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: 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.

Flying in the Light.

Caught this pelican at just the right moment. Flying through the light in the aftermath of a stormy sky near dusk.

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.

Scenes from Semora

So we took a trip up to Semora recently for our niece’s first birthday party and as you can see while up there I got the opportunity to shoot a bit!
I walked outside to watch the above storm come in and while I was standing there marveling at the site I realized that I could be capturing this. I ran inside grabbed the camera and ran back out and was lucky enough not to have missed the whole thing!

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
