I post photographs here from time to time for those who are interested in a bit of the story and the locations behind the pictures.

I shoot most of the photographs on on Martha's Vineyard.

Edgartown Light Christmas Moon

1.3 second at f/4.8

This photo got a lot of very nice compliments, but it wasn't the shot I planned. Everything was falling into place, the full moon rising over the ocean big as life, still some sunlight left, but... but... but... the Christmas lights wouldn't come on. They were set to a timer, and by the time they came on, there was very little daylight left, and the moon was pretty high in the sky. Still it might be a Christmas card by next year.

Edgartown Light Fireworks

1.3 seconds at f/8

Fireworks over Edgartown Light to ring in the New Year. I love to shoot fireworks, even on a really cold night like this. But I'm rarely happy with the results. If I timed this so my shutter was open just another 1/3 second, it might have been spectacular with the small burst just over the light. Oh well, there's always next New Year's.

God Rays in Aquinnah

1/500 second at f/6.3
For some reason, I see this phenomenon a lot in Aquinnah. This is off Philbin Beach. My friend Chris calls this God rays, but my friend Janet said she has always heard it described as an angel sky. I like the black and white treatment, but there's a color shot, with a little different take, below. 

Lucy Vincent Abstract

1/3 second at f/32

Spent a wonderful morning on Lucy Vincent Beach recently. I had very little sleep, but there was not time to get tired because every time I turned around, there was something else to shoot. This is an abstract made by panning the camera fast past the very tip of the rising sun. The movement of the camera blends and smooths the colors. Two more shots below.
