Marina Boats

Scipio Creek Marina Sunrise. This was shot at 35mm on the Canon EOS R at sunrise in Apalachicola, FL. I love the light and color of sunrise in this very peaceful setting.

 

Blue hour in Smokies

Blue Hour in the Smokies. This was shot at 105mm on the Canon R5, from Clingman’s Dome in the Smoky Mountains. It was about 25 degrees and windy. The textures and the colors tell me why it’s called “blue hour.”

 

Stone Mountain in fall

Stone Mountain in the fall is marvelous.
