Nice, but not my time of day

I was having dinner Saturday night with Mitzi (my ex) and she told me she was going to do something cool on Sunday, but it was not my time of day. I asked what it was, and she said that as part of the sixtieth anniversary of the mile high suspension bridge at Grandfather Mountain, […]

Low tide at Hopewell Rocks

Actually the tide had been coming in for almost 2 hours when I shot this.  I would have been 15 to 20 feet under water at high tide. Look at the rocks and you can see the high tide water level. Hopewell Rocks, on the Bay of Fundy are a spectacular natural wonder that most […]

If you can’t see the fish and lobsters, it’s because I ate ‘em

This very ordinary parking deck on Rankin Street looked like a good possibility, so I set up my tripod and shot nine exposures from 1/5 of a […]

Dark chocolate lounge

With no champagne to filtch (an inside joke – you know who you are) I took my dark mood to Asheville on Saturday evening for a few hours of night photography. I ended up outside a dark chocolate paradise, the french broad chocolate lounge, and made this HDR composite of nine separate exposures. How many […]

Sundown where the geese roam

While everyone else was watching the Bears, Seahawks, Patriots and Jets, I managed to get my butt off the sofa and head to the mountains with a friend for the afternoon. This scene near Valle Crucis, NC caught my eye. There was even a small patch of sand where I could kneel down and set […]
