On my recent trip to Maine in early March, I had a made an attempt at getting photos of the Portland Head Light at night. Unfortunately, the clouds did not co-operate as they covered the lower sky. I took a chance and got right underneath the lighthouse and shot straight up. The upper sky was clear and I was able… Continue readingEarly Morning Light

As spring is approaching and the weather is getting warmer it is a great time to be outside. I took my DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone out on the south shore of Long Island to a spot just east of the Great South Bay Bridge. I was trying out a new pair of parabolic reflectors on the antennas of the… Continue readingRobert Moses Causeway

The Captree bridge is the gateway to the Fire Island National Seashore. Boasting miles of sandy beaches, lazy villages where cars are not allowed, and the Fire Island Light house, the seashore has it all. It’s all just a bridge away… This photo was shot with the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone. The Phantom 3 is an incredible stable drone… Continue readingCaptree

While setting up a cityscape of the midtown NY city skyline these happy rowers were passing by. I took a few shots of them and was lucky enough to have one or two usable photos with the rowers in front of the skyline. Click on the photo to see it full screen.

I recently returned from taking a few pictures on the road and enjoying the scenery in Lubec, Maine. Lubec is the eastern most point in the United States and is home to the West Quoddy Head Light. How it got the name West Quoddy when it is the eastern most point of the US is still a bit of a… Continue readingLubec

I just finished up post processing this photo from a sunset shoot I did of the mid-town skyline. This shot was taken from Gantry Plaza State Park, just past the mid-town tunnel. It’s a beautiful park filled with friendly people a lots of cameras. This shot was taken just after the sun set behind the skyscrapers of New York City.… Continue readingMidtown Sunset

There are few places in the world more beautiful and tranquil than Sedona, Arizona. Surrounded on all sides by massive red rock formations the views are nothing short of spectacular. There are also dark sky laws in effect to make this area a paradise for night and star photography. Unfortunately, the nearly full moon was obscuring the views in the… Continue readingSedona Skies

The Custer Institute and Observatory located on Long Island’s north fork, in the town of Southold is Long Island’s oldest public observatory. The Observatory was established in 1927 and is currently run by a staff of dedicated volunteers.

Inside the dome is a 25 inch, f/5 Obsession Newtonian-style reflecting telescope standing 11 feet tall. Outside are several smaller domes that the staff will assist you with as you try to see all that the heavens have to offer.

Currently the observatory is open on Saturday nights. The institute is run completely on donations and a $5 donation gets you a look at the stars from inside the big dome.
