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…

This was my first time at the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, and I have to say, I really lucked out. I had a spot right across the river, with a great view of the skyline and the fireworks. I got drenched in the rain, and it took me two hours to get home, but it…

Halibut Point Rocks

Halibut Point State Park in Rockport Massachusetts is full of rocky shoreline for those who would rather take a day trip from Boston rather than travel all the way to Maine.  I always find it difficult to decide whether to use a long exposure to capture the landscape there, but on this occasion, I did not…

The Sky at Halibut Point

I don’t know if it is the proximity to The Lobster Pool, but I really enjoy shooting at Halibut Point State Park in Rockport Massachusetts.  It is a place where the Atlantic Ocean collides with old-money Massachusetts, producing a supernova of pastel polos, salmon shorts, and Sperrys.  Even so, the area has a really low-key tone.…
