Sea Smoke Gloucester

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Sea smoke is an amazing phenomenon and an absolute blast to photograph. But it takes some mental preparation. As you know, the sea smoke manifests itself when the air temperature is colder – much colder – than the temperature of the water. Here on the northeast coast, that usually means that the air temperature is …

Eastern Point

Before pointing my camera into the sun to catch the wild sea smoke, I was focussed on the lighthouse itself. It was impossible to ignore the wild waves crashing against the shore, and in the frigid cold, near impossible to muster up the patience to wait for the right moment. I sat through three or …

Gloucester’s Smoking Sea

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Sea smoke is one of my favorite things to photograph. It is also one of my least favorite things to photograph. And I love my friend Steven Perlmutter for dragging me out to photograph sea smoke this morning, almost as much as I hate him for it. We were on the fence about going this …

Back in 2017 I had the pleasure of visiting the great city of Berlin. Friends of mine had moved there a couple of years before in an effort to expand their cultural experiences and indulge in their love of beer culture. They invited me to visit, and I jumped at the chance. The invitation came …

Here is another example of the amazingly diverse landscape of the great state of Uta… um, wait. This isn’t Utah! Indeed it isn’t. I’m taking a break from Utah images to go back in time to 2019 NXNW trip to Nova Scotia. Going through my blog posts I realized that I posted absolutely nothing from …

Sunset Point III

There was, we thought, a good chance that the sunset this evening was going to a bust. Behind us to the west the sun had been ducking behind a quickly moving series of clouds that appeared to be thickening. The entire scene was cast in the clouds’ shadow for several at a time. We hoped …

This is another image from the last sunset shoot on the incredible Utah Trip with the NXNW crew. I had set up my tripod and framed my sunset image with my main camera, then wandered around with my secondary/backup camera for some handheld shots. That secondary camera was something I almost didn’t bring. I really …

Sunset Point Overlook II

We were confident all afternoon. The sky looked great and we anticipated a spectacular sunset. But of course, Mother Nature threw us a curve — she threw a bank of dark gray clouds between the earth and the setting sun to the west of us. Our hopes for a light-show started to fade. Mother Nature …

A Canyon View in Top Light

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

As we made our way through Canyonlands and along the Colorado River I grabbed a few frames with the La Sal range looming in the distance. The La Sal range was ever-present. This image was captured near mid-day. The sun was high in the sky, so it was not the optimal time for landscape photography, …

Mars Utah

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Without the benefit of affordable space travel, I suspect this is the closest I will ever get to seeing the surface of Mars in person. This was the location of our last sunrise shoot on the trip — at least for some of the guys. I opted to to shoot at the giant butte with …
