Yes I believe so +Nick Noble.  A new company has recently purchased it and is supposed to start work on that whole area this year.  I need to get more details.

Sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains!
What an incredible moment.  I sat here all alone as the darkness was overcome by the light, and warmth shortly followed.

I'm headed back to Western NC the first weekend in May for our Waterfall Workshop.  2 spots remain and we are running a 1 week special of 20% off right now if you want to grab one of the last spots.

I'm gearing up to go to Asheville this weekend.  Any must see location advice?

Edisto Beach, South Carolina

Surging foamy waves and threatening storm combine in magnificent display of force at the boneyard of Botany Bay, Edisto Beach.

I just got back from taking a client out to photograph the raw beauty of these live oaks and we had a fantastic time with some incredible light as the conditions changed rapidly. The sun threatened to peek out and we had splashes of color, then the storm took over and the sea turned wild. We had a great time and only managed to get a little wet. :)

+Tricia Booker from what I've seen so far we both captured some great scenes and I can't wait to see yours fully processed.  It looks like we timed it just right as it's rained non-stop ever since. :)

Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway

All rivers start somewhere. This trickle had some gorgeous early morning light against lush rhododendron vegetation. Greenery everywhere.

Only one spot left for our Waterfalls of Western NC on May 2nd-4th. Don't miss out!

I'm so ready for warmer weather! You?

"What Once Was"
Sullivan's Island, SC

We just concluded the +Mountains To Sea Workshops  Spring in Charleston Workshop and it was a blast. Excellent conditions on Friday and Saturday and then some very challenging weather on Sunday morning. A great group of folks and some amazing images. I can't wait to see what the rest of the group came away with.

This one was from Sullivan's Island on Saturday evening after a fantastic day of photography.

Hope you enjoy!

Adventurer, Landscape Photographer and Educator
I am an award winning fine art photographer and educator based in Charleston, South Carolina. I was born in Cape Town South Africa, and developed a love for both the ocean and the mountains at a young age. My thirst for adventure started early hiking and exploring Table Mountain and surfing the many beaches. Capturing and remembering this incredible world has always been my passion.

If you want to follow along with my adventures head over to my website and subscribe to the monthly newsletter.

Together with Tommy White I teach landscape photography through our Mountains To Sea Workshops business. Mountains to Sea Workshops is dedicated to providing the highest quality photography instruction and is designed for the outdoor landscape and nature photographer, from those just starting out to those that have been shooting for years.  Stop on by to see where we are headed next.
