Frozen - A view from Dracut this evening over a bench. A nice small body of water located in the center of town called Lake Mascuppic. I came to this exact spot yesterday to achieve this although with the overcast sky and dullness I ended up selecting the red wheel photo.

On the way to the ferry, I happened to notice the windows were frosted on a business that was closed for the winter. What a treat it was to have nature's artwork to photograph!

TUNDRA at Town Beach 655 am 1-23-2014

Via Flickr:

A Morning Sunrise from The "Tundra" at Town Beach - West Island, Thursday, January 23, 2014. The temperature at 7:18 AM was 9.5 degrees with a wind chill of -4.28 degrees below zero. The wind was out of the NW at 10 with a gust to 20MPH. The dew point is extremely dry at -2 below zero. The upper level clouds are mostly high cirrus made up of ice crystals. Icing has begun building up along the shoreline - although they say salt water freezes at 28, it's actually 17 degrees. More storm action on the horizon - this winter isn't even half way through and neither is the brutal cold air mass that won't give us any significant break. We are actually colder than Alaska right now. Photo from WIWS Axis Cam at South Point 655AM 1-23-2014.

The Morning After A Nor'easter.

Via Flickr:
The Millicent Library is framed by the entrance arch to the Fairhaven Town Hall at 9AM, Wednesday, January 22, 2014.The area was fully prepared as a second nor'easter of the year impacted the region dumping 8" of snow in Fairhaven and 9.5" in Acushnet, Wednesday. Local schools were closed and some businesses had delayed openings. The area faired well with the light textured snow and it was easy to shovel and plow. Most of the roadways were cleared by daybreak with a few minor accidents reported. A wind gust of 33 MPH was recorded at The West Island Weather Station while areas further down the Cape experienced gusts to 50+ MPH with significantly more snow of 15 inches or more. The storm headed out to sea later in the morning. The cold arctic air left in place is expected to last into the weekend with yet another potential snow event being discussed for Monday.

Nubble Lighthouse - Crashing waves into the rocks at Cape Neddick in Maine...I for whatever reason have been obsessed with going there to get a few shots before I did. This photo isn't really the photo I was going for as my day picture but I chose it because it's a lot more dramatic than the other. Not to mention today was a bad day to go because it was raining and such but this scene here represents the a classic east coast scene in my opinion...

Mid Winter Sunset Over River

Via Flickr:
It was very cold right after a storm and the sunset sky was streaked and actually looked like this. This was taken a minute or two after the following Flickr picture taken over the marsh and is processed to be more serene and show off the sunset colors.

~Moonkissed~ After we had a lot of freezing rain here in Maine, Moe Chen Photography and I headed to the Saco Heath to search for some cool ice covered trees to shoot for sunrise. When we arrived we found out that not only was our part of the state spared the majority of the freezing rain that had SLAMMED the rest of the state, but it was pretty cloudy and sunrise was looking grim. Luckily the moon was out and bright. I used the moon to silhouette this tree and emphasize the ice on the branches. I would appreciate it if you shared this.

Mother Nature Working OT - Tonight's display was outstanding...and I was so happy with the outcome. I actually had time to stop and actually watch the sunset instead of spending all my time capturing it. The sky kept changing color and got more and more brilliant orange as the sun went into the horizon. I was searching in Windham for a spot and knew that I wanted Cobbetts Pond...and I found the perfect location as I wasn't really expecting the sunset to be quite like this. Maybe tonight's sunset was just for me so I could get a day pic? I don't think so but I'll pretend it was.

Boston Skyline during Blue Hour from Carlton Wharf East Boston, 2 Minute Exposure

Via Flickr:
Another shot from yesterday with my friends from Paris. I actually shot an HDR, but it looked way to artificial and I prefer this clean 120 second exposure.

Daytime Long Exposure of Boston Skyline from Carlton's Wharf, East Boston

Via Flickr:
50-second exposure taken before noon from the remnants of Carlton's Wharf in East Boston. Found this really cool bolt that was worn down to the tip from the sea, which I thought complemented the dilapidated pylons.

Boston Skyline from Lo Presti Park Pier, East Boston Early Morning ND Long Exposure

Via Flickr:
Did another Carlton's Wharf session the other morning. I arrived at 4:45 AM and got a bunch of shots through sunrise. When I was driving away I saw that the sun finally popped over the horizon and was hitting the buildings with a great warm light. I turned around and went back, figured I would get a clean ND shot off of the pier at Lo Presti park as a bonus.

Boston Skyline over the Harbor at Sunset, Carlton Wharf East Boston

Three shot HDR taken with a B+W 3.0ND 110 filter. I took these long exposures with a high ISO and found that it really brought out the warm cast of the filter and enhanced the sunset.

Mid Winter Sunset Over the Marsh

It was very cold right after a storm and the sunset sky was streaked and actually looked like this. Taken just before the previous Flickr picture taken over a river this one is processed to highlight the sky and clouds.

Can't get enough of this spot. The brief lighting hitting the tops of the leading line of dilapidated pilings to the left made this one for me.

Before sunrise on this frigid morning in New Castle, New Hampshire, the ocean, covered in sea smoke turned a beautiful shade of purple. The way the light changed over the next hour was one of the most beautiful things I've seen in the natural world!
