Smoke Over Water

Not the kind that Deep Purple sings about, but about the sun showing through a thunderstorm that just moved through.  Taken at Lake Crabtree in Raleigh, NC.

Lake Crabtree, NC

without comments

It’s been a little while since I last posted.  I had a bit of change in my day job (the one that feeds my photography habit) that has really cut into my photography.  In addition, my daughter and sons have discovered MineCraft and have monopolized my computer.  However, I am back and the time off has allowed me to refocus, re-energize, and rediscover my love of black and white.  This is a one minute exposure of Lake Crabtree in Raleigh, NC from a recent trip that I took.  Hope you all enjoy!

Lake Wheeler

Family Time

I had a great time with my family on Sunday hiking both peaks of Mt. Joy in Valley Forge National Park.  It was a tough hike as the trail was snow and ice covered, making the trip a little slippery; as a result I think I’m going to invest in some crampons. For those of you who follow me, you know I spend a lot of time in the park.  I love the park and it’s a great asset for the Philadelphia metro area.

Lake Wheeler

I was lucky to get this shot of Lake Wheeler near Raleigh North Carolina recently.  With the rough weather this year and winter vortex, Raleigh was slammed with a lot of snow (a lot by southern standards) the day I arrived.  Many of the roads were closed, as was the park, because roads were covered with ice and snow.  Luckily, there was a great view of the lake close to the entrance, so I parked the car and walked around the gate and set up for this shot.

Shades Of Late Summer

It Sure Is Cold

I’m in North Carolina this week, and old man winter has decided to take a southern vacation.  I was out early this morning in single digit temperatures to take some photos of Wheeler Lake in Raleigh.  I’m really starting to miss summer and warmer weather.

Shades Of Late Summer

I love late summer when the colors start to turn from green to browns, just before the full fall color pallet shows.  When I took this shot, I really wanted to focus on the reeds in the foreground, and introduce a lot of bokeh to help stress the sun setting in the background.

Summer Time In The Outer Banks

without comments

Summer time in the North Carolina Outer Banks is absolutely beautiful. The Outer Banks are 200 miles of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina and portions of Virginia. Home to the first English colony and Kitty Hawk, the islands have plenty of history. Dotting the beaches are several large beach houses that overlook the ocean like this one

A Horse of Course

without comments

I heard it said once that every great photographer needs to take a picture of a horse.  Well, I guess this is my attempt at being a great photographer.  This horse is the rare Spanish Mustang and is an endangered species on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
