Autumn on the Shore

I headed out very early this morning to be on location at Blackwater NWR at sunrise. I was hoping for a bit of fog and maybe some frost, but unfortunately it wasn't enough moisture over night to produce either one. I settled for a beautiful sunrise with some really nice clouds.

After finishing up shooting sunrise along the Blackwater River, I drove around for a few hours shooting whatever I could find. The autumn color is still quite good in many parts of Talbot and Queen Anne's Counties, so I focused my attention on coming away with some nice autumn images for my fine art and stock portfolio. Here a few images from todays shoot. Enjoy!

Great Falls Autumn Workshop - Images

We had our second to last photography workshop last weekend at Great Falls National Park, VA.
The weather was cold and overcast for much of the weekend with a little bit of fog and good light at sunrise on Sunday morning. I would like to thank the workshop participants for a really fun weekend and good company. The foliage this year has been about 2 weeks late and we ended up being in the park during peak foliage conditions. Due to the soft light and wet weather we turned our attention from shooting "Grand Scenics" along Mather Gorge to recording intimate portraits of the woods and macro and abstract shots. Here are a few of my favorite images from the week. Enjoy!

Pre-Workshop Shoot at Great Falls

I awoke at 4:00am this morning to head out to Great Falls National Park for a morning shoot in the park and then along Scott's Run Nature Preserve before heading over to Meadowlark Gardens for my "Creative Close-ups" Course. I had some really nice light at sunrise and some great color, finally, along Scott's Run. Next weekend is the Great Falls Photo Weekend and there are still 2 spots available if anyone is interested in attending. We will have an all day photo shoot with a 2 hour break for lunch and photo critiques on Saturday and then a 3 hour morning session on Sunday morning. The cost is only 124.99 per person. Please e-mail me if you are interested in registering.

Here are a few shoots that I have processed from this morning. Enjoy!
