Just a walk in the woods

Published August 3rd, 2011

I was back in Atlanta to visit the fam and to see Derek Trucks this last weekend, but of course had to disappear into the woods for a while. To those familiar with the Roswell area, I live about 30 seconds from the Chattahoochee River and a few feeder creeks. I wasn't comfortable with bringing my camera into the actual river because of changing water levels and an incoming thunderstorm, but the following day I took a day hike along Vickery Creek, which feeds into the 'hooch. The trail ends at some man-made falls from an old paper mill. "Swift" and "Babbling" were my two favorites by far. I really like the visual effect of the green from the trees reflecting in the creek. There is nothing 'exotic' or crazy about this location...its basically in my back yard. Everyone should keep an open mind to the beauty of familiar places you may take for granted.

The real 'first post'

Published July 20th, 2011

I'm back with what was supposed to be my first post. I finally made it out to Folly Beach this morning around 5 AM. I was able to shoot through the whole sunrise process from total darkness to full sunlight...I have not been able to do that very many times. For being what I consider to be my first true sunrise shoot, I call it a success (minus the sliced up feet from a slippery rock/oyster bed). The cloud cover looked pretty weak as the sun began to rise, but more and more clouds over the horizon appeared with increased light. These clouds actually provided a nice 'ray' effect from their shadows (as seen in Burst). I plan on making out to Folly, Sullivan's and Isle of Palms a few more times for sunrises over the next month or so...hopefully with a slightly scouted out approach.

First Post

Published July 15th, 2011

Welcome to my inaugural blog post (ever, so bear with me)! I'll start with a little about myself...

I'm currently sitting at my place in beautiful Charleston, SC...the heart of the south for sure. I graduated from College of Charleston's geology department. Wilderness and photography have been my main focus for many years now and what a better way to satisfy both of those than geology?

I originally was planning on uploading the first post with some new material from Folly Beach this morning, but when I woke up (4:30 am) to head out there, I saw the weather map and apparently Folly was under a gigantic thunderstorm...so I had to bail on this morning's venture. Hopefully I'll be able to get out there again in the next few days.

Enjoy what you do
