Got up reeeeaaaaallllllyyyy early one morning and headed to the beach. Made it in time for sunrise 🙂
The main image is my favorite from the morning. I found this location just by looking around on google maps. I knew I would have to wait for low tide to be at the lowest around sunrise. I also needed decent weather/no rain. I finally got that combination yesterday, so I was up at 4am and headed to North Topsail Beach. I would have liked to have been there a little earlier, but I arrived just before the sun was coming up over the horizon.
Same morning, other versions:
This one was photographed a little later than the others. The sun was much higher in the sky, which is why the colors are so different. I used a 10 stop filter to get the motion in the water.
So while I was in Nashville, I stopped by an old favorite place – Radnor Lake. It’s been almost a year since I was last able to visit. This was what greeted me Monday morning – just how I remembered it 😉
I was in Durham, NC over the weekend for Durham Art Counsel’s Centerfest Art Festival. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, and especially to those who purchased prints and made it one of by best shows to date!
While in Durham, I decided to head over for a brief visit to Duke University to have a look around. Right as I was pulling in, the sky began to light up with brilliant sunset skies. I headed straight for the chapel and took this photo. I will definitely be back with more time to explore and photograph more of the campus.
I thought I’d share another photo from the sunset I watched from Cliff Top, near the LeConte Lodge in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This was taken a little before the last one I posted. The clouds and fog constantly moved in and out of the scene, it really was beautiful.
Last week was my first time hiking to the LeConte Lodge in the Smoky Mountains. We hiked the Trillium Gap Trail up, 6.5 miles +- to the lodge. After arriving around 5 pm, we ate dinner at the lodges dining hall and then headed up a little further to Cliff Top for a great view of the sunset. The clouds were constantly rolling through the scene, with some moments having near zero visibility and when those clouds rolled out you had this amazing view.

A couple of days ago, I got to ride around and explore the southern coast of North Carolina with my aunt and photographer, Marianne – check out her work to see fantastic black and white long exposures
This is a photo of the Johnny Mercer Pier in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina at sunrise.
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!

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 😉
