    My First Timelapse Film- White Mountain National Forest

    Well, it took forever to finish, but here is my first timelapse film, focusing on the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire (and a tiny bit of Maine). I had no idea how much work this project would be, but it was an amazing experience and I learned a ton. The timelapse/video side of...

    Glow- Amazing Fall color in New Hampshire this year

    Well, the foliage has been absolutely insane this year. Peak color has only lasted a few days, and is already starting to fade in some places (plus leaf drop from all the wind/rain), but I managed to hit a few locations I had in mind. This was from a trip to a set of ledges high above...

    Pic heavy, very successful trip to Acadia NP

    Spent a week up in Acadia National Park earlier this month, part of which was spent co-hosting an astrophotography workshop. Because we had to rent the houses for the whole week (workshop was 4 days/3 nights), I went up early and got some shooting in for myself before I had to focus on our...

    "Serenity" Cape Cod Milky Way Pano

    Friday night I made the 3 1/2 hour drive to Nauset Beach in Cape Cod to celebrate International Dark Sky Week. While much of Cape Cod has a significant amount of light pollution, many of the beaches along the eastern shore of the Cape have some pretty dark skies. After walking a few miles down...

    The waves after Jonas

    Big thanks to @MSnowy for giving me some tips on where to shoot this lighthouse from! I asked him like a year ago but have been waiting for the right conditions ever since. Lots of haze and sea spray to shoot through (thank you dehaze slider!), but holy hell, what an amazing display of nature...

    Burrowing Owls

    Went down to Florida to visit my girlfriend's dad, so of course I made some plans to sneak away to shoot. Marco Island was only half an hour from his house, and once I heard there were lots of Burrowing Owls around, I drove over there to look around before the Boston snow even melted off my...

    My favorite images of 2015

    Man, what a year! Lots of great photo trips and memories. In no particular order.... 1. A cold morning in January spent photographing this Snowy Owl in Rye Harbor, NH. Probably the best conditions I had all year with these incredible birds 2. The solar storm of June 22/23, what a night...

    Winter is coming to the White Mountains

    Took a drive up to northern New Hampshire yesterday afternoon with no real destination in mind, just hoping to find something worth shooting (this rarely works out, but it's not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon). As we approached the Presidential Range, I saw the fog and clouds lifting with...

    Some recent work + Timelapse

    Been crazy busy the last few weeks, the fall foliage was very late this year, and is finally looking good at least in northern New England. I recently picked up a Syrp Genie and slider, for doing motion controlled timelapse, so I've been focusing on doing that stuff. Here's a recent timelapse...

    Nikon D7200, like new-sold locally

    Well, as much as I like this camera, I'm looking to sell my d7200. I picked this up in late May to use as my primary wildlife body, but I just barely ever use it, and I'd rather use the money for landscape gear. I'll have to check the shutter count later, but it can't be more than a few...

    Adirondack Milky Way and Perseid Meteor Shower

    So last night (the last few actually) was amazing. This spot in upstate NY has been on my to-do list for over a year now, and last night we made the 4 hour/4 mile hike up to Indian Head. PhotoPills is the best $10 I've ever spent as a landscape photographer, being able to plan out (like 5 months...

    Crown's Tide

    Just got home from a 10 day trip up to Hermit Island, Maine, camping with the fam and shooting as much as possible. We had some great weather, I found some new spots to shoot, saw some wildlife- definitely a fun trip. I've been camping at this place for the last 20 years or so, so it can be...

    New Nikon Lenses, including a 200-500!

    Nikon Lenses Leaked 24-70mm f 2.8 VR 24mm f 1.8 and 200-500mm f 5.6 VR The 24mm 1.8 is definitely interesting, but what really gets my attention is the 200-500 f5.6. I REALLY hope that's a constant aperture of 5.6, if this thing gets good reviews I will be dropping the Tamron and picking one up

    Moody Blues- Layers of Fog

    I LOVE scenes like this, and have been waiting for months for the right conditions to line up. After the rain cleared last night just before sunset, I raced to a spot near my apartment that has full 360 degree views. This image was around 20 minutes after sunset during blue hour, taken with my...

    Shameless self promotion- Weather Channel photo contest

    More Aurora...

    Another showing of the Northern Lights here in New England last night, albeit a brief one. Peak color and activity only lasted maybe 20-30 minutes, but it flared up more than I had expected. I tried out Lightroom's new photomerge feature for this, did a pretty good job. 6 vertical frames at...

    My Barred Owl Buddy is Back :)

    This is just copy+pasted from my Facebook post, so some of the stuff might not be as relevant here, but bear with me...I'm in a rush to head back out and try to get some more photos of these owls This photo is an example of how important networking can be in photography. Some of you who have...

    My first Aurora photo I'd offer prints of...psyched!

    what an absolutely amazing night....still can't believe I took this in central New Hampshire. I cropped this to 2x1 because I thought it looked nice as a pano, but it's really just 2 shots. 1 for the sky at ISO2500, f4, 15 seconds, and a foreground exposure at iso1600, f4, 3 minutes. This was a...

    Sometimes you just gotta get your feet wet- Aurora Borealis

    Taken around 2am early Monday morning. We were in and out of clouds all night, but during those breaks....oh man. I've photographed the aurora a handful of times in New England now, but never this strong. It hit Kp8 for a while and you could clearly see pulsing green waves in the sky, something...

    Room With a View

    A shot I've had in mind for the last year or so, finally able to capture it last Friday night while Camping in Maine. Multiple focus points all at iso6400, f2.8, 25 seconds. I've seen a lot of tent shots, but never one like this
