I grew up on Bob Ross. Streams. Mountains. Happy little trees. And while I never could paint, I’m fortunate to have found the medium of photography to capture our world in my own way. Under impressive cumulus clouds and an afternoon of time to kill, Jonathan Carr and I ventured out to Ballanger Creek Tick […]
Tonight was a tease. All signs pointed toward a top notch sunset: rolling storm clouds, a clearing westward cloud deck, and even some small rainbows dancing about the horizon. The ground and houses were awash in a fierce golden light and the anticipation was on. Heh. So much for that. A last minute wall of […]
My buddy Jon and I had some time to kill and set out for some photo-exploring. Initially targeting the Barnegat Lighthouse, we made way to Long Beach Island and turned north.

After a bit of research—and some savings—I figured out everything I’d need to get a filter mounted […]
Yesterday photography happened by dawn, dusk, and night. By the time the evening rolled around my friends and I were hoping to head into the Pinelands for some astrophotography at Bodine Field. By the time it came time to head out a quick look skyward to us all we needed to know—we were clouded out. […]
