Rising Steam

Fri Jan 27, 2017

Pickwick Lake is a beautiful place, especially at sunrise. I woke up pre-sunrise from our campsite and walked about 50 yards down a hill to take this photo. The steam was in full effect on this chilly morning.

Steamy Lake

Wed Apr 6, 2016

Last September we went camping for a night and day at Pickwick Lake up in the very Northeastern corner of the state. This was at sunrise right down the hill from our campsite and this steam was rising off of the lake, so I ran and got my camera to take a few photos. Pickwick is such a beautiful lake as well as the area around it. After this photo, I did lots of boat riding with a friend. Fun times!

Another Pickwick Sunset

Wed Nov 25, 2015

Here is another nice photo I caught at sunset at Pickwick. The colors were awesome that day and looked great reflecting off of the water. It was a peaceful scene and I look forwarding to visiting Pickwick again. The cool part about this photo is that we slept in a tent about 200 yards away from this spot so the scenery was spectacular all around us.

Steamy Lake - Pickwick

Wed Nov 18, 2015

I really enjoyed spending a couple of days at Pickwick as I had never been there before. I took advantage of camping right by the lake by getting up at sunrise to take some photos. The steam was really heavy on the lake that morning which made it perfect for a good photo opp. I played around with some foreground objects and this was one of the results. I didn't particularly like this photo at first, but after self-discovering some new editing in Light Room I came back to it and ended up loving it. I have been playing with some more dramatic coloring with darker exposures and some blue-ish tint, so over the next week or so you will probably see a good bit of that. I'm calling it my "Blue Period". Let me know what you think.

Morning Mist - Pickwick Lake

Sun Oct 4, 2015

It was so great to wake up and litterally walk about 20 feet to see this scene on a very cool morning at Pickwick. I would spend this whole day out on that water though it warmed up quite a bit as the day went on. I usually prefer for there to be some clouds when I shoot the sunrise but the colors on this morning were spectacular, especially reflecting off of the water.

Morning Campfire - Pickwick Lake

Thu Oct 1, 2015

It's that time of year again when the weather starts to get cool enough to start lighting fires. This was the campfire from our camping trip at Pickwick Lake near Iuka. I love sitting by campfires and getting warm and just staring at it and having good conversations with friends around it. Good times.

Sunrise Over the Lake - Pickwick

Fri Sep 18, 2015

I awoke early on this morning to capture this awesome sunrise over Pickwick Lake. I scouted out this area the night before since it was just down a hill from where our campsite was, so it was easy and quick to get to, which was great since it meant I didn't have to get up as early. I got there before the sun came over the horizon and waited for the right moment. It casted a great long shadow from the tree stump in front of me and the golden glow was just perfect. 

It's so frustrating sometimes that the greatest moments to take a photograph during the day are also the shortest windows of time, but, man, for that short time you have to see it, it can be so breathtaking and peaceful. It seems to me that if it lasted a long time you might get to used to it and take it for granted, but instead it is a fleeting moment that makes you long for the next one. What a beautiful moment it was.

Pickwick Sunset - Iuka

Tue Sep 15, 2015

When I arrived at J.P. Coleman State Park on Pickwick Lake I went around investigating and I found this nice spot looking out across the lake with the sun reflecting beautifully off of these clouds coming up over the trees. It was a nice moment to capture. Pickwick is a beautiful place that I highly recommend visiting if you haven't been there yet. This was my first trip and I got to experience it through camping (yes in an actual tent) on a nice and cool weekend.

Movie Under the Stars - Iuka

Mon Sep 14, 2015

How awesome is it that Drive In movies still exist? Unfortunately they faded away before I was old enough to enjoy them, but fortunately I have been able to attend two of them, with the second time being while I took this photo. We spent Saturday night and Sunday camping at J.P. Coleman state park and drove to nearby Iuka to catch the movie under the stars. It was nice and cool so we sat outside of our cars with the speakers blaring. It was a beautiful weekend to be outside at Pickwick.
