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. The storm was out to sea and really framing the bird on the long strut of an old pier. I tried a bit of a time lapse to get a smooth ocean. I loved the colors.

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.

Uwharrie National Forrest Anniversary Excursion: The Uwharrie

Uwharrie National Forrest Anniversary Excursion: Marrow Mountain State Park

This year for our anniversary my wonderful wife planned an excursion to the Uwharrie National Forrest. It is an awesome place to go for hikes. On the other side of the lake from it also lies Marrow Mountain State Park. Both are very picturesque. We started it all off right with a visit to Marrow Mountain State Park.

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.

Auschwitz, Poland

Our first stop in Poland was Auschwitz. This is a place you have to experience. It is really hard to put it into words. Fortunately, I have images to help. Upon entering Auschwitz you quickly realize that there were 2 main sections of this camp. The first part was the “nice” section as you see
