Sunrise at the pier

 

A early morning shoot of the pier at Amelia Island & Fernandina Beach. I really enjoy waking up early and watching the sun come up. It was a beautiful start to the day and an amazing trip.

Dune at night

I always enjoy going out at night and seeing the stars. It’s fun to shot a subject matter that is not easy to shoot. I thought the beach environment is a good place to do some night photography. Can’t wait to go back.

I recently drove down to amelia island. I was able to get out and shoot. Amelia island is an amazing area, its part the barrier island of the Atlantic coast. I always enjoy exploring the beach or local state parks. This image is from a  access trail at fernandina beach.

Took a day trip to Tennessee, Tellico Plains area. It is near the Hiwassee River. A very beautiful area full of places to hike and camp. It was a good day trip. I recommend checking it out if you have not been there.

I Recently took a trip to Wyoming to see Grand Tetons & Yellowstone National Parks. Words can’t describe the beauty of either of these parks. Both spots are place everyone should see . The thing that I most enjoyed about being out west was the big sky and the dry air. This trip was a much needed adventure. I was not out there nearly long enough, current conditions from the Cliff Creek fire did make taking certain photos rather difficult but it was still incredible. All photos are available for purchase please look under the pricing tab for more details.

I recently went to Colorado on a trip to shoot some landscape photos. I was able to shoot three really incredible spots. On the first day I hiked up the Rockies and photographed what things look like at 14,000 ft. On day two I drove to the top of Pikes Peak again at 14,000 ft or 14,115 if you want to be exact. After Pikes Peak I headed over to Garden of the Gods. Truly breath taking views.  The trip was one I will never forget. It was challenging at times but what good adventure isn’t. I got rained on chased by animals and set next to some characters on both flights but thats what makes a good story.

I went to Stone mt to celebrate the 4th of July. I was surrounded by several other patriotic people anxiously awaiting the laser & fire work show. I shot some time-lapse of begging of the show and took some photos during. All in all it was a good celebration of Americas Birthday.
