Puck, the American Kestrel

Puck the American Kestrel (1 of 1)

I normally do not like to photograph captive animals, but with how wary raptors are, I would probably never get a chance to get this close to one. At the Carolina Raptor Center, once in Spring and Fall, you have a chance to photograph these birds outside of their enclosures.

 

Puck, is an American Kestrel and one of the most colorful of the raptors there. Thanks little guy for posing for me!

High Water

Linville Falls 1 (1 of 1)

 

One of my favorite things about visiting Linville Falls is how water flow changes how it looks. After a rain, the water flow was flowing over the rocks that were normally dry. This provided a chance to make a unique image.

Thanks Burke County Arts Council for the photography contest and for picking up 2nd place in the Nature Category for "Fire on the Mountain". This was taken in November 2013 as the Table Rock Wildfire raged in the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area. 

Thanks for hosting the show and selecting four of my images to be displayed at the gallery.

 

Thanks,

Front Porch Fireworks

Front Porch Fireworks

 

It has been awhile since I have had the chance to photograph a good lightning storm. My chance came a few nights ago when we had an almost stationary storm sit South of me to around 2 hours. It provided a wonderful opportunity to do some long exposures.

 

Not bad for a nice evening on the front porch.

A Day In The Life of A Gorge Photographer

 

I have been busy experimenting with Time-Lapse Photography as of late. I added a Motion Controller and have been having a blast playing around with this new, to me, medium. 

 

I hope you enjoy!
