Something about Shrimp Boats

There is something about photographing shrimp boats that never gets old to me.  While boats continue to modernize, they seem to maintain the traditional look they have had since the beginning.   This image was captured on a glassy day on Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC. just at dusk.  Still, water always makes for a great reflection and the color has a feel of an Indian Summer which makes this image different than others I have captured over the years.

Exploring the creeks of the Charleston Lowcountry

DJI_0054-EditI recently shared a photo (that I will share here) named”The Art of Nature”.    I call it natural art because when flying over the green marsh and creeks of the Charleston Lowcountry you see the beautiful shapes created in the creeks that zig zag throughout creating in what my opinion could be an artist painting an abstract.   It is an adventure to explore and be able to see what we can’t realize when visualizing from the ground.  Here are a few photos I have taken over the last couple of weeks that display just what I am talking about.

Bridge Run Week

It’s that time of the year again for the Cooper River Bridge Run.  It’s also that time of the year that I will be staying as far away from the traffic as I can.   With that said, what better time to post a beautiful aerial shot of the bridge just days before 80,000 + runners will cross it in hopes of beating the Kenyans.  Good luck to all the racers!

Spring day on the Beach

7B1A1906-Edit-EditYesterday was about as nice a day as you will find.  It was tempting to sit around and watch the NCAA tourney games, which I caught some of, but when its 75 with blue skies and the beach is a five-minute it just wasn’t an option.  I could easily chalk it up as Sunday Funday but I won’t since I can’t stand that saying.

Anway,  I grabbed my gear (camera, drone, cell phone) and headed out the door for Sullivan’s Island.  While most people were carrying lawn chairs and coolers out to the beach, I was dragging around camera gear.  I am sure I looked like a dork. The day started with a walk down the beach grabbing some pics with my Canon from my favorite spot, Station 18, and then heading over to the Fort Moultrie Historic Center to fly my drone.

After I was satisfied with all I jumped in the car and headed home to watch the South Carolina Gamecocks reach their first ever Final Four and then walked outside to look for flying pigs, if you know what I mean.

Photo of the Day – Colonial Lake

One of the great spots in Charleton tourist rarely see is Colonial Lake.  The park recently underwent a $5.9 million dollar refresh making it even more spectacular than before.  My favorite time of the day to visit the park is in the early morning or in the evening as the sun sets.  In the evening the sun shines on the homes along Rutledge Ave. casting a golden glow on the front steps of each home.  A long walkway circles the lake making a great spot to get out and walk, jog or just people watch. I have shot Colonial Lake several times before but thought I would take on a different perspective and capture it with my DJI Phantom 4 Pro.

Colonial Lake is located in Harleston Village of downtown Charleston, SC.  Feel free to contact me for information regarding homes for sale in the area or to discuss the local real estate market.
