Norton Point Shack

Norton Point was closed to drive-on traffic this 4th of July due to the nesting of the Plovers so the usually busy guard shack was abandoned. This was taken with my iPhone 7 Plus which I find to be an outstanding point and shoot camera.  I did a little B&W editing on my phone so what you see is 100% produced on the iPhone.

Lower Manhattan

Spent a few hours at sunset New Year’s Day at Liberty State Park.  The night was perfect for this type of shot – low humidity and a clear sky.  Happy New Year! Canon 5DMKIII, EF24-70 f2.8 at f / 8.0 @ 32mm

Warwick Valley

I shot this from one of my favorite Warwick stops – Bellvale Farms Creamery.  Not only has Bellvale ice cream been voted one of the best in the country, they most certainly have one of the best views of any ice cream store in the country. Shot with my Canon 5DMKIII, EF24-70MM 2.8 at 70MM f11

NYC from Brooklyn Bridge Park

Recently I spent some time with David Ferguson (my father-in-law) shooting NYC from the Brooklyn Bridge Park.  David is an avid and talented outdoor photographer and had this shot on his bucket list so I tagged along and took a few images of my own. It’s amazing to me that Brooklyn has such a spectacular park and with such an incredible view of NYC.  This…

A Shiny Pebble

We are descendants of the creatures that picked the shiny pebbles from the river.  We love to touch, experience and be part of a community.  I love this example of a shiny pebble.  The owner of this small shop has created an icon that is experiential, differentiates and tells a story about what you are likely to encounter in the community that he has…

Light Houses of Martha’s Vineyard

One of my favorite experiences on Martha’s Vineyard is always a visit to the lighthouses of the island.  There is something magical and powerful about a lighthouse and their enduring strength that resists everything that Mother Nature throws at it in order to guide sailors safely home. These are two of my favorites.       The lighthouse at Gay Head is in danger…

Fortress wall of the Forbidden City

  A recent trip to Beijing resulted in a few hours to walk around the Forbidden City.  The smog was almost unbearable – I didn’t recover for weeks after returning to the US.  But, I did manage to capture a handful of images that I liked.  This one of the fortress wall around the Forbidden City is interesting.  I used Photoshop and Lightroom to…
