Elves in a Chair

Tue Dec 20, 2016

I went exploring in downtown West Point to take some photos of the decorations downtown and I really liked the display window at The Bink Salon. I've been searching out some interesting Christmas decorations to show on my blog and think this was a perfect fit.

Our Tree

Mon Dec 19, 2016

This is our Christmas Tree. We moved into our new house last December and the first room we painted was our living room which you see in the photo. My wife chose a dark teal color for the room which I wasn't sure about at first when she mentioned it, but it turned out great and the best part about it is that it compliments are Christmas decorations very well. We love Christmast and decorating for it so it's a nice extra to have the perfect wall color for it. Merry Christmas!

Our Mantle

Sat Dec 17, 2016

Just over a year ago, my wife and I purchased our first home. It's an old 100 year old home in downtown West Point. We are very proud of our home and have loved living there. It has so much charm, as most old homes do. This mantle was actually added to the house in the 50's and was handmade in Macon, MS. My wife is a great decorator and we love going crazy with decorations during Christmas. So enjoy a little piece of our home.

Here is another photo from my sunrise photo shoot this past Saturday. It was a beautiful one for sure. This is out on Highway 50 E next to the Windmill, which I will post a photo of in the near future (One of many windmill photos). The colors were fantastic on this day.

Sunrise Ridin'

Mon Oct 17, 2016

I got up, kind of at the last minute, on Saturday morning to try to catch the sunrise, so I hopped in the Jeep and chased after it. I'm glad that I did, because it was a great sunrise, which has been few and far between lately. I actually arrived at this spot, just as the sun was peaking over the tree line.

Highway Tree

Tue Oct 11, 2016

I posted a photo of this tree a few days ago. I actually took a lot of photos of this tree that day and have taken lots of photos of this tree in the past. It's an awesome tree and one that always makes for a good photo. When you have an awesome sunset behind it, then it only adds to the greatness and on that day the sunset was spectacular! If you are a photographer and you happen to be on Highway 50 between West Point and Columbus then you should definitely get some shots of this tree.

On the Road Again

Fri Oct 7, 2016

This was a gorgeous sunset that I was able to capture this past weekend. Lately the sky has been so crystal clear that it's been hard to get a good sunst or sunrise. Clouds really do make all the difference in landscape photos. They help to reflect the sun's light and create all kinds of magnificent colors. Even in the middle of the afternoon you need clouds to create more interesting elements in a shot. Here's hoping for more sunset/sunrise clouds in the near future.

House By the Water

Thu Oct 6, 2016

Here is a beautiful sunset that I was able to capture the other evening. This is right off of the Tombigbee River in Clay County right off of Hwy. 50. There is a nice neighborhood that surrounds the channels that come off of the river. The water was nice and calm, creating a great reflection.

A Night in the Park

Wed Oct 5, 2016

I ride or walk by this spot quite often as it is very close to my house and I recently noticed this particular scene with the City Hall clock showing in the background over the park, so I decided that this would be a good photo so the next chance I got I walked over to it and set up for this shot. It turned out so peaceful and soothing (at least to me) and really showcases the feeling you get walking in or near this park at night or just after sunset. The bonus was that I caught the rays from the setting sun bursting over the horizon, adding a pink hue to the dark blue sky. The star bursts also turned out very clean with my aperture all the way down to f22.
