Banded Shrimp, Turneffe Atoll, Belize

Banded Shrimp, Turneffe Atoll, Belize

I’ve mentioned in some of my posts that I love scuba diving, but I haven’t shared all that much of my underwater photos or videos (although you should check out my seal video). Truth be told, underwater photography is truly¬†hard and my results are a little hit and miss. I’m not even sure I actually like doing underwater photos, although I love it when I get good results. I plan to write more about my scuba photos in the future, but today let’s take a took at these banded shrimp (stenopus hispidus) living inside a sponge on Belize’s magnificent Turneffe Atoll.

Blue Hour, Venice Beach, California

This photo is a companion to a previous photo of a Venice Beach sunset I took in 2019. Both photos show Venice’s iconic lifeguard stations on the same evening, although I took this one of a different hut later towards twilight.

Autumn at Hemlock Falls, South Orange, New Jersey

Autumn at Hemlock Falls, South Orange, New Jersey

It’s fall here in New Jersey, which means the leaves have turned fiery colors with greens now replaced by yellows, oranges, and browns. I wanted to capture that spirit, and a recent rainstorm meant I could get fall color side-by-side with a fully flowing Hemlock Falls in New Jersey’s South Mountain Reservation.

Nubble Lighthouse at Dawn, York, Maine

At the end of my Puddles at Sunrise post, I mentioned how I nearly missed out on another amazing photo. This is that photo – a glorious sunrise behind the Nubble Light itself. I was tired and not thinking clearly, and after getting the earlier photo my brain kept telling me “go home, we’re done.” It wasn’t until I saw another photographer shooting in this direction that I realized I could do more.

Memorial Bridge, Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Memorial Bridge, Portsmouth, New Hampshire

I love the Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, NH. Built in 2013, this bridge replaced an older bridge of the same name. During our stay in Portsmouth last July, I wanted to capture a photo of the sunset behind the bridge to show off its very cool structure. After some exploration, I settled on taking this photo from Four Tree Island (attached to the larger Pierce Island).
