Appalachian Trail, Jane's Bald
"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity" - John Muir
We just concluded our Astrophotography Workshop in Boone North Carolina and what a blast it was. Despite turbulent weather we got some incredible light and good clearing in all our locations to work on our night skills.
Here you can see our group traversing the ridge along Janes Bald with head lamps blazing. Storms rolled through the area all evening and different areas of the trail were drenched in rain. We skirted back and forth along the ridgeline avoiding the rain, cathing the best light and settling down in spots when the clouds cleared to capture those starry skies.
Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Outer Banks, North Carolina
I just returned from a much needed 10 day trip to the Outer Banks. and I kicked off the trip with our highly anticipated OBX Workshop with guest instructor . It was a blast and our group explored ancient lighthouses, dilapidated piers and marsh and dune scenes under some fantastic light. We also had some great meals together chatting about photography and laughing together. Good friendships were made and I hope that we all can stay in touch through the magic of social media and email before the next opportunity to meet again.
After the workshop my family moved our camp down from the Nags Head area to Frisco a little town in the heart of Cape Hatteras very near the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. couldn’t pass up an opportunity to get away for a bit and drive the 9 hours for a few photographs so he met up with me and we headed out to photograph this iconic Light.

I hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend and got time to cherish your loved ones and celebrate our armed forces. I had a great weekend and am getting ready to head into the hills for a spell.
Enjoy this Smoky Sunset!
Lincove Viaduct along the Blue Ridge Parkway
This is one of our favorite spots on the Blue Ridge Parkway or BRP for short. The morning light streams across the valley and lights up all the ridges as it winds its way across the escarpment driving away the dark.
Up on top of Rough Ridge you get the best view and it's only a short but fairly steep hike up from the Parkway. This was from last fall during our Fall Workshop and our guests were treated to a phenomenal sunrise. Signups are underway for this years event and in addition we have a Fall Waterfalls Workshop available.

Do you prefer mountain vistas or waterfalls?
There are only a few short weeks left until Sept 23rd, the first day of fall. At times like this, I find my mind drifting off to cooler memories and cooler locations like this one from back in February where the lowest actual temperature we experienced was around -14. With the sun out it was actually rather pleasant, but once it was gone and the wind picked up we sure felt it.
The lake was frozen solid and of course we had to at least give it a little test to see if we could fall in. :) Luckily no one did.
I'm currently planning for two backpacking trips into the mountains to cool off a bit, one just me and the boys. Not sure how long we will last, or how far we will hike, but I know it's going to be fantastic.
Hope you are staying cool!
What an engaging group of folks we had. It was really fun to show a few of my images and talk about the process to capture them and even a little bit about processing. There isn't a better way to celebrate my birthday weekend than on Grandfather Mountain.
Big shoutout to for letting me show his timelapse video Into the Atmosphere to kick off the discussion. Check out that inspirational work over at https://vimeo.com/81616727
Here is one of the star trails that I displayed. It is so much fun to see star trails develop in front of your eyes on the screen.
I put together a list of all the topics discussed last night and some links to key resources. If you are interested head over to http://coastalinsight.com/photographing-the-stars-grandfat…/
