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. […]

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 […]

Photographing the Stars – Grandfather Mountain Nature Photography Weekend

Last night I had the great pleasure of talking at the Grandfather Mountain Nature Photography Weekend near Blowing Rock, NC.  What an engaging group of folks we had.  It was really fun to show a few of my images and talk about the process to capture them and even a little bit about processing. […]

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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]
