“Bathed in Light” – Lincove Viaduct – Blue Ridge Parkway NC

Right near Blowing Rock, NC is a winding curvy section of the Blue Ridge Parkway that juts right out the side of the mountain for a short section as a viaduct.  This is one of our favorite spots on the Blue Ridge Parkway or BRP for short.

Up on top of Rough Ridge you get […]

Winter Workshop – Boone, NC

Is there anything better than great light and a snow covered scene.  Maybe a little fog in the valley and mist all around. 🙂

The above shot was captured on the last day of the Mountains to Sea Workshops Winter Workshop in Boone North Carolina.

The entire week before I carefully watched the weather and I was psyched […]

Weekend Away – Hot Springs, NC

I just got back from a weekend away in Hot Springs near Asheville. It was my wife’s birthday and we decided a cabin in the woods with no cell phone coverage, TV’s or wifi was just what the doctor ordered. Our major entertainment was the outdoors and of course the wood stove. 🙂

While there […]

“Behind the Falls” – Schoolhouse Falls, Panthertown Valley

Here is one where I got a little wet after an exhilarating hike exploring this area.  That seems to be a general theme.  Water and me.  🙂

This was from my first visit to Panthertown Valley and I’ve been back about 5 times since. It’s a fantastic hiking area and right here is a wonderful little campsite […]

“Layers” – Oconaluftee Overlook, NC

Bands of brilliant color glide through the sky as the sun makes its final approach. An incredible quiet morning above the trees Tommy and I watched the morning light descend on the valley. A couple of guys sat in their truck nearby as they remote controlled a GoPro further down the valley. They were […]

Fall on the Creek

I have been extremely busy lately.  Prepping for next years workshops, traveling all over the place and other events including a great presentation on astrophotography to the 21st Century Photography Club here in Charleston this week.  I’ve also opened a gallery in Boone at Cobo which was loads of work and really exciting.  We […]

Iridescence – Tremont, GSMNP

On our last day during the Mountains to Sea Workshop around the Great Smoky Mountains, we headed to Cades Cove to hunt bears and some gorgeous light. We got lucky catching lots of animals and several bears. There was tons of gorgeous light spilling into the valley as well.

After an excellent morning […]

Star Gazer

A self portrait captured over Price Lake off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was whipped after a very long day leading a class, but conditions were so perfect I had to check out this spot. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Smoky Mountain Gold

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve returned from the Smoky Mountains. It was my first trip to Gatlinburg, and I’m really glad that we travel early and late. That place is a zoo. Traffic is insane. It probably didn’t help that we went there during one of the […]

Green Meteor Over Price Lake

I just got back from Boone where we held our Mountain Astrophotography Workshop. Despite cloudy and rainy forecasts our group stuck it out and where richely rewarded with almost totally clear skies for several hours on Saturday night. We had a blast capturing the stars and playing with different compositions and light. […]
