Supermoon over Mark Island Light

I Decided to head out to Mark Island Light off Stonington to shoot the moonrise and also got a cruiser enjoying the moonlight sail!  These were shot using a 300mm in low light from a boat, and I used a Kenyon Gyro to keep the lens still.  These were actually shot a 320th of second at F2.8, and ISO of 250 to keep the noise down.  I was pretty happy overall and enjoyed the night ride back to Rockland.  The software I used on the Ipad was The Photographers Emeris (to line up the moonrise) and Garmin Blue Charts.  On the way back in the dark, I used the moving map on my iphone to avoid immediate obstacles, and used my non-gps maps on the ipad to plot courses.  Once I got back to Rockland harbor I had to switch over to google maps to find the launching ramp since the charts don't really show land stuff real well.  I used a SPOT tracker which was monitored by my Dad so he knew when I got back to shore safely... I hit one lobster buoy coming back and realized I needed a fixed light for night driving so I headed over to Hamilton Marine and got a really nice Rigid Lighting M-SRQ2 Driving Light, and wired in a cigarette lighter plug for it... can't wait to try it out.

Races 1 & 2 - New Zealand Pounces on the Puma

New Zealand seemed to have better acceleration,  getting their boat on the foils right after the gun and getting that critical first mark rounding lead which proves almost impossible to overcome.  Amazing toys for big boys here.

Full Moon over Marshall Point Light

Jumped on my paddleboard with my gear in waterproof bags, and headed over to Hupper Island, off Port Clyde Maine,  and set up the tripod using the Ipad moonrise location app TPE.  This is a merge of three photos with a 300mm and moving the moon down slightly from where it became visible...

Storm Nemo at Portland Head Light

Had to bundle up for this intrepid shoot which took me about an hour to finally get both these waves crashing at the same time... fun just to get out in this stuff if you are dressed correctly... thanks to Explore The Outdoors Worldwide for all my great gear... freezing spay was coming over the fence which is pretty rare out here.

Photo from the start of the Newport to Bermuda Race from the infamous wavelengthstudios Dauntless driven by Andrew Sims, photo taken by JH Peterson, but I took half the credit (and half the money) seeing he didn't pay me for gas money all summer!    Nice work by both of us...
