What a beautiful place this was!
No gates + No entry fees + No closing times + No tripod police + Beautiful location = Photographers dream
I took a quick roadtrip (quick because I was leaving from Raleigh, NC) to the Outer Banks. I hung out at the Bodie Island lighthouse for a couple hours. Shooting it before, during, and after sunset and into the night. I’ve got a couple of photos that I want to share over the next week or so. Hope you all enjoy!

So I was setting up to photograph the Raleigh, NC skyline at sunset/night when I turned around and saw this massive ugly front moving in behind me. I decided to stay in hopes that it would move over the city and that I could get a shot of it before it started raining. Right after I took this photo, it started pouring and I had to run back to car. Even though it was a short distance, I was soaked!
Here is an iPhone photo of the front as it came in behind me:
So I’ve been away from my computer for a couple of weeks. During that time, I visited Atlanta and was able to shoot from this incredible location. Located near Georgia Tech, I’m sure it’s a g0-to spot for many photographers in the area. There is a chain link fence with a hole cut in it, just big enough for my lens, and just tall enough for my tripod. Convenient
So I was finally able to get out to shoot a little this past weekend with a friend. We headed to the classic Nashville spot and grabbed a few photos. You should check out his photo of the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge

About an hours worth of 30-second photos, merged to show the movement of the stars.

I headed out a couple of days ago in search of a good night photo. I ended up in College Grove, where this beautiful church is. I’ve passed it before, so I’ve thought about a night shot. The problem was the street lights in front and to the side. I had to shoot from this angle to block the one on the side. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well. This is approximately 45 minutes worth of 30 second exposures, blended to show the motion of the stars.

The Nashville Skyline with stars and the full moon overhead. Don’t you wish this were possible? The night sky is amazing, I wish we could see more of it over the cities. This is, in fact, a composite created by merging several photos together. The night sky was photographed miles away from the city and then blended into the photo of the Nashville skyline to make an artistic version of Nashville at night.

Thursday Night Football in Nashville, unfortunately the Titans couldn’t pull out the win over the Colts at LP Field. On the plus side, the skies were great right before the game
