    Out of Sight

    If you want to capitalize on opportunity you have got to be flexible. Sometimes a quick change in plans will lead you out to the salt marsh underneath a smoldering sunset sky.

  • When the Night is Over

    When the Night is Over

    The long night of no photography is over. Months a plenty have come to pass since my heart was in it. I have to say it felt good getting back there. Sometimes you need to prove to yourself you can still do a thing.

  • Can’t Fight the Light

    Can’t Fight the Light

    It seems everything is burning around us. Far too much desire to tear it all down and reign over the ashes. The dark side farce of humanities unpleasant underbelly seems to be boomeranging back once again. History is undefeated, yet the beautiful skies still burn above us indifferent to it all. Let’s rewrite our story and dare to be different, yeah?

  • The June Palette

    The June Palette

    Nothing beats the look when the salt marsh powers back up to full strength as it radiates a fresh green color like no other. It’s so fresh and full of life, it’s total rejuvenation right before the eyes. And the way it plays with the blues and pastels at sunset is unlike anything else. It’s a joy for any landscape photographer to behold and capture.

    Shaken

    New Jersey photographer Greg Molyneux shares his latest hospital scare the day after capturing a sunset out on Cedar Run Dock Road salt marsh. Heart issues continue to weigh heavily on his mind, and has him shaken to the core. Stay healthy out there, and take care of yourselves, my friends.

    Sometimes all you need as an evening jog, some Star Wars audiobooks, chicken tenders, and some attention grabbing clouds and then, boom, a 14mm sunset photograph over Cedar Run Dock Road salt marsh in mid May happens. The sky lit up in pink pastel tones as storm clouds roll across the marsh from the western horizon.

  • Past Glory

    Past Glory

    Digging into the past. Scratching away at that pleasurable itch of nostalgia. I assume this is a feeling that comes welcomed by us all, though I admit my own Peter Pan bias may be coloring my protracted adolescent glasses a bit here. Regardless, I’m glad to revisit this fiery sunset from November 2021, which I decided to hold out on for some reason. Now if you will allow me the indulgence.

  • Second Time Round

    Second Time Round

    Shoot the same shot twice and it’ll never be the same. No matter how hard you try this truth will hold. One of the great rewards of making photographs is the differences, both subtle and great, that arise between exposures. Tactical changes take these differences even further. This brings powerful creativity to the photographer, affording all kinds of wonder and discovery throughout the process.

  • Winter Turn

    Winter Turn

    Feels like an age since I’ve made eyes with a proper winter scene on the salt marsh. Almost forgot how profoundly calming it can be, even with biting temperatures further sharpened by wind. Let this be the start of a great year of winter photography for southern New Jersey!

  • Be Here Now

    Be Here Now

    Nothing wrong with going back to the familiar. Returning to what works. Finding comfort in the things we know best. While I’ve been dabbling with panning motion blur in my landscape photographs, I took a moment earlier this week to remember my roots. Tack sharp salt marsh photographs at sunset. Now if you’ll indulge me…
