"Southern Storms"


Recent storm produced these beauties. Over 10 miles away I had the camera pointed at a cloud base, where the core had been dropping lightning from time to time. With a 250mm zoomed all the way in I was blessed to have captured these and center frame at that..

"Arc Angels"



Summer storm rolled in a few weeks ago. Perfect set up for capturing lightning. The first shot actually hit in the field in front of me. Its the bolt just off camera to the right. Both cameras missed it as it between the filed of view. Both were aimed in the same direction Way to close..!! Prints available.!!

Falling Again...


Recent stop at High Falls State Park near Jackson, Ga. Water level was perfect and not a cloud in the sky. Have always used Canon products and not going to get into a discussion with "Nikonians" of which is better.
Both are awesome pieces of equipment. I purchased my first Canon from Wally World back in late 90s (film) and progressed up the food chain as finances allowed and they haven't allowed to much progressing for a great while. Curious of what I use? Old girls consist of a Rebel Xsi and a 40D. Lens are about the same age and this shoot was to see if they could what I needed for future work. They can. Makes edit work much easier when you have a "base" shot to work with.

Welcome....

Welcome to my small section of the web. In the future look here to see my latest work and items of interest concerning the world of photography. In my opinion photography is about the photographer. While we all love our cameras, gadgets and lenses, a camera doesn't take a great picture no more than a typewriter writes a great novel. If you understand this comparison you are way ahead of the hordes of people who are into photography dreaming of untold wealth. Let this passion be your guide...
