“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 […]

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 […]

The Lone Survivor – Folly Beach, SC

At the far end of Folly Beach, far from the crowds, hotels and restaurants, this lone survivor stands resolute against the tidal onslaught.  How long it will stand is anyone’s guess.  I have visited on several occasions and cherished each moment.  After my visit I say goodbye, believing that very well could be the last time […]

Searching – A sescape from Newport Rhode Island

“I’ve spent half my life searching for the truth.  The left half of my life” – Jarod Kintz

I’ve always been enamored with long exposure seascapes.  The juxtaposition of solid immovable rock in high clarity and soft dreamy flowing water is amazing.  Add an interesting sky and it really can all come together perfectly.  I […]

Capers Island Kayak Camping Trip

This past weekend a bunch of friends headed out to Capers Island to scout the island and capture the beauty of the boneyard, dunes, beach and geminid shower.  We decided to kayak out to  the island, but we had too much gear so we got our friends at Coastal Expeditions to drop it on the […]

Sound Reflections – Hamlin Sound

This morning I got up early and checked the weather. Cloud cover looked perfect for sunrise anywhere up and down the coast and after a quick check of the tides I decided to head out to the marsh. Low tide was in a couple of hours which meant that I wouldn’t get stranded anywhere […]

“Beyond” – Botany Bay, Edisto SC

Beyond the horizon, off into the East, away from the cities and lights the skies open up and everything becomes clear.

This is a personal favorite of mine that I had neglected to share on here.  It was captured early one morning on the beach of Botany Bay on Edisto Island.  It was so dark […]
