Grand Rising!

A beautiful sunrise I was fortunate enough to capture, handheld, while out walking one morning last month.


Downtown ATL

Last weekend I spent some time with my younger brother walking and taking photos in Atlanta. The weather was freezing cold and I loved it! It really reminded me of home with it’s strong crisp wind and moody overcast skylines. The only thing missing was the downpour of snow that’s usually taking place up North this time of year. Surprisingly I didn’t shoot as many images as I would have liked, but I’ve really scaled back on the amount of images I shoot lately. Anyway, here are a few of the shots I liked. I believe I saw some more that I might add to this post later? I really love posting but I’ve been trying to be good and go to bed at a reasonable time. In fact, I’m sleepy right now so…good night everyone!

The Calm Of The Desert

Despite being mostly barren, I find that there is a stillness, a peaceful feeling of calm in the desert. This is the perfect time of the year to explore because, the temperatures are moderate to very cool. I was shocked to learn how cold it can actually get in the desert at night. While there isn’t an abundance of photo opps around every corner, there is still plenty of interesting sights to keep one occupied both as a photographer and as a curious human.

In the photograph below I happened upon a makeshift memorial for some unfortunate soul that lost their life in this exact spot. I can only assume it was from a traffic related accident? In the distance you can see how modern development has started to change the overall appearance of the scenery. In the far background lies beautiful outstretched mountains that I await to explore to uncover the potential mysteries I’m certain they’re hiding within. I’m really hoping to witness some of the native wildlife of this particular area.

I’m finding that it’s extremely cool to learn that there is more to Las Vegas than just casinos.

Morning Mashup/ 2 Skies In 1

This early morning¬†skyline has two uniquely contrasting cloud formations creating an interesting pattern, and color palette. ¬†In the second photo, the clouds at the top of the frame resembles burning flames against the dense, pillowy texture of the clouds in the lower half of the frame. I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen this strange combination? Nevertheless, the sky seems to always provide us with a dramatic light and art show across the atmosphere at any given moment. All we have to do is look up and pay close attention.

Hotel Window

The view from my hotel room window a couple of days ago as the sun started to set in downtown Phenix City, Alabama. I love all the wonderful shapes and colors that appear and change constantly as nature paints her masterpieces across the sky. As usual for me, no post processing was involved in any of these shots, they’re straight from my camera.
