My recent trip to Key West Florida during the first week of March was my first ever trip to this area of Florida.  To be honest, I am not a big fan of Florida but the rest of my family is, and truth be told I was looking forward to some warm weather.  The long slow grind that is winter in the Northeast and New England was starting to take its toll.  I  had had my fill photographing white, grey and brown, I am ready to...

For the last 18 years the first week and a half of July finds me in Kennebunkport, Maine.  The trip is equal parts family vacation and photography excursion.  The photography portion of the trip requires 4 AM wake up times.  This allows me to arrive at my destination prior to  sunrise.  My list of destinations is extensive Lighthouses, beaches, fishing harbors, and lobster boats.  With any luck I will get the famous mixed bag of Maine summer weather.   Pre-dawn weather in...
