Farewell 2008

A lot has happened in the last year. We had a great summer with a trip to Florida, the Outer Banks and then to WV. One of my favorites of the year was the trip to WV. To close the year out, I have an image from Blackwater Falls. Jenn, my mother and father-in-law Bill & Cindy all climbed our way down to the lower falls of Elakala. This was one of those where there wasn’t a trail to follow. We had to hang onto limbs and rocks and whatever we could to keep from falling further down. It was quite an experience for all of us.Happy New Year to everyone!

Douglas Falls

This place wasn’t easy to find. A fellow photographer mentioned to me that it was nearby Blackwater Falls State Park. On the way out from our vacation, Jenn & I decided to see if we could find it. After doing some reading, we figured we had a pretty good idea. Anyone who has been there can relate to how difficult it was to get too. If you haven’t been there, I wont bother trying to explain it. Just take my word for it…

Winter colors…

Another quick shot from recent weeks. Driving home from Jenn’s parents and stopping off here and there while the sun was setting. The light was changing very quickly making it difficult to find a good location. I grabbed a few while I could. Thankfully the wife is patient, so long as I don’t spend 2 hours while she is waiting in the car…

Family photo…

Have been playing around with spicing up the portraits a bit. This is the “Rock Band Grunge Look”. Something we could use on an album cover is we ever had such a thing…
