First things first—I’m not in love with this shot. I’m not even sure I like it. I made my way to Great Bay Boulevard with a specific location and an already framed shot in mind. You see, I had already conceived a shot on my during my last trip to Great Bay Boulevard; only I […]
The Winter of the Great Sunset™ continues. Snow and cold be damned, the sky has been putting on a show this season. Seriously, though? Who am I kidding? I love the snow. Anyway… I returned to my tried and true Dock Road location to take advantage of the sun’s angle in the southwestern sky. While […]
Since I was already down in Little Egg Harbor visiting with friends today, Great Bay Boulevard always hung in the back of my mind as the likely landing spot for tonight’s obligatory sunset chasing. I say obligatory if only because a) it’s a Saturday in winter—rending me home from work—and b) the setup looked favorable […]

Two weeks ago, while exploring the trail at the Ballanger Creek Habitat Enhancement Site with friends, the unsullied trail was coming alive with […]
Taken back in late June 2013, thunderstorms rolled across the coastal plain that flank Dock Road on its north and south side. The light play interacting with heavy rainfall underneath the granite etched clouds had my heart running with excitement. I knew I was coming home with something good.
A cool November sky is set ablaze behind Antoinetta’s Restaurant on Cedar Run Dock Road in Manahawkin, NJ. Long has Dock Road been a treaded stomping grounds—long before the days I ever had designs on photography. Now I get to explore this wonderful vista in exciting new ways behind the lens.
