Please update your links as I have moved and updated my website for an entirely new look! Check it out!
I’m usually not much of a black and white photographer, but when you’ve got a beautiful 1937 Plymouth, it just screams for it. My brother-in-law, Russ, is a car fanatic. He knows his stuff and enjoys fixing them up. This was a recent classic he and his cousin Wesley bought. It re-sold so quick that I couldn’t get any shots in a more natural setting. It’s sitting on a trailer waiting to be hauled away! It would have looked awesome one a rustic dirt road somewhere (not that he would let it touch a dirt road). (more…)
I was so blessed to be part of the teaching team for the inaugural Homebuilders Gulf Coast retreat! Plus, the retreat was held at Camp Baldwin, a wonderful facility in Elberta, AL. On the first night there, the sunset was only so-so. I did HDR in the photo above to give it a more dramatic feel. This is overlooking Wolf Bay. (more…)
I’ve been here a lot lately, but I wanted a short trip and an opportunity to use my 10 stop ND filter. The above photo was taken with two shots. One for foreground and one with the 10 stop filter to make the waterfall and water silky smooth. The waterfall ended up being a 4 minute exposure. (more…)
Bud…. Weis…. Hey, where is Er?!?!
On my way down to catch some photos of flowers and scenery, I saw these two frogs hanging out around a pond. These frogs are HUGE! I almost thought they were fake! (more…)
Today I visited the Old Mill in North Little Rock for the first time. What a cool place! Unfortunately I was shooting in broad daylight, Still though, it was beautiful as the dogwoods and azaleas were at peak bloom! (more…)
I had been wanting to shoot some waterfalls with all this rain we’ve been having and I finally had a chance on Friday. I made the 2 hour drive out to Mount Magazine. After all these years in Arkansas, this was my first trip to this place. It’s beautiful! The big problem I had though was that there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Nothing messes up a good waterfall picture like direct sunlight. Oh well. The picture above is the only real keeper from the bunch in my opinion. I hope to go back on a nice overcast day to get some better photos. These first pictures are from Hardy Falls. This is a VERY easy waterfall to find because it is right along the road on the way to Mt Magazine. Actually, it is UNDER the road as this is a bridge. The falls are named after the man hired to build these awesome bridges along the the way up the mountain. There are waterfalls on both sides of this bridge that are beautiful.
There is a beautiful barn on the way to my parents’ house that I’ve wanted to shoot for awhile. I finally set out for a sunrise yesterday. I think I’ll give it another shot too at sunset so I can catch some golden hour rays on the barn front. I love this place! Notice the super-cool cross.
Today’s photo trip was extra special because I was joined by my daughter, Brooke. She was out for Spring break so she joined Dad on this journey. (more…)
