of the Beavertail Lighthouse taken just before sunrise at Beavertail State park in Rhode Island.  Used a mini-tripod and a 10-stop neutral density filter to help achieve the low angle and the 158 second exposure.

Long Exposure of Castle Hill Lighthouse

This is a two minute exposure of the Castle Hill Lighthouse at sunset.  Used a 10-stop neutral density filter and blended two exposures to achieve this effect. The lighthouse is located behind the Castle Hill Inn in Rhode island.

Castle Hill Lighthouse at Dusk

This is another sepia-toned version of the Castle Hill Lighthouse.  It’s a long exposure image taken at dusk, and I left the beacon at it’s natural red color.  

Sunset at Castle Hill Lighthouse

Took a one-night road trip to Rhode Island to try and attempt some sunset/sunrise images of two lighthouses there.  The weather ended up providing us with some decent clouds. This is the Castle Hill Lighthouse located behind the Castle Hill Inn in Rhode Island.  The image is a long exposure processed in sepia tones.

Alien Landscape at Point Judith

Something about this image made me think it looked like an alien landscape.  Post-processed the sky separately from the foreground before bringing them both together again.  Its a 20 second exposure at 3200 ISO. Point Judith Lighthouse can be seen on the horizon.

Point Judith Lighthouse and Milky Way

This is a panorama attempt at capturing the Milky Way over the Point Judith Lighthouse.  Found out later in post-processing, that the 14 mm lens introduced too much distortion to easily stitch the panorama together.  And I could never quite straighten out the horizon to my liking.  I should have remembered that i ran into

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

DPReview – Best Photo of the Week Challenge

Entered this image of the Beavertail Lighthouse into the “Best Photo of the Week” Challenge on DPReview.  This 111 second exposure was taken during some rainy weather with a 10-stop filter.  Sepia tones added in post. The challenge can be found here.

Montauk Lighthouse and the Milky Way

This is a second version of the Montauk Lighthouse and the Milky Way from a last minute night shoot at Montauk Point.  A shooting star (and possibly a 2nd, smaller one, next to it) is seen above. Used my 24-70mm at 24mm.  It seems my 24-70 lens is sharper in the corners at 2.8 than

Milky Way over Montauk Lighthouse

With clear skies in the forecast and the moon setting early, we made a last minute decision to take a quick trip to Montauk Lighthouse to try to grab some Milky Way images.   Tried to do some Milky way images a few weeks ago in Asbury Park, but the light pollution was way too

Barnegat Lighthouse at Night

The full moon and some fast moving clouds provided us a nicely lit backdrop to the Barnegat Lighthouse in NJ.  Even though we missed the golden hour, we decided to do a quick night shot at the lighthouse anyway just to see how the area looks.  The night sky ended up looking very colorful.  The

Montauk Lighthouse Sunrise

Took this image of the Montauk Lighthouse meeting the sunrise at Montauk Point in Long Island.  The cloudless sky did not make for a very impressive sunrise display.

Montauk Lighthouse Pre-Dawn

A pre-sunrise image of the Montauk Lighthouse in Montauk Point on a cold, cloudless morning.  This is a 25 second exposure taken from down at the waterline.
