It is amazing how much light the moon reflects from the sun! Here is a timelapse from a photoshoot on Black Balsam @deweyjoshua and I did of my tent with the Milky Way. The timelapse starts with the moon still up behind the camera and Josh and I run around framing up compositions. As it sets you can see just how dark it gets and the Milky Way pop out of the sky just before sunrise starts to light the horizon. It looks like this will be the first month this year I miss photographing the Milky Way due to weather, work schedules, and the moon...hopefully I’ll get a few more shots of it before it is gone until next February. . . . . . #Godscreation #timelapse #starscomeout #astrophotographer #milkywaypics #nightimages #longexpoelite #stars #milkyway #astro_photography_ #night_photography_pros #night_shooterz #natgeospace #nightscaper #igworldclub_astrophotography #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #ashevilletrails @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc

Even though I was racing the sunset to find a campsite I couldn’t help but stop and photograph the trail leading up to the upper meadows below Three Fingered Jack. A trail that keeps getting better the farther up you go!

Thank goodness my remote was working...I bushwhacked down to setup the camera, scrambled back up, took a few shots, hiked back down, adjusted the composition, climbed back up, took a few more shots, staggered back down to get the camera and finally crawled back up to head home....Lots of work but a fun place to photograph. Swipe to see the aerial view! . . . . . 27mm, 1sec at f/16, ISO 100, Sony A7Riii, remote, polarizer #Godscreation #selfieworkout #suspensionbridge #adventurephotographer #travelphotographer #waterfall #nature_waterfalls #waterfall_wednesday #bestwaterfalls #visitwaterfalls #waterfallsfordays #hikingculture #hiketheglobe #hiking_collective #HikingWorldWide #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina @scstateparks #southcarolinawater #discover_carolinas @naturalsouthcarolina #upstateexposuremag @naturalsouthcarolina #igersgreenville #gvltoday #UpstateSC #upcountrysc #greenville360 #DJI

Perfect day for a paddle out on to calm Lake Oolenoy across from Table Rock. Thanks to @tkr_freelife17 for helping me knock out three photoshoots this day. It was nice to get to spend some time relaxing on the lake and sending the drone up to capture it. Sadly the DJI Spark is sold and gone but I still have a backlog of images and video from it to share. I got the best results from it using the 9 image panorama, capturing three of the panoramas at various exposures (0, -1, -2) and blending them together in photoshop (after warping them to align). . . . . .

It was looking like it was going to be a wet and grey photoshoot with model @ellamarie_official. Lots of flash and warm gels to add light until suddenly the sunset found a way to light up the sky above us in the midst of the rain! . . . . .

Just a small thunderstorm over Capers Island on the South Carolina coast unlike the approaching hurricane. Watching the weather while camping on the island I noticed a storm would pass over me in the middle of the night. So I moved my hammock and tarp off the beach into the trees for some added shelter. As the storm closed in I tightened down the tarp and rode out the storm hanging in my hammock enjoying the sounds of the rain and thunder. Eventually the rain stopped but the lightning was still putting on a show so I got out and headed down to the beach to catch some the tail end of the storm! . . . . . 24mm, 4 sec at f/2.8, ISO 400, Sony A7Rii #Godscreation #thunderstorm #lightning #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina @scdnr #southcarolinawater #UpstateSC #discover_carolinas @naturalsouthcarolina #upstateexposuremag #discovercharleston #ExploreCharleston #CharlestonSC #SoCharleston #CHSForLife #AGameOfTones #MoodyGrams #CreateCommune #ig_killerz #awesome_earthpix #discoverearth #jawdroppingearth #ic_adventures #ic_landscapes #bns_earth #sonyimages

A peaceful night on Black Balsam watching the stars move across the sky and a few cars drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was windy as always on top of the mountain but I found this small ledge of the side which made a comfortable spot to sit and watch the stars. I’m hoping to grab one clear night before the rains come from hurricane Florence...maybe Thursday night? . . . . . 24mm, 15 sec at f/2.8, ISO 1600, Sony A7Rii #Godscreation #timelapse #calmbeforethestorm #stargazing #astrophotographer #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #blueridgenps #blueridgeoutdoors #milkywaypics #nightimages #stars #milkyway #astro_photography_ #night_photography_pros #night_shooterz #natgeospace #nightscaper #igworldclub_astrophotography

Exploring the tide pools below the Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Oregon is always fun to see what you will find. . . . . . 17mm, 1/6 at f/16, ISO 100, Sony A7Rii #Godscreation #tidepool #starfish #seastar #travelphotographer #lighthouse #oregoncoast #oregon #pnw #pnwwonderland #oregonexplored #oregonexplored #pnwisbeautiful #awesome_earthpix #discoverearth #ic_adventures #neverstopexploring

A few of my favorites with model @lauriebondd during our group adventure into DuPont State Forest! She was the first to brave the open water! . . . . .

The Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights! After seeing them on this night in Iceland I was hooked and had to plan another trip to photograph them. Finally a year later I’ve booked my flights and a campervan to spend a week in Lofoten Norway! I’m going in February 2019 and I’m looking for ONE other person to go with me. It’s expensive, exhausting, but so exhilarating to see these in person and if you are seriously interested send me a message and I’ll let you know the details or check my Prints and Workshops link on my website. . . . . . #Godscreation #timelapse #northernlights #auroraborealis #dancinglights #phototrip #travelphotographer #iceland #icelandic #icelandair #icelandtravel #ig_iceland #iloveiceland #awesome_earthpix #exklusive_shot #stayandwander #discoverearth #modernoutdoors #roamtheplanet #ontheroadiniceland #ig_killerz #awesome_earthpix #discoverearth #jawdroppingearth #ic_adventures #ic_landscapes #bns_earth #bns_landscape

Not my best night. The skies were predicted to be clear so I carried my canoe down to the lake and paddled across a bay to get some Milky Way photos with the canoe. My elbow was hurting after scraping it up a few times but I took some Advil and iced it before going and decided to tough it out. While it was mostly clear some distracting clouds wouldn’t leave the horizon near the Milky Way core. My elbow also wouldn’t stop distracting me as the pain wouldn’t go away. So I packed it up and canoed back, took some more pills and tried to find a position to sleep in that didn’t hurt. The next morning my entire arm was swollen and it was time to see a doctor. They sent me to the ER where they drained a large abscess from the elbow and admitted me to the hospital for the next 4 days while they gave me heavy antibiodics to kill the staph bacterial infection that had got into my elbow’s bursa sac. So not a photo I’m proud of or a moment I want to remember but a lesson learned to make sure I clean and protect any cuts while out exploring! . . . . . 16mm, 15sec at f/2.8, ISO 4000, Sony A7Riii #Godscreation #rubsomedirtinit #fail #canoe #astrophotography #milkyway @venturekayak #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina #southcarolinawater #UpstateSC #discover_carolinas @naturalsouthcarolina #upstateexposuremag

“For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” Hebrews 3:4. After photographing the sunrise on the Blue Ridge Parkway I noticed low clouds still hanging around Looking Glass Rock and knew they would give the falls some great atmosphere. Thankfully it was early enough that I was the only at the popular spot. I setup my camera and waded up the creek to admire this beautiful waterfall God built. . . . . . 70mm, 1/3 at f/16, ISO 50, Sony A7Rii #Godscreation #masterbuilder #waterfallcathedral #travelphotographer #waterfall #nature_waterfalls #waterfall_wednesday #bestwaterfalls #visitwaterfalls #waterfallsfordays #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #ashevilletrails #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc

Hickory Knob State Park Resort golf course. I dropped this and the canoe picture off this weekend as the result of my Artist in Residence at the park. I printed them on wood panels which allows some of the wood grain to show through giving the print a natural look. . . . . . #Godscreation #golf #golfcourse #Artistinresidence #dronephotography #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina @scstateparks #southcarolinawater #UpstateSC #discover_carolinas @naturalsouthcarolina #upstateexposuremag #DJI #SeizeTheMoment

“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, his is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.” Psalm 100:1-3 ... and all that noise and singing helps keep the bears away! . . . . . 21mm, 1/160 at f/18, ISO 100, Sony A7Riii #Godscreation #hispasture #sunsethike #travelphotographer #adventurephotographer #hikingculture #hiketheglobe #hiking_collective #HikingWorldWide #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #ashevilletrails #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc #sonyimages
