Northeast Park take 2

Went back to North East Park and shot some more images of the water with the nice blurred effect. Unfortunately I had one setting wrong on the camera (left image stabilization on) which left most of the shots blurry. Fortunately I was able to salvage the one above.

Painting with Water and Light

We took in a hike at Northeast Park last weekend and it was a great hike with over half of it following 2 different rivers.

The first couple shots below feel like they could be an abstract painting. I love the effect!

Baby Gabrielle!

Train Tracks

For work we went out to shoot a train going by for a video intro we are doing. It was perfectly dreary and we were excited to get a gritty feel for the video… The train never came. On the plus side I did get to play with a few shots on the tracks.

Simpson’s Recreation Center

Here comes the sun!

We were fortunate enough to have this view every day on the honeymoon. There were 2 days where I got up to see the sunrise. The shot above came from the first time I got up. The smoke from the wildfires played with the horizon making it indistinct which gave the shots an interesting look.

OBX – Part 2: Wildlife

The great thing about the Outer Banks is that no matter when you go it is teeming with wildlife! Tons of birds of all sort abound. Above is a Ruddy Turnstone. They were very much like the sanderlings running towards the waves when they receded and away from them when they returned. They had great
