Portland Head Light Sepia

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Montauk Lighthouse and Venus in Pre-Dawn Sky

Arrived about an hour before sunrise at Montauk Point in Long Island and was able to capture this image of Venus rising above the lighthouse.  Quite a few stars were still visible in the blue hour sky.

Portland Head Sunrise

Went on a quick one-day trip to Portland during a break in some recent snow storms, and grabbed this image of a sunrise at the Portland Head Light in Portland, ME.

Frozen Marshland

Saw this scene along the roadside while driving through Massachusetts during the holidays.  The image was taken just after sunrise with some HDR effects added in post processing.
