Landscapes and Seascapes


One of My favorite places ever for a photoshoot. Either for seascapes or lanscapes, or fashio and glamor; Folly Beach, SC, USA is amazing, and only a mile or so away they also have surfing (I will be posting a couple of those next week), fishing, a marina, and several great places to eat.
This Image was taken just before sunrise and is still one of my favorite images in the gallery. I hope everyone has a safe, happy, and quiet Holiday.

Mother Nature descends on Key West. Woke up…in the afternoon (big surprise in Key West, right?, only to walk out on the balcony to see this. Grabbed my trusty walk around camera and snapped this shot of a crazy raging storms rapidly moving in on Key West. I did enhance the contrast to show two things in particular: some people have said they can actually see “mother nature” in the dark cloud formation, and two; I needed to bring out the form of that waterspout in the background. I just can’t say enough about Key West, always a true pleasure to visit there (so yes, I do it often!), and the photo ops are incredible.

Location: Key West, FL, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D300, 18-200 VR lens, Mother Natures lighting and fury.

Fall and Summer Collide- in pastelesFall and Winter Collide- in pasteles: Such a beautful expression of the rich, warm colors of fall with the icey quiet and white of winter.
This image was one of a series I photographed while on vacation in the beautiful town of Gatlinburg, TN USA. The hustle and bustle of the town is quickly left far behind as the Great Smokey Mountains National Park runs right along the city’s boarders and in some areas, actual strecth right into the town itself. Obviously a photographers paradise where skiing, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, fly fishing, and tons of other outdoor activies all are easily found and photographic subjects readily available.

Location: Gatlinburg, TN, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead, circular polarizer filter.

Solitude….serenity….peace..tranquility.
Just before sunrise, the sea has a way of bringing peace and tranquility, a sense of place and perspective. At times, she is quiet and peaceful, and always willing to listen. At other times, she can be forceful and raging leaving you humble; yet amazed. She vast and constantly changing. She is always beautful no matter her mood be it raging and wild or peaceful and relaxing.
She is nature, wild and free.

Early fall and a “blue bird” kind of day. Gorgeous view from our cabin in Gatlinburg, TN, USA. Getting high above the crowd somehow frees the soul and sends out spirits soaring!
Image shot with a Nikon D700, 24-70 2.8, Induro CT213 tripod and an Induro BHD2 ballhead. Also used a circular polarizer filter.

A mountain stream near Gatlinburg, TN, USA.

Equipment used was a Nikon D700, a Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, circular polarizing filter, an Induro CT213 tripod and an Induro BHD2 ballhead. Using a high Aperture setting and a long Shutter speed of at least .30sec is absolutely essential to capturing the flowing water instead of “freezing” the action. The polarizer filter or an ND GRAD filter help to reduce the shutter speed.

As always, these images are available for your veiwing pleasure!

All images are available as wall art for your home or office.
