Coastal Adventures

Guiding Light – Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks, NC

I just returned from a much needed 10 day long trip to the Outer Banks.  Tommy White and I kicked off the trip with our highly anticipated Mountains to Sea Workshops OBX Workshop with guest instructor Athena Carey.  It was a blast and our group explored ancient lighthouses, dilapidated piers and marsh and dune scenes under some fantastic light. […]

“Character” – A lone tree at Bulls Island

“Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Last week I headed out to Bulls Island with a group to capture some stars.  Unfortunately the skies were very very cloudy and I only saw one star. Never fear there is always sunrise and more to work with.  For the daylight […]

Bulls Island and Spring in Charleston Photo Workshop

The rush of the water and the pull of the tide as a gnarled old tree still stands chest deep in the swirling Atlantic.
If you have never seen these boneyards along the coast of South Carolina and Georgia then you are missing out. This twisted speciman on Bulls Island is much more interesting in […]

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 […]

Hanging On – Hamlin Sound, Mount Pleasant, SC

I’ve wandered out into the marsh several times to catch a sunrise over the grasses and waterways many times.  Quite often it’s an adventure.  I’m not entirely sure why.  You would think after a while it would become second nature and routine.  Everytime I go I have little episodes where something happens.  On this […]

Bulls Island Expedition

On days like this when the rest of the world is bracing for the onslaught of winter weather, I relish the warmth of the coast and the remote islands around the low country. This island, Bulls Island is 5,000 acres of dense maritime forest, miles of hiking trails and fresh water ponds teeming with […]

This Way to A Mental Reset

I captured this a few days ago as I ventured out onto the beach in search of solitude. There is nothing finer than a stroll on the beach to let the mind relax. There is something about the beach that allows you to let go of everything else and clear the mind.  It is […]

Washed Away – Bulls Island

A few weeks ago I found myself riding in the back of a government owned pickup truck leading a group on a sledge, safari style through the maritime jungles of Bulls Island. We were hunting dark skies and had arrived early to see the wildlife and capture sunset in the boneyard. The amount of […]

“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 […]
