Blue Ridge Parkway

I have been lazy lately and neglected my posting. I still have a bunch of images from our trip to Asheville last month that I want to process and post and I will get to it eventually I promise. Here is a shot of the mountains from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Day 33: Morning Run

I took this photo with my cell phone while out on my morning run. The weather was perfect and I ended up running 9 miles. I finished the run in 74 minutes with an average pace of 8:18 per mile. Not bad for someone who until a month ago hadn’t run in at least a year. I am looking forward to my first half marathon in September.

Now off to get some food with Nancy, my brother Ethan and family friend Scott. Later we will be kayaking/canoeing with the dogs. Gonna be a hot one today!

Beautiful Sunrise this morning. Tried to get a bit artsy with the shot.

Day 21: Stormy Weather

“After a storm comes a calm”

-Matthew Henry

Yesterday we had some pretty crazy weather and so did many other folks on the east coast. Some areas received snow while we endured some crazy thunderstorms. At one point in the afternoon Nancy informed me that she was seeing quarter sized hail where she works.

When I left my office for the day there were rivers all over the place that shouldn’t have been there. It was also unseasonably cool. Anyway I love crazy weather like that…except for the hail. Here is an image from yesterday afternoon when the weather began to clear up.

On different note, the neighborhood Hawk was back this morning. I still can’t get close enough to take a decent photo. He sees everything but here is my best attempt from this morning.

Today was the third and final day of the quote challenge. I appreciate Tippy Tales challenging me and I propose that SATechs and The Nighthawk Project complete the same challenge.

Have a great weekend!

Cape Fear Memorial Bridge in Monochrome

The weather was awesome this past weekend so I decided to go to Wilmington North Carolina to walk around and snap some photos. It is about an hour away from where we live and it is very photogenic, has plenty of excellent places to eat and to top if off they were having a St. Paddy’s festival.

Well it turned out that the festival was rather small and that I am not that great at street photography. I guess that means I just have en excuse to practice more. So the trip was kind of a bust. I did get some delicious ice cream from a place called Kilwins. Some of the best ice cream ever. I was introduced to it while living in Maryland and am glad they have one in Wilmington. I also had a delicious steak at The George which is a nice restaurant right on the river that is dog friendly (just so you know). However dinner made me miss Nancy because I was eating alone which I have not done at a real restaurant in a long long time. The view and weather and a pint of Guinness however, aided in lifting my spirits.

I do have one photo that I decided might be worth sharing. It is of the Cape Fear River Bridge. I used the in camera HDR function that the 7d mkii has because I was curious and am still learning all the features it has compared to my old SLR. Generally I am not a big fan of HDR but after some quick editing and changing to black and white I thought it wasn’t too bad. Let me know what you think and as always thanks for stopping by.

Oh and next time I will take Oshie and do a little Golden Wilmington Portrait session ha-ha.
