New Years Starts with a Storm

Just three days into 2014 and Marblehead got walloped with almost two feet of snow to go along with truly arctic conditions.  Once the snow died down on Friday, I decided to head out and try to capture the storm during the noon high tide.

I started off on Ocean Avenue intending to shoot the causeway up close but found 12″ of ocean water in the middle of the street and no way to safely cross it.  I decided to go with plan B which was climbing to the rocks at Goldthwait beach.  While the walk wasn’t terrible (though I’m […]

Top 13 of 2013 – Best Images of the Year

As we near the end of the year, I decided to look back and try to choose my favorite 13 images of 2013.  I reviewed all 257 images taken in the past year and was able to narrow down to 35 photos that stood out from the rest – whether due to composition, light or the backstory of how the image came to be.  I then turned to my Facebook page for help in narrowing down to a final 13.  While the choices made by the public were both interesting and helpful in making my final choices, in the […]

Lights and Shadows on the Causeway

Fog Week continues on Wednesdays in Marblehead with this – the first image taken on a recent night of dense fog in Marblehead.  As soon as the fog rolled in, I knew I had to head to the causeway.  I had previously photographed a great foggy night on the causeway where I was lucky enough to capture people walking along the causeway.  I realized I had never captured the causeway from the Marblehead Neck side though and sought to rectify that on this night.

I started at the end of the causeway but wasn’t thrilled with the far spacing from […]

With Black Friday and Small Business Saturday nearly upon us, I wanted to extend my thanks to everyone who has been following, participating and purchasing images from my site with a sale on prints, calendars and cards.  This is the only planned sale of the year (I typically will offer 24-hour sales on my Facebook page whenever my print lab makes those available).  If you have been waiting to buy a card, calendar or prints, now is the time to do so.  The sale covers all items on the website with the deduction applied at checkout.
From today through the […]

Sunset over Marblehead Harbor – A Panorama

I’m catching up on photos on this grey, rainy Sunday and found a set of 15 vertical images I took immediately before the Harvest Moon rose on September 19th.  Here is the stitched panorama which weighs in at 116 Megapixels.

A Bad Week for Printing But Not a Bad Week for my Clients

I’m going to diverge a bit from the usual image posts today to share some frustrations with you.  For those who only see my posts on Twitter or Facebook or those who haven’t visited my updated website, you may not be aware that all images are made available for purchase as prints.  I offer standard matted and/or framed works as well as prints on canvas or metal.  Each print is made by a professional lab and carries a 100% satisfaction guarantee.   Well, make that 110%…

You see, every image is carefully inspected by me before it ever makes it […]

Marblehead at the End of the Rainbow

Anyone remember that incredible rainbow that shone on June 17th?  If not, click here to see the full double rainbow over Ram’s island LINK.

After capturing the full rainbow, I recomposed looking for other unique scenes with the bright rainbow only partially in the frame.  This image of the house at the end of a cliff with the brightest part of the double rainbow caught my eye but has been waiting in the ‘to be posted’ queue for almost two months now.  Here it is now to mark the end of my third year posting photos on Wednesdays in Marblehead.

Come back […]

The Marker at Fifteen-Foot Rock

Another image from Wednesday’s impromptu outing to capture the action of  Marblehead Junior Race Week.  As we made our way around the race course, I spotted this marker in bright red and green and the intriguing letters FR.  We came around and I was just able to include the great clouds above and enough water below to offer a reflection.  I later found out the FR stands for Fifteen-Foot Rock.  Hopefully many of you will pass this marker this weekend as you head out to sea from Marblehead Harbor.

Over 700 Images of Marblehead Visualized

This past week, I crossed the 700 mark with this website.  Since starting in August 2010, I have shared over 700 images of Marblehead!  The ironic part is that I never thought I would post more than 50 images per year (figuring I would put up a photo every Wednesday).  I have discovered that this town is too photogenic and the scenes I capture so compelling, that I have ended up sharing 5-7 days per week.

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to create a mosaic using every image posted to the site.  The first one […]

Best of Show – Marblehead Festival of Arts 2013

I am thrilled and honored to announce that the jurors of the 2013 Marblehead Festival of Arts have chosen ‘In a Fog on Washington Street’ as Best of Show in photography (black and white).  This marks two consecutive years of winning Best of Show in the black and white division and I could not be more humbled that the jurors connected with this image.

I will be receiving the award on tonight outside Abbot and will be sitting at Khouri’s Oriental Rug & Carpeting (139 Atlantic Avenue) on Saturday from 4-5pm if you would like to stop by.  This image as well […]
