Two exposures were blended for this image that was captured in Maine during the September 2015 "Super Blood Moon Eclipse."
Shadow Rays at Marshall Point
Marshall Point lighthouse is one of our favorite spots to shoot at night. In this image the ‘wagon wheel’ effect from the astragals in the tower's cap design adds to the otherworldly feel.
Somniloquy is the term that describes the act of talking while asleep. All of the images in our Somniloquy series have to do with exposure blends and creativity: day shots for the foreground and night shots for the sky, processed and blended via Lightroom & Photoshop CC with a dream state in mind.
R I T U A L
Some planning and luck came together for this single exposure taken at the Pemigewasset Overlook on the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains. We had a good time setting up lots of tealights as the Milky Way moved into position above the gazebo.

Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride
Driving into Monument Valley on Rt 163 in Utah - this is an exposure blend of 9 shots for the sky and 1 shot for the foreground.

A quick trip down to Lookout Point in Harpswell, Maine tonight turned into a time lapse and a great excuse to drink a few beers as the camera clicked away.
An abandoned ship under the night sky in Maine. Single exposure. Good leading lines. A great find.
Single exposure capturing the night sky and traffic crossing the Deer Isle-Sedgwick bridge in Maine.
The Wagon Wheel
Marshall Point lighthouse is one of our favorite spots to shoot at night. In this image the ‘wagon wheel’ effect from the astragals in the tower's cap design adds to the otherworldly feel as the photogenic core section of the Milky Way stretches through the scene. Comet 252P/LINEAR can also be seen as a green spot above and slightly to the left of the galactic core.

Night Reflections at Jordan Pond - Vertical Crop
Clouds roll through the Northern sky and reflect in the calm water of Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park. This is one frame from a time lapse that will be featured in my upcoming short film Shot In The Dark.
