I was driving home when I saw the colors in the sunset peering through the trees.  I pulled into a Church Parking lot and took this photo with my Droid 2.  With the advent of cameras in cellphones, it is easy to have a camera with you at all times to capture those special moments and be able to share them.

I took this photo on the beach at Botany Bay, South Carolina during the a sunrise.  My favorite time is early in the morning just before sunrise, watching the sky and wondering what kind of a sunrise I will see.

When the weather starts getting cool at night, you will often see fog on the lake in the mornings. The sun was just starting to come up when I took this photo on Lake Murray in South Carolina.

The Charlotte chapter of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association volunteers a couple of times a year to help the folks at Tiger World. We helped with painting and raking leaves.  After all the work is done they treat us to a tour of Tiger World so that we can get some special photos.  They brought out their new baby Snow Monkey for us to see, she was so cute!

I was up on the Blue Ridge Parkway when the colors near Grandfather Mountain were at peak color. This is a 3 exposure HDR photo of a stream near Grandfather Mountain just off the parkway.

I was up early to photograph the sunrise at the Folly Beach Pier. The sky didn’t cooperate for a colorful sunrise, but there was some nice golden light in the morning. Here is the photo I took of the Folly Beach Pier in Folly Beach, SC. This is a 5i HDR photo.

I went on a road trip with a friend to the foothills  in South Carolina to check out the fall colors. This year the Fall colors have been very spotty.  I did find some nice colors around Pinacle Lake in Table Rock State Park.

I was up on the Blue Ridge Parkway looking for fall colors. Here is a photo I took in the Blowing Rock, NC area off the parkway on a gravel road in the area. The recent rains had caused a lot of the leaves to start falling, but there was still a lot of color to be found in the area.

I love visiting lighthouses. There are so many different ones with different patterns and colors. One of my favorite places to visit is Hunting Island, SC.  I was on a photo outing with some friends and we decided to walk up the stairs to the observation deck. What a view!

There a public park in Blowing Rock that has a really nice lake called Bass Lake.  If  you visit in the summer, you will find some beautiful water lilies blooming on the lake.
