Dawn Over Silent Cannon

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

This is another one from Antietam Battlefield. Was on the field near the visitor’s center with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and the sun just starting to rise. This is another example of an image that was meant for HDR that just wasn’t going to work. HDR just creates too many variables into the image that make it difficult to get a solid, finish image. There are little things that drive me nuts with objects not aligning. Weird…

Follow The Line To Where It Leads

Follow The Line To Where It Leads

I shot this at Antietam Battlefield last year. I was walking along one of the many roads that go through the park and saw this and figured why not take a photo. This image was meant for HDR but when I ran it through the initial conversion using Aurora it just looked awful. I did a quick edit just to see what I wasn’t happy with it at all. I just moved back to Lightroom and reverted to my usual…

SR-71 Blackbird

SR-71 Blackbird

If I had a hero shot I wanted it was a photo of the SR-71. I have shot it before but I never really bothered much with it until one day I saw this photo by Trey Ratcliff. It was then I had a holy hell that’s cool moment. This SR-71 is at the Udvar-Hazy Center which is apart of the Smithsonian. It’s pretty much the first thing that smacks you in the face as you walk into the hangers…

Space Shuttle Discovery

Space Shuttle Discovery

Took at trip to the Udvar-Hazy Center which is apart of the Smithsonian. Went for a specific shot in mind but I figured when I was there why not photograph the Discovery. This is a bit of a departure from my normal work. I went and shot this documentary style. Giving different angles and views of the same subject. I hope it conveys the sheer size of the shuttle. You just don’t realize how big it is until you see…

Where Blue Meets Green

Where Blue Meets Green

This one is from when I went to Manassas Battlefield one early morning to do some photography there. I really like doing early morning and evening shots. I just don’t wake up early enough to do the morning ones that often. Night shots I’m tired after working so I don’t do that many of them except on weekends. This photo is of the battlefield itself. One of the interesting things I noticed on the battlefields I have visited is that…

The Lone Tower

The Lone Tower

I took this image when I went to Luray Caverns for a bit of photographic fun. This is the view you see from the caverns entrance which looks more like a stripmall than a giant hole in the ground. When I took this I put on my Sigma 28-300 which I carry for such occasions. It’s not the world’s sharpest lens but it gets the job done when pressed into service. I was using a monopod which is not something…

Into The Mix

Into The Mix

I promised a water heavy week and I am delivering on the promise. This is another one from Great Falls. I took this image standing on a bridge that goes over a rocky ravine with a small channel running through it. If you have never shot on a bridge before you are in for a treat. Bridges move. Alot. You don’t really register it in a vehicle but standing on a bridge you will notice it quickly. Trying to time…

Rush of Water

Rush of Water

I promised a series yesterday since I just wasn’t in a position to post after an extremely long day at work. So I will deliver as promised. This series might be a bit abstract for some. I was shooting at Great Falls and I just was fascinated by the light on the white water areas. So I took the opportunity to photograph these while I was doing other landscape work. I knew it would be a bit more abstract than…

Where The Falls Begin

Where The Falls Begin

This is the first view of Great Falls you see from the Maryland side. You walk out to an overlook that allows you to see the river where it turns into the falls. This week may be heavy on the water theme. I’ll see how I feel when I load up the rest of the images I have edit. Having the luxury of sitting on a large back catalogue I can jump around with my images. My mother who reads…

The Back Road

The Back Road

I shot this while I was hiking around Antietam Battlefield. There was such a maze of roads and back roads throughout the park you never knew if you were on public land or private land. I’m sure the people who live there are used to people wandering around unsure. I was on the main trail just shooting down this road. I’ll be honest and say I’m not 100% sure about this image. It’s a bit bright. This is a byproduct…
