Coastal twilight can be so peaceful. I had just finished up shooting a sunset swimwear shoot and we were walking back up the beach when we cam upon these two fisherman. the young boy disappeared in the shadow of his older brother, but his fishing pole shows sharply just below his big brother’s. Sometimes the beauty of family can simply add so gracefully to the beauty of Mother Nature and her evening colors. Luckily I still had my camera attached to my tripod so grabbing this shot was far too easy for the amount of pride I get from the capture. I know it is not perfect in it’s post production work, but the pure enjoyment of the moment is priceless!

Purple Haze – as this weekend rushes up to meet us, I would like to wish everyone an awesome, safe, and happy weekend! Also, a special announcement: This weekend will be my LAST weeekend of Active Federal Service. I will be signing out of the military onto my retirement leave next week! yay! As you all know, this means I will be moving…eww…packing and wrapping and sorting and ..well, you know what all has to be done! As a result, my blog entries may slow down for a couple of days until I can get my office set back up at home.
For now, this image has been extremely successful on my purchasing website so I hope all of you enjoy the color filter and the article. It just goes to prove that I have been around a while, and that I do love me some Jimmy Hendrix classic rock! Though one of my favorite tunes is Voodoo Child, I have not yet obtained a shot that I feel would accurately reflect that one. So, I will leave you with a portion of the lyrics;
“I am standing next to a mountain. chop it down, with the edge of my hand. well I can pick up all the pieces, might even make an island, might even..Raise a lil sand!” Happy weekend everyone!

Another long exposure shot of “the Boneyard” at Edisto Island, SC, USA. The sun was about to set (90 degrees camera right), the colors and emotion here were breathtaking! My senses were overhwelmed as this was the first time I had ever been to this location and was so busy trying to take in the gorgeous scenery, enjoy and savor the moments, and still concentrate on framing, focal length, iso values, aperture, and shotter speeds, along with timing the shutter to open with the long retracting waves of the ocean. For those who have never tried this…it is a daunting task! but one that is truly good for the soul.

Moving a little farther south, but still in South Carolina; I spent an evening on Edisto Island in a place called “the Boneyard”. Trying my hand at some of my photography skills, I used some high aperture settings along with some slow shutter speeds to capture some of the more surreal scenes of this magical beach. At high tide, the ocean rushes inland to submerge the trees that have clung to life on the beach. The trees pictured here are quite large, a grown person would actually have to reach up to touch the lowest limb on these trees feature near the center of this shot. you can see many more of my images of this gorgeous place by clicking here: http://www.stanshillingburg.com/photography and click on the Landscapes and Seascapes gallery. Hope you enjoying veiwing as much as I enjoyed photographing this wonderful gem in South Carolina! And again, by purchasing a print you help he fund my travels to photograph the most gorgeous subjects on earth, thank you!
