Smoooth Waters

We were on the way back from an excursion to a deserted island near Charleston. The light on the water as we glided by looked smooth and almost mesmerizing. I still get that feeling when I look at this shot.

You wanna fight!?

Caught this praying mantis in full on warning mode trying to fend off a cat. It was quite an impressive display and he got away.

Flying in the Light.

Trying something New: Weathering the Storm

So I have decided to try to post at least 1 picture a week this summer to get some consistent movement on the blog. So here is the first shot: This is from Top Sail beach in NC.

Charleston: Folly Beach Sunset

Last year we came down to Charleston, SC for a conference for Cathy and while there we took a trip down to Folly beach. There were some great old driftwood trees stuck in the sand and I thought immediately that this would be an awesome place to shoot some sunset shots.

Great Bend Park at Glenco

Near the old Glenco Mill in Alamance county you can access part of the Mountains to the Sea trail. It is also part of the Haw River Trail. It is a beautiful hike, complete with views of the Haw river and a man made waterfall. Well worth a visit.

Northeast Park

Here are some shots from one of our recent hikes at Northeast Park in Guildford County.
