Gorgeous mountain top views, charming little towns, and waterfalls around every bend in the road made Northeast Georgia an exciting and beautiful place to spend a little bit of time.
The beauty of Chattanooga becomes apparent on the first evening and that is exactly why I have been going back ever since with my camera in hand. Here are some of my favorite photos.
My long weekend in Pigeon Forge was over but I wasn’t about to leave Tennessee without a scenic drive first. I zipped through Gatlinburg and hopped on Newfound Gap Road through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. What a beautiful scenic drive it was. In no time at all I was surrounded by vibrant yellow […]
From New York to Georgia the Appalachian Mountains feature some of the most beautiful vistas in the country and it only gets better in the fall. As deciduous trees begin their annual show of color people get out of the house for long drives on scenic routes, exciting hiking trails, and gorgeous scenic overlooks. After […]
I only had three days to spend in Columbia so I didn’t waste any time getting to the good stuff. The South Carolina capital had always remained an intersection of interstates for me but this time I took the scenic route in, and out, as I explore the city. I found an exciting zoo, chased […]
I’ve spent a lot of time in Charleston over the last few years. Every time I try to visit a different area around the greater Charleston area and capture the essence of the Low Country through my photography.

It’s one of my favorite places to visit in South Carolina, rivaling even […]
Every day an hour before sunset I begin a routine that has become second nature to me: pull out a map, check the direction of sunset, and scout a location for a potential photo. I have several apps that help me with planning the location down to a specific GPS coordinate. I arrive at the […]
Summer across the Southeastern United States is so much more than just long days and warm temperatures. It is a time of year marked by local farmers’ markets, Friday nights spent at a drive-in movie theater, water activities such as kayaking or swimming, and epic thunderstorms that lead to beautiful rainbows.
Hungry Mother State Park is one of those hidden parks in Virginia that also turns out to be one of the best. It was part of the original six parks to open in June 1936, but this was the location of the governor chose for the grand opening ceremony. Today the 108-acre park’s main attraction […]
I have always been fascinated with the power of lightning streaking across a dark sky, soon to be followed by a bellow of thunder. Today that fascination has manifested itself as a bit of an obsession to capture amazing photos of the power of nature. This year I bought a new toy that made all […]
