NOT Just Another Starry Night. . .

The Loner at Night
My friend Felice Boucher and I went out to Scarborough Marsh together last night to photograph the stars, and I was thrilled to be able to capture my favorite lone tree with a majestic starry background.  It was so beautiful out there last night.  There were crickets chirping, the sound of the water currents in the marsh beside us, and the carpet of stars above us.  We ended up staying for almost THREE HOURS we were having so much fun!  I'm tired today, but it was well worth it. 
Bridge to the Stars
The above shot was actually taken before the tree shot, when we were walking out the path towards the tree.  I like the leading lines of the bridge and the sort of sun-settish light on the horizon.  This is actually the light of either Portland or Scarborough, not sunset light, as this was taken at 9:45 at least.  Cool nonetheless!

You can see these two shots and a bunch of others in my Scarborough Marsh Gallery.

Starry Night

Stars over Portland Head Light, Saturday 6/09/12
A vertical shot of the stars over Portland Head Light
A recent morning test of my new ND10 filter at Portland Head Light.  I like how it drags the clouds out and smooths the waves into silkiness because of the long exposure.
Thanks go to the Cape Elizabeth Police Department who so very kindly let me in the main gates of Fort Williams Park on Saturday night this past weekend to do some star photography over my favorite light house.  Jon went with me, so I didn't have to worry about being alone out there, and the stars were just magnificent. 

You can see all of these photos and more in my new Portland Head Light Gallery.


welcome to my world!
