Fort Revere Hull MA

"The Forts" in Hull Ma are located on Telegraph Hill at Fort Revere Park. One is from the American Revolution, and one that served from 1898-1947. I went here a few weeks ago on Friday the 13th, which was also the night of the full moon,

A long exposure shot........Is that a ghost traveling through the scene?

Another Summer Coming To An End

We've had some ridiculously beautiful Fall like weather here in New England over the past few weeks. There's been a definite Fall feel to the crisp mornings and glorious sunny days with no humidity. There's also been some days with Summer like temps mixed for example is like that....but all in all it's felt more Fall like than Summer. Which brings us to tomorrow as being the first official day of Fall!

Bye bye Summer....

I went to CC Reading Farmstand in West Bridgewater MA with my girlfriends on Friday. The tomatoes are still awesome there and my friend said it was the best corn on the cob of the Summer. But like all of the other farm stands in the area, things are transitioning over to being more Fall like with pumpkin displays, hay bales, gords etc.

And the end of the Summer flowers....

I have my Fall mojo going on and am happily anticipating my upcoming trip to Vermont to once again photograph my favorite subject in my favorite place. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Scituate MA with Hurricane Dorian way off the coast

With hurricane Dorian far off the coast of New England, I figured we would still have some sizable swells and waves coming on shore, so I headed to Scituate last evening to photograph high tide.

Scituate Lighthouse:

The waves were crashing along the breaker across the water from the lighthouse. That's where I was photographing from, and by using a long lens, it almost appears that the waves were breaking against the lighthouse due to compression from the long lens.

Things were much calmer on the bay side:

Last night's moon:

It was a gorgeous evening to be out along the shore, and I'm very thankful that New England didn't get a direct hit by this destructive storm. Prayers for all of those affected.
