Salt Pond is a saltwater pool located on Cape Cod, in Eastham, Massachusetts. During tourist season, this is a heavily-visited area, conveniently located near from the Salt Pond Visitor Center. But in spring and late autumn, you may have the place to yourself. The pond faces out to the open Atlantic Ocean and can be a wonderful location for both sunrise and sunset photography. A few days ago, I chose to explore it's potential for night photography. This image was made late evening on a moonless night as the Milky Way rose in the southeast. I was alone on the pond, except for the curious seal that came up for air near my position at the edge of the pond. Our encounter was startling and brief.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is located in Bristol, Maine. It was commissioned in 1827 by John Quincy Adams. It was featured on the Maine Quarter, part of the State Quarter Program issued by the U.S. Mint. Beautiful rock formations lie just below the lighthouse, which are frequently included in photographs of the lighthouse. This 84-minute star trail was made late evening, as the full moon lit the rocks and lighthouse structures. A sequence of 21 photos were taken at an exposure of 4 minutes each. The frames were then merged in post-processing to produce a star trail reflecting the earth's rotation.

Marginal Way is a scenic cliff-walk in Ogunquit, Maine. In the Abenaki vernacular, Ogunquit means "beautiful place by the sea". The coast with the granite cliffs still lives up to that title assigned long ago. Marginal Way faces east, making a perfect sunrise location. This new image was made from a small cove bordered by granite rocks.

The seacoast remains one of my favorite regions to photograph, while awaiting the arrival of leaves and blooms.

Thanks for looking!

While it is officially spring in New England, the foliage here is still drab for photography at this adolescent time of the season. As we await flowers and green leaves, this is a great time to photograph the seacoast. With Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island in easy reach, there's plenty of coastal photography to be had in these parts.

This image was made earlier this week on the Narragansett coast near Point Judith, Rhode Island. In April, the rising sun lines up perfectly in the center of the rocks in this little cove. And in early spring, the area also happens to be free of tourists.
