This seemed like a good one to end the week on. In late January, I headed to Devereux Beach to capture kite surfers catching air and flying through the air. Between those shots, I turned my long lens towards the ocean and tried to capture images of the waves as they first formed far from land. This is one such portrait of a wave.
Today's photo was captured 25 minutes after yesterday's on that mild mid-March evening in 2016. We had just come off a 60 degree day when I went out to shoot the sunset and here we are facing the prospect of a fourth Nor'Easter and more snow. Spring is coming...right?
Two years ago yesterday, I headed across the causeway to Marblehead Neck on a mild mid-March evening and captured an incredibly long sunset. I haven't had the chance to share many images from that evening so I thought I would try to do that this week beginning with this start of a March sunset. The clarity across the water was incredible at 6:00pm when I started shooting.
There have been snowy owl sightings in Marblehead for the past few winters but I had never had the good fortune to see (let alone try to photograph) one. Though I have never been drawn to the niche of bird photography, there is something about the snowy owl that makes them an incredible sight to behold. When I heard that one had been spotted in Marblehead in early January during that arctic cold blast, I decided to try to spot it. I ended up lucking out on my third outing when this owl perched on a familiar picnic bench near [...]
I have decided to take a bit of a break from all social media and focus on looking for new images and compositions in a more slowed and deliberate fashion. If you need to reach me, email works best - [email protected] I will continue to fill print orders from the website. In the meantime, I have a plugin that can share old posts at random so don't be surprised to see images from as far back as 2008 or as recently as last week showing up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google Plus... I won't be commenting on those posts apart [...]
Only 19 calendars are left. I have my calendars made at a quality printer so that they have all the characteristics of store bought ones - saddle stitching, thick paper, protective sleeve. But that means I need to order them in advance. This year I ran out of the first batch before Black Friday and ordered a second print run. With the holidays quickly approaching, I am down to 19 calendars as of November 29 at 7:45am. Last year I had some disappointed emails from folks who missed out on the calendars. This is the last chance to get a [...]
Each year on Thanksgiving, I like to look back and give thanks for the support of those who see and interact with my images on my website and various social media locations. I started Wednesdays in Marblehead in August 2010 as a personal project to learn more about my new town. I still remember those early days when I would post an image to the website and wonder if anyone would ever see it. After seven years and over 1,800 images shared, I’m humbled that so many have connected with these photos of Marblehead and the beauty to be [...]

This year's calendar marks my seventh annual Marblehead calendar and may just be my favorite one yet. I set about choosing images last month and then got to work on the final selections, re-processing for the press and the monthly grids. Finally, I had a calendar ready to go but the August image wasn't a favorite. Luckily, it was now August and so I took a chance on a sunset one night and came away with a new favorite image of Marblehead Harbor from 400 feet up in the air. My print order arrived last night and I tore into [...]
