Topsail Storms: Rays Panorama

This is from the same day as the last shot. The starkness of black and white really make this image.

Topsail Storms: Rays

Once again, Topsail didn’t disappoint! The sun rays were epic this particular morning.

Lazy 5 Ranch: Kangaroo

Another close up afforded to me thanks to Lazy 5 Ranch. The amount of different animals there was great!

Lazy 5 Ranch: I’m Lookin at you…

Another example of an animal that you would not normally be able to get close to. But thanks to Lazy 5 Ranch, I was able to get some great shots of this guy.

Lazy 5 Ranch: Hello There

If you ever have a change to pop by Lazy 5 Ranch, it is well worth the trip. You really get a chance to get up close and personal with some of the animals. I was feet away from this Giraffe.

Topsail Storms: Clouds Like Fire

As I looked up as the storm began to pass overhead I was astounded by the wicked look and texture of the clouds. When I turned it black and white it almost took on the look of fire.

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. 

Rosemary on Ice

I figure since it is so hot out, I would try to help cool things down with some shots I took after an early winter snow storm. The rosemary was peeking out and I loved the juxtaposition of the green herb on a field of snow. Location: Gibsonville, NC

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.
