Topsail Storms: After the Storm

The sky was perfect for a black and white shot after a storm. I love the sky against the water in this shot.

Topsail Storms: Rain on Waves

Here is a panorama as the storm progressed up the coast to begin to encompassed us as well. I really liked how the rain coming down started to give the waves a softer look. 

Topsail Storms: Rays and Rain

As one of the storms headed out to the ocean it then started making its way up the coast. I really liked how this shot looked in black and white and had some faint sun rays and well as the rain in the same shot. Location: Topsail Island, NC Settings: f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/500 of

Topsail Storms: Night Lightning

On a recent trip to Topsail Island, NC we had a thunderstorm roll out to the ocean at night. The lightning was lighting up the landscape from pitch black and I knew it would be a great time to try and capture some!

Topsail Storms: The Wicked Shelf

While at Topsail we had a couple storms come through and over the coming weeks I will be posting shots from them.  For the first one, I thought I would share this shot of a massive shelf cloud boring down on the beach. I was almost giddy as I stood out taking pictures of it while the gust front blew through and then I scrambled for cover as the rain began coming down. Living in a hilly, forested state, it is so very rare to get a great view of a storm like this! Needless to say, I was a little excited. 

After the Storm

Stormy Sunset

After a storm that knocked the power out and destroyed a huge tent we had in the back yard, the setting sun lit the underside of the clouds in pink. It was beautiful! Location: Gretna, Va Settings: f/4.0, ISO 250, Shutter Speed 1/20 of a second.

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. We didn’t have time to go back that year, but we definitely made time this year…

Uwharrie National Forrest Anniversary Excursion: The Uwharrie

If you visit the Uwharrie the first thing you will learn is that most of its trails main audience is horse back riders. Fortunately when we stopped by the ranger station on our way in we were informed that if we wanted to try hiking any of the trails that were for Horses, Bikes, and Hiking, that we would want to not do that on a weekend because they would be packed with horse riders and thus dangerous to hikers.

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.
