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:

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:    

George Washington Bridge

This is a 99 second exposure of the George Washington Bridge.  Taken just before sunrise from a park in Fort Lee, NJ.

Sunset in Manhattan Panorama

Another panorama attempt of the Manhattan skyline.  Three horizontal, long exposure images taken from the Manhattan Bridge during sunset.

Manhattan to Brooklyn Panorama

Panorama attempt of the Manhattan skyline taken from the Manhattan Bridge.  Three horizontal, long exposure images stitched together.      

Verrazano Sun Flare

HDR image of the sun setting behind the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, taken from the Brooklyn side.

Fiery Dawn in Manhattan

Early morning rain clouds allowed the sun to peek through at dawn.  Just in time to light up  the clouds behind Manhattan with a nice glow.

Evening Downtown

Used a 10-stop filter during sunset to grab this long exposure image of downtown Manhattan.  Process with sepia tones.

Rainy Morning in Manhattan

Woke up early for an attempt at a sunrise shot before open hockey at the Union Sports Arena.  Weather didn’t cooperate and failed to give me the clouds I wanted.  But it was eerily calm that morning and it set up a nice reflection on the Hudson for a long exposure:

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.

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.

Sunset at Montauk Point

Visited Montauk Point with my niece and nephew to try and get some sunset images of the lighthouse.  The clouds disappeared quickly and we really couldn’t line up the lighthouse with the sunset in a way I had hoped.  The only images I ended up with that I liked were a few coastline shots. Here’s

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

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. The rain was just starting to fall.

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.

Downtown Manhattan Pre-Sunrise

This is a view of downtown Manhattan, at about 20 minutes before sunrise, taken from across the Hudson River in Liberty State park, NJ.  The overcast clouds surprisingly took on a nice, purple-ish hue.  I used a 10-stop filter to extend the shutter speed to help smooth out the water and clouds.  This exposure ended

Empty Sky Memorial – Liberty State Park, NJ

As the sun set behind the Empty Sky Memorial, it created an amazing ring shaped reflection inside the granite pathway.  I used a 10-stop filter to try and lengthen the shutter speed, making the visitors appear ghostly in their movements.  If someone stood still, however, they would appear sharper in silhouette.
