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 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.

Um… Wow!

I am sure you are looking at that first photo and you are stuck by 2 things. 1st: “Wow! What a beautiful picture!!”, and 2nd: “Wait a second, that is not JP’s name underneath that photo in pink!!” Welp, you would be correct on both accounts. Not only is it a stunning picture, but I
