October 2015 - Lewes, DE This was a difficult photograph to capture due to the heavy wind and the blowing sand. I used my 400mm lens on a tripod. I had the tripod legs folded almost the whole way in to allow me to be as close to the ground as possible so that the wind would have less effect on my image.

At the Top

I took this photograph in the early morning of July 9th, 2015. This is the top of the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse in Lewes, DE. Note that this was taken from my boat as we were rocking in the waves.

July Morning

Taken on the same morning as "At the Top". We are fortunate to have two lighthouses in the Lewes, DE Harbor. This was is known as the East End Light and it's located on the inner breakwall.

Reedy Island Rear Range Lighthouse

During my drive to and from my photo shoot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, I took Rt#9 which provides a scenic view. That journey took me past this strange lighthouse that, until I did some research, I knew nothing about. It caught my eye and I just had to pull over for a photograph. The lighthouse is 125' tall with a spiral stairway to access the top. On July 27, 1910 the lamp was lit for the first time. Located in Taylor's Bridge.

Panmure Island Lighthouse

Built in 1853, it is the oldest wooden and the first octagonal lighthouse built on PEI. It's purpose has been to guide vessels into the Cardigan Bay for over for over 165 years.

North Rustico Lighthouse

A truly unique little lighthouse in a truly unique little village of Prince Edward Island. I was very happy to come across this gem as we were driving around the island during a road trip in September of 2019.


Taken in the early morning hours this morning on the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park. That is the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse in the background.

The Inlet of Duluth

Taken as the sun was going down in Duluth, MI on Sept 2, 2016.

Grand Isle East Channel Lighthouse

Supposedly one of Michigan's most recognized landmarks. It definitely attracted my attention.

Light Beams of Tybee Island

This photograph was one that I was anxious to download from my camera. I took in in March of our 2019 road trip. It was a 30 second exposure of the Tybee Island Lighthouse on a misty and foggy night. I was captivated by the light beams being cast from the lighthouse due to all the moisture in the air. We truly enjoyed Tybee Island and we'll definitely be stopping here again in the future.

Ocracoke Lighthouse

When I take a photograph I try and find that perspective that is different from the norm. Especially with a subject that is photographed by most everyone that walks by. The Ocracoke Lighthouse makes that a difficult task because of the limited areas in which you can approach and the private property that covers most of the area. So, here is that look that is taken day in and day out almost everyday of the year. I still wanted to share this because I just love this little white lighthouse.

A True Gem

The last time that I was in the Outer Banks the Bodie Island Lighthouse was under renovation and was covered in scaffolding. It was a pleasure to see it again, fully refurbished and ready for me to take a photograph. This lighthouse was put into operation in 1872 and is still operating today. A true gem and a must see if you are traveling in the area.

Victoria, PEI Lighthouse

Victoria is one of our favorite little towns of Prince Edward Island. They have a wonderful chocolatier who makes a chocolate coffee that is simply amazing. They also have two Range Lights to help with the navigation of the boats at sea. This one is located right in town.

Victoria Rear Range Light

This little gem sits back a rough dirt road that is tree lined. I could see it as we were passing by and just had to drive back to see it up close.

West Point Lighthouse

Ahhh, what a lovely PEI lighthouse. We climbed it with our little dog and she made it all the way to the top. I really like the black & white stripes but, as you can see, they don't go all the way around the structure. The living quarters of the lighthouse are now an Inn and it's available for your stay.

Eagle Harbor Lighthouse

This photograph was taken on Sept 8, 2016 during a 5 week road trip through the UP of Michigan.

Railroad Bell of St Ignace

Taken along the waterfront of St. Ignace on a rainy September. That is the Wawatam Lighthouse in the background.

Wawatam Lighthouse

St Ignace, MI. Built in 1998 for a Michigan Welcome Center travel icon in Monroe, MI. In 2004 the lighthouse was dismantled into five pieces and moved to Chief Wawatam Dock in St Ignace. Today it is used in the winter to guide snowmobiles on Lake Huron.

Crooked Structures of North Rustico

This is a good example of numerous areas of Prince Edward Island with the old structures that are leaning this way and that. Some in disrepair while others, though old and have peeling paint, are still in very good shape. It's a charm that must be seen to truly be appreciated. We loved our time on the island and look forward to getting back again at some point.

Nubble Light

Cape Neddick Lighthouse. Located in York, Maine it is one of my favorite lighthouses. I took this photograph on our fall road trip in 2017. I was excited to get the opportunity to photograph this scene and I was looking for a lovely golden sky as the sun was setting behind me but I ended up with a very overcast day with light rain and a heavy wind. Maybe next time.
