Southport Lighthouse, Kenosha, Wisconsin

June 26, 2016

While on family vacation, my cousin and I visited this lighthouse and climbed to the top. I took a 360° panorama from the lantern room and a 360° video of us walking back down the spiral staircase. 


Modine-Benstead Observatory

June 25, 2016

This is the Modine-Benstead Observatory in Union Grove, Wisconsin. Many thanks to the Racine Astronomical Society for their hospitality and warm welcome, giving us a tour of the observatory and allowing us to shoot some night photography from the grounds when we crashed a member’s night meeting unannounced. I was in Wisconsin on family vacation and my cousin, Steve Gauthier, and I decided to do some impromptu night photography with Shane & Gabriella Brossman and Alexander Cummings. Looking for the darkest skies we could find within a half hour drive or so, we wound up at the observatory and were very happy to be welcomed by other night sky enthusiasts!

Foggy Sunset from Cadillac Mountain

June 6, 2016

I took this panorama of fog and sunset over Bar Harbor from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park on June 6, 2016, 7:50 PM. It is stitched from 28 photos with Photoshop (it was too large for Lightroom). The sun was setting fast and the fog was moving fast too, so I shot a single row at 140mm, f/8, ISO 64, 1/20 sec. I didn’t have time for a second row or longer focal length. I chose f/8 and focused on the ridge where the hikers were because I liked the town and fog being slightly out of focus in the distance compared to the sharp outline of the ridge catching the last of the sun’s golden glow.
