Coastal Adventures

Summer Nights – Charleston, SC

On a cool evening a little while back I had the great pleasure of sharing one of my favorite sunrise and night viewing locations with two new friends.  We arrived late and worked our way back and forward on the long pier relishing the cool as the sun departed.

It was a special moment and […]

Happy New Year!

So I’m a little late wishing you all a Happy New Year. Sorry about that, I’ve been out of commission with the flu since Christmas. In fact my whole family has had it and it’s been awful.  We are all on the mend now, but it’s seriously taken its toll.  We had hoped for […]

Capers Island Kayak Adventure

Tomorrow I’m heading out to Capers Island with some good friends to scout and prepare for a special trip next May with Mountains to Sea Workshops.  Like my last trip out there we are kayaking out to the beach and camping on the island returning the next day.  However this time we are using a boat […]

“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 […]

The coastal errosion of the barrier island offers many photographic opportunities.  Here is one from Edisto Island.  These trees are fascinating and they continue to stand in there relentless determination against the […]

“Night Strolling” – Isle of Palms, SC

A gorgeous evening for a stroll under the stars. This was shot directly towards downtown Charleston and straight into all the light pollution. In a twisted way I really like the color and light that it adds.

I was suprised to see so much flooding on Isle of Palms, probably due to the super high […]

Take Me Home

“Take Me Home”Ocracoke, OBXOne from the road. I’m absolutely blown away by the dark skies in the Outer Banks. This was captured on Ocracoke where the only access is by ferry or small private airplane.

This country road leads out to the beach and I met a group of bioluminescence hunters on their way out. Apparently […]

Bodie Island Lighthouse under the Stars

I am fascinated by astronomy, the galaxies and stars and I’ve always wanted to photograph them, especially the Milky Way as the definition is so intense. One of the most difficult aspects to creating good astrophotographs is the other elements to include in the image. An image of solely the night sky is not […]

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.
