The Midnight Train

Last weekend Denise and I finished another fun photo tour in Cape May, NJ.  This year was our second in Cape May and we are already making plans for a return trip in 2015.  Whenever we do a photo tour we arrive anywhere from a couple to a few days ahead of the group so we can scout to make sure old favorites are still looking good and hopefully find some new locations. 

On my first night scouting I met up with good friend and Cape May resident Charles Ritter.  Charles has lived in Cape May for many years and knows all the best locations and even after a number of years he is still finding new locations.  It looked like sunset was going to be a bust so I suggested to Charles that we  do a little light painting instead.  Believe it or not there is an abandoned rail line deep within the town and these box cars seemed like a great subject for the effort.  

Speaking of light painting,  I will be teaching light painting at Nature Visions on November 15th.

Wild Wonderful Abstracts II

I just finished a quick edit on last weeks pictures from West Virginia.  We had a really great group of photographers and as usual West Virginia does not disappoint.  

I posted a few of my other pictures over on the Road Runner Blog.

Wild Wonderful Abstracts

Fall is in full swing in West Virginia and our tour starts tonight.  This week I have been scouting the back roads for hidden gems and found a little known waterfall that I hope we will be able to share with our group.

The image above is one of my motion abstracts.  It was taken on the road to Dolly Sods a couple of days ago.

I will be presenting a program on abstract photography at the following camera clubs this fall.  I hope that if any of the dates and locations are convenient you will come out and see the presentation.

October 20th -  Reston Camera Club
November 12th - McLean Camera Club
November 13th - Charlotte Camera Club
