Happy 4th-1

Happy 4th America

Here is my effort to celebrate the 4th from Bar Harbor, Maine.  The shot was taken from the dock, and the flag is on a lobster boat that was preparing to go out to sea at sunrise last August. Like this:Like Loading…

Ram Island Sunrise

Ram Island Ledge Light

I went to Cape Elizabeth to photograph the Portland Head Light earlier this summer, but I ended up with some great shots of the Ram Island Ledge Light instead.  This lighthouse is a few hundred feet away from the Portland Head Light.  You can see it in the background of photographs of the Portland Head…

Portland Head Light

I have visited the Portland Head Light two or three times this summer.  It is allegedly the most photographed lighthouse in the United States.  These images come from a sunset shoot in June.  I tried some with the Big Stopper by LEE Filters, which you can see below.  For once, I prefer the image without…

Fort Pickering Light

    I visited Fort Pickering Light in Salem, Massachusetts, earlier this summer.  The sunrise peaked right as I was allowed in Winter Island Park, where the lighthouse is located.  I scrambled to get the image below quickly, as the spectacular sky was fading by the second.  I took several more images of the lighthouse…

Old Scituate Light

The next image in my lighthouse series comes from Massachusetts. The best thing about Old Scituate Light is the amount of angles you can approach it from. You can shoot from one of the two jetties or the beach, but I decided to shoot from below the lighthouse with he rocks as the only foreground…

Whaleback Light

My second lighthouse effort comes from Maine, though the picture was taken from Portsmouth Harbor in New Hampshire. Whaleback lighthouse was constructed in 1830, and has been automated since the 1960s. I took this image after the sun had descended. The exposure took several minutes, and I had to remove some lens flare in Photoshop.…

Nubble Light

I have been shooting a lot of lighthouses in Maine and Massachusetts lately, and I am big fan of the Cape Neddick Lighthouse in Ogunquit, also known as Nubble Light. I have been to this location three times, and I really like the images that I created using the neutral density filters from LEE. I…
