Cross at Sunset

Sun Feb 7, 2016

As I was riding around after already taking a few sunset photos I passed this cross in West Point and I knew it would make a nice photo against the lingering light from the sunset, so I stopped and snapped a couple of photos. In fact the cross was slightly lit by the headlights of my car.

Purple Lake 2

Mon Feb 1, 2016

Here is another photo from Waverly Waters looking a little more to the left of this photo that I took the during the same sunset and posted last week. It was harder to get a bad shot of that sunset than a good one. It was so beautiful and full of color and the lake was so calm, casting a perfect reflection.

Sunset Over a Field

Sat Jan 30, 2016

This shot is under the windmill on Hwy. 50 near West Point, looking toward West Point. I have photographed this windmill many times, but I wanted to give a different perspective this time. I like the way the sun was shining through the stuff that's growing up around the windmill. Sometimes it good to get a little closer and see what else is there.

Here is another shot from Waverly Waters. It was such a beautiful sunset and so full of colors. I wish it would've lasted longer, but I guess we wouldn't appreciate sunsets like this so much if we saw them all the time. I was fortunate to be out shooting when it happened. Hoping for many many more.

Sunday evening I went to capture the sunset, since shooting sunsets for me has been few and far between lately (life gets busy sometimes). I intended to go out to Tibbee to get some shots as I had been out there the day before shooting a senior photo session for me and my wife's LifePhotography project and saw some potential HDR shots. However, on my way to Tibbee I found that the road was flooded so I had to change my direction and just go searching for a spot with sunset drawing ever nearer. I ended up here, at Waverly Waters and man was the situation perfect for some great sunset shots. The sky was as colorful as I had seen it in a long time and the lake was so still, casting a perfect reflection. In fact I flipped this photo upside down and if it weren't for the cinder blocks on the right you wouldn't be able to tell which side was the real life and which was the reflection. I go out and shoot so often hoping to get shots like this, but the conditions are rarely this perfect.

Sunset Street

Here is a nice sunset in downtown West Point, which is my hometown and where I recently moved back to. In fact, I live within walking distance of this spot. We bought a 100 year old house right smack in downtown West Point, which we absolutely love! It's very quiet around this area, especially in the evenings. And with a beautiful downtown to photograph, I can simply walk out of my front door and get shots like this literally one block away. Small town life in Mississippi can be pretty awesome.

Cabin Over the Water

It's nice to know people with beautiful land. Took this in someone's backyard west of West Point. Beautiful lake, nice sunset, a few clouds, and a red cabin. How could I not get a good shot.

Home for Christmas

Fri Dec 25, 2015

So my travel around the state has been hindered as of late because my wife and I finally, after 13 years of marriage, bought our first home in our hometown of West Point. Downtown West Point to be more exact and we absolutely love it. It's a 100 year old house that is in great shape and move in ready, though I have spent much of the first two weeks painting some rooms. Moving in so close to Christmas, we were in doubt as to whether we would be able to get our tree up, but thankfully we did and with the paint color my wife chose for our living room, it looks fantastic, especially with the old mantle in the background. 

I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas with family and other loved ones and that the rest of your year will be blessed with happiness.
