Cooling off behind Schoolhouse Falls. It is always fun and refreshing to get behind a waterfall on a hot day! I was very impressed with my short camping trip into Panthertown Valley...despite the bears...I’ll definately be returning! . . . . . 16mm, 4 sec at f/16, ISO 100, Sony A7Rii, Panorama #Godscreation #heightofhappiness #behindthewaterfall #waterfall #cave #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #ncoutdoor_inc #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc #nature_waterfalls #waterfall_wednesday #bestwaterfalls #waterfallsfordays

The following image took place between the hours of 8:00pm and 6:00am... 8:00pm the skies were clear, kids behaving, wife is happy...so I made the last minute decision to grab my gear and drive to the mountains to create one image of me camping under the Milky Way. 10:00pm I started hiking up in the dark, hoping to find an open campsite, and trying not to bother the campers already down for the night (sorry bivouacking guy for almost stepping on you). 11:00pm I had settled on this spot, perfect for the panorama but not a very comfortable campsite as the best looking places rarely are. I went to work putting up the tent, positioning it for this panorama image and adding a flash inside to light it up. 11:30pm I took a panorama of the Milky Way as it started rising from the horizon to capture its full arc across the sky but it was too dark for the foreground. So it was time to get a few hours of sleep until the moonrise. 2:30am the moon was up and so was I to capture another panorama of the foreground. I increased the power of the flash in the tent and sat on the rocks to add myself into the scene (quickly stumbling my way there to beat the 10 second timer). 3:00am packed up the camp and headed down the mountain. Warmed up the coffee in my truck, put on some podcasts, and drove home. 6:00am back at home, started downloading images and then crashed into bed for a few hours sleep before heading into work! . . . . . #Godscreation #10hrsforanimage #stargazing #camping #milkyway #milkywaypics #nightimages #stars #astro_photography_ #night_photography_pros #night_shooterz #natgeospace #nightscaper #igworldclub_astrophotography #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #ashevilletrails #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc #tent_collective #tent_lifestyle

I’m looking forward to a long weekend exploring Transylvania County in North Carolina and getting more of these views. Downtown Brevard, waterfalls, mountain biking, hikes, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cradle of Forestry...lots to keep me busy. What are your favorite things to do in Transylvania County and Brevard? . . . . . #Godscreation #visitwaterfalls #brevardnc #dronephotography #johnrock #DJI #SeizeTheMoment #amountiantomyself #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #romanticasheville #ncoutdoor_inc #visitasheville #ashevilletrails #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc

Stillness over the lake at sunset.

What waits for you at the end of your journey? I’m thankful God will be with me then and is with me now! “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you” 1 Peter 1:3-4 . . . . . 35mm, 25 sec at f/4, ISO 500, Sony A7Rii #GodsCreation #paradise #promisedland #waterfall #nightphotography #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina #southcarolinawater #UpstateSC #discover_carolinas #upstateexposuremag #exploregreenvillesc @naturalsouthcarolina #yeahthatgreenville #igersgreenville #gvltoday #visitgreenvillesc #greenvillesc #UpstateSC #upcountrysc #greenville360 #nature_waterfalls #waterfall_wednesday #bestwaterfalls #visitwaterfalls #waterfallsfordays

I’m loosening up my elbow to get back into photography next week! I had a bacterial infection in my bursa that put me in the hospital for a week plus two weeks of healing...so I’m literally itching to go shoot again! DM me if you want to schedule a shoot! . . . . . 19mm, 8 sec at f/4, ISO 200, Sony A7Rii #Godscreation #healed #photographerselbow #lightattheendofthetunnel #steelwool #spinning #nightportraits #longexposure #steelwoolphotography #ig_steelwood #super_steelwool #long_exposure #CreateCommune #igersmood #sonyimages

Cookie’s Bridge! My wonderful wife putting up with a hike in the rain. I was wise enough to know I couldn’t get her to cross this slick log more than once or wait for me to dig out my camera so this is a quick iPhone photo had to do. We had a great hike going from the Cataloochee Ranch to the Swag and back, pastures, forests, balds, creeks, and a waterfall! . . . . . #Godscreation #marriage #luckyguy #rainforest @theswagnc @cataloochee_ranch #hikingculture #hiketheglobe #hiking_collective #HikingWorldWide #visitnc #explorecarolina #ourstatemag #ncoutdoor_inc #wncmag @naturalunited #OnlyInNorthCarolina #AdventureAppalachia #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #scenicnc

Go Iceland! Watching the World Cup from the hospital as I recover from an infection. Sadly I won’t be doing any photography for a few weeks but I’ll be dreaming of being back here in Iceland...and maybe I’ll take this time to plan a trip this fall... . . . . . 24mm, 1/8 at f/16, ISO 100, Sony A7R #GodsCreation #ISL #worldcup #goiceland #iceland #icelandic #icelandair #icelandtravel #ig_iceland #iloveiceland #awesome_earthpix #exklusive_shot #stayandwander #discoverearth #modernoutdoors #roamtheplanet #ontheroadiniceland #sonyimages

It’s hot here in South Carolina, definitely a perfect day for a swim in a lake! I’ll be out canoeing and swimming from Hickory Knob State Park today. Where do you go to cool off? . . . . . . 24mm, 1/1250 at f/5.6, ISO 400, Sony A7Rii #GodsCreation #jumpin #paddleandswim #canoeing #summer #lakejocassee #discoverSC #explorecarolina #onlyinsouthcarolina @scstateparks #southcarolinawater #UpstateSC #discover_carolinas @naturalsouthcarolina #upstateexposuremag
