Stone Cold Light

After the recent storms calmed down, approaching the new moon’s lower tideline, I scampered down to see what was left of the beaches – a surprising amount for all the hubbub. The afternoon sun lent well to some high-contrast images as I continue to tweak my color channels during black and white conversion.

End of July on the Ocean

The height of summer mid-day in the pine dunes evokes drab colors and high contrast images. The digital grain adds some grit back to the elemental qualities. Although jovial, even the slice of a dolphin fin cuts and slashes. Light becomes dark, almost infrared. This is the end of July.

Winter Weather

Normally white balance is a challenge shooting winter weather weather and landscapes. But, I embrace the casts and hues on the sensor because my eye sees them too. Here is about 6″ of powder in the woods with indigo and golden natural filters.

Road Trip

For Mother’s Day, my mum and I took a road trip to visit some family. I did bring my dSLR along, but snapping these images with my smart phone captured the pace of the trip much better. It was a quick trip, but still enough time for this photo journal:

Cape Henlopen – Tidal Patterns

The bay side of the park always reveals beautiful patterns with the changing tides. This day, the overcast skies helped diffuse the mid-day sun and really highlight these patterns.

As always, you can get an 8×10 $20, 11×14 $45, but also available in custom sizes like the square crops I post here! Please post a comment or send me an e-mail if you would like prints. I appreciate your continued support as an artist!
