10. Ohiopyle Snow
I was on my way to take photos of Cucumber Falls at Ohiopyle State Park but while I was walking around I looked up the hill side to see the fog rolling in. This made a really interesting image.
9. Glendale Night
Prince Gallitzin State Park is one of my favorite fishing destinations. Being in the middle of almost no where helps to see the stars and the Milky Way.
8 Assateague Lighthouse
Chincoteague Island on a bluebird morning during Easter weekend in Virginia we walked around Chinocteague to its famous lighthouse. The line was long to go inside so it made me look up and capture the lighthouse from the base looking up.
7 Big Ben and Friends
Baby Ben and his friends in the pasture checking out what was going on during Vale Wood Farms famous Pumpkin Patch
6. Laurel Highlands Sunrise
Hiking out to Beam Rocks on the Laurel Ridge Trail the sun poked in and out of the trees so this was a moment that the destination but the experience along the way was the photo.
5. Indian River Morning
Driving from Dewey Beach to capture the sunrise in Bethany Beach I found the moon super pleasing to the eye. I was going to stop at the Indian River Inlet to get a couple images of the bridge during dawn. When I arrived I noticed the moon would look cool with the lines of the bridge
4. Fair Night
My favorite night of the year it is the fireworks at the Cambria County Fair. So many lights and fried food smells. Deep Fried Oreos and Tripods.
3. Dewey Beach
Stars came out on this clear night with the light of Rehoboth Beach in the distance.
2. Blackwater Falls State Park
The famous waterfall that every photographer has in a 5 state radius. It does take some careful walking down to but it is rewarding. This is what happens when you visit a spot multiple time you start looking for a new perspective after capture the shot. The swirl in the same pool with a few fall leaves in it is the true story so I wanted to make it the main focal point. So I used my 70-200 instead a wide angle to capture the swirl
Wheels and Wings is an exciting night to capture all the bikes and characters that show up. Usually a street that is quiet at night becomes busy. I have always stayed on the sideline to capture the car lights but I noticed a sign put up to slow traffic. No better place to put your camera and tripod. I always wanted to capture the traffic go towards you on one side and away on the other side. Using a remote shutter release. I was able to stand on the side walk and watch this truck go with in inches of knocking over the sign and my camera.
I will be hosting a night photography workshop at the Lake Raystown Resort Art Open on October 17, 2015! We will shoot campfires and stars. So bring your tripod and camera to join in the fun. Just interested in creating? Plenty of workshops all day long to check out.
