This was taken on a still and rainy morning in Valdez, Alaska. I was there with a couple of other landscape photographers while waiting for some decent light on the local mountain ranges. We decided to explore some of the areas nearby and this scene caught my eye. I love the simplicity and atmosphere. I also love the barely visible mountains in the background. Enjoy!

This is an 80 second long exposure of storms rolling over Safety Harbor in Florida. I love this area and have gotten the opportunity to photograph it on multiple occasions. It's always funny to be out taking photos working around and having to get out of the way of boat owners who were either putting in or pulling out. Luckily the little bit of rain meant it wasn't as busy as I have seen it. I still wonder if I'll ever get the place to myself though...

Evening Mist - A Nantahala River Long Exposure

Western North Carolina holds a special place in my heart. I’ve grown up visiting this area on vacation with my family since I was little. And have memories playing in creeks and rivers like this one going back about as far as I can remember. It’s like a second home up there.

The Nantahala River is a pretty well known rafting river about 2.5 hours north of Atlanta. Most of the river comes from the bottom of Lake Nantahala and as such, it’s one of THE coldest rivers I have ever stood in. We’re talking, my feet were numb by the time my shutter had clicked closed on this photo. I spent most of my summers as a teenager going to a christian camp in the area called Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters that made it a rule campers couldn’t call the water cold! Only the word, ‘refreshing’ could be used. And taking this photo? Quite refreshing.

This is my favorite time to be on the Nantahala. Most nights, the dam feeding the river closes and the river subsides down to a much calmer flow. The cold temperature of the water and the change in temperature surrounding sunset almost always introduces some mist into the scene and the lower level of water allows more of the riverbed features to show. This time of day usually means I’ve got the river to myself too! No need to dodge rafts or wait for a kayak to move through! Always nice.

I did some wading for this Nantahala River long exposure; Some slippery, almost disastrous wading… Ok, not disastrous but it probably would have been quite cold.

I took this photo at F11, ISO 250 and used a 30 second exposure. Growing up visiting this area so often, I was always looking for ways to explain why I loved it up there or why I always looked forward to going back! For me, this photo catches some small glimmer of what I was always trying to describe.

But at the end of the day, it’s still a place you’ve just got to visit for yourself.

This was taken just before sunrise during a recent trip to the Outerbanks. This is the Manteo Lighthouse. It's an awesome little lighthouse that sits on Shallowbag bay which is on the interior side of the Outer Banks closest to Nags Head. I actually managed to create this shot in between some light rain and as you can see from the sky, another storm was lined up to move in really soon. 

I was actually in the OBX for a landscape photography workshop which was coming ot a close on this morning. I love the balance, and depth of this image and also the serenity and storm. There's just a very interesting mix of elements going on. Technically, this is a 65 second long exposure taken using a 10-stop B+W nd filter with my D800 and a Nikon 24-70. Hope you enjoy! Looking forward to posting more from this trip soon.
