Scotland, Isle of Sky: Old Man of Storr

The Isle of Sky in Scotland is one of the places we visited while in Scotland. I wish we had had more time there as it was full of incredible sites. The Old Man of Storr is one of them. The hike to get this view is not a cakewalk, though it is full of great views that definitely make the going easier.

Skellig Michael: Skellig Rising

As we got closer to the island, more, and more details emerged. Including the fact that it had is very own cloud that stayed perpetually above it. 

Skellig Michael: Out of the Mists

We took a boat out to visit Skellig Michael, and it was as dramatic as you would hope. With the island slowly becoming visible through the mist.

Topsail Storms: Out to Sea

We went back for our annual trip to Topsail only to have it cut short thanks to Hurricane Florence. However I was luck enough to get some shots before we had to go. This is one of my current favorites and I am thinking about making it a triptych for the wall. Location: Topsail Island,

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.
