Waterfalls Part 1

My dad and I, one evening, while just driving around looking for pictures, saw this waterfall off in the distance.  Dad and I pulled to the side of the road to snap some quick pictures and while there we met a really cool guy who offered to take us to some other nearby waterfalls. We obviously took him up on his offer and I had a chance to take some really great pictures of them. I’ll post some of those later on, but for now here are the pics I took at the first waterfall.


A Foggy Morning

Woke up early one morning during our time in the mountains to take some pictures of the fog. The pictures came out with a kind of creepy, but mystic feel which is pretty appropriate for the fall and Halloween coming up.

Keep posted for some more mountain pictures. I still have a lot to work through.


Moonrise Over Weaverville


Blue Ridge Fall

This past weekend, during our fall break, we spent time in the Smoky Mountains hiking, exploring, visiting family and friends, and of course taking lots of pictures. I have enough pictures to go through and edit to keep me busy for a long time. It was a perfect time for pictures as the weather was great and the leaves were just starting to change into their fall colors. Keep posted for more pictures that will be posted soon.

Ocracoke Island


Currituck Lighthouse

This was the last North Carolina Lighthouses for me to photograph. I would really like to go back and take pictures of the others sometime. We arrived at Currituck just in time for the “golden hours” and the golden light from the sun created a great glow on the bricks.


NC Zoo Part Two

These are from a trip to the NC Zoological park. I’ve got some more coming later on.


Haw River Photo Shootout

Alamance County’s having a photo shootout for Earth Day. The only rules are that you have to take them within a certain time frame and they have to be taken of the Haw River. All of these are from the Swepsonville River Park. Here are the ones that I entered, plus a few.


Outer Banks From the Air

My uncle Mark took me up in his plane with my dad and sister a couple of weekends ago. We flew for about an hour and reached Kitty Hawk to First in Flight Airport where the Wright Brothers first took flight. From there we flew down the length of the Outer Banks, all the way to Cape Lookout. On the way we flew over Cape Hatteras, Okracoke, and Cape Lookout lighthouses. We also traveled over Croatan Naitonal Forest. This trip was nicely timed right after a snow storm so there was still some snow on the ground at Cape Lookout. The pictures turned out well when I was able to avoid the glare from the window.
