Illusory Looking Glass
Illusory = based on illusion; not real
Looking Glass = mirror
This panorama of the full arc of the Milky Way and the moon rising was captured at Loon Island Lighthouse in NH. The "clouds" emanating from the center were added in post and the image was flipped to create the mirror effect. This image is one of our best selling prints and looks incredible on metal at almost 5 feet wide.
Full Moon at Whaleback Lighthouse
Photographed from New Hampshire, Whaleback Light is 59 feet tall and approximately 1 mile from this vantage point. Taken in November 2016.
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.
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.

Milky Way at Pemaquid Point Light
The Summer Milky Way moves through the sky behind Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. Photographed in June 2015, this is one frame from a time lapse.
Red Light District
The Milky Way stretches across the sky next to Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Acadia National Park. Photographing our night sky at any lighthouse is difficult. This spot is especially demanding due to the intense red light coming from the tower’s fourth order Fresnel lens - this image required determination & some fancy footwork in post-processing. This is a 5 image vertical panorama taken in August 2015.
Nikon D600 & 14-24mm @ 14mm
