July Update

I can’t believe Summer is halfway over!  I was thinking it had been weeks since I blogged, but when I checked it was just a little over a week.  I have been really busy with the Road Runner Meetup Group the last couple of weeks and time is just flying by.  Last weekend we held a Meetup at Spruce Knob West Virginia to shoot Star Trails, but mother nature did not fully cooperate.  We had thunder storms right around sunset and had to take cover for about an hour or so.  Then we were treated to nice clear skies for about an hour or so until more clouds rolled in.   

The good news is I was able to get time this weekend to work on some favorite techniques like Light Painting and Motion Blurs.   

Next up we have a tour in Iceland with a private group.  Iceland is a landscape photographers dream and I’m super excited!   We are returning to Iceland in 2015 and it's not to early to sign up!

Kenilworth Gardens Meetup

Yesterday morning we had a fantastic Meetup at Kenilworth Gardens!  It was nice to see old and new friends alike.  We maintain a fairly active Meetup Group here in the DC area and if you don't belong I would encourage you to check us out.

Independence Day

Today we celebrate our independence and I thought it only appropriate to dig into my archives and find a suitable photo.  Taken earlier this year during one of my tours at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, it celebrates my love of country and urban exploration photography! 

I will be leading the photography tour at the Asylum in September.  If you have never been, I suggest you sign up because we always have a great time!

We finished our second tour of the Palouse a couple weeks ago and it was a great time. I'm just getting started on reviewing some images due to a mishap involving transition from a smaller Synology Network Storage to a larger faster one.  

Here is one of my favorite images that overlaps 2 different sheds.
