Road Trip – Florida’s Forgotten Highways

It appears that today is fine art catch-up day for Deremer Studios.  This post features a pair of road trips I recently took in conjuntion with shoots.

Back in August, I went out to Destin for a wedding and the next morning, took a day trip along the forgotten roads of Florida.  I stayed overnight in Chattahoochee, FL along the old, venerable US Route 90.  Before the interstate came through in the 1960’s, this was the main road from the Atlantic coast of Florida to the border with Alabama.  It wound through little towns, big cities, and along miles of rural countryside.  There were thriving business, service stations and motels lining the roads from Jacksonville to Alabama.  But that wasn’t to last.  Today, the road is lined with dilapidated and collapsed shells – the only reminder for what once was there – well, except for this restored service station (below) about 10 miles west of Tallahassee.

The other road trip was up to Amelia Island on a pre-sunrise road trip up to a shoot at the Ritz-Carlton.  I always enjoy driving along Heckscher Dr – a 30 mile stretch of road winding along the marshlands, coastal forests, and atop 9 bridges.  Not only was there a gorgeous sunrise, but also a great reward at the end of the drive – a pair of Audi R8s (the V8 version is below).

Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!

Photo of the Day: Out of the Sunset!

Above is a composite photo I took recently while out in Destin for a wedding.  The aircraft are both old rotary-powered T-6 Texans  – there were several out that evening practicing maneuvers and formation flying from the nearby air force base.   Together with the amazing sunset silhouetting the aircraft, it made for some great photography conditions.  Unfortunately, the planes never quite got in the same frame as the sunset, so I took two photos from roughly the same time and combined them into this one image.  Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!

Photo of the Day: It’s A Bird, A Plane, A Dolphine!

Another day – another photo.  This weekend we were pretty much jam-packed with shoots, but there was still just enough time to snap some really great little scenes here and there.  The photo above is of a Coast Guard Dolphine helicopter and power boat drilling in the St. Johns River near Green Cove Springs – taken during a bit of down time on Friday.  Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: Up, Up, Up and Away!

Here’s the latest edition of our infamous photo of the day!  This photo was taken a few years ago in Jacksonville, FL, overlooking the lagoon at Huguenot Park.  As the sun set, it provided the perfect back lighting for this amazing columnar thunder cloud.  Cap that off with the sliver of the moon, and the great colors, and I just couldn’t help but stop and take a few photos.  Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: Look Out Below!!!

So, it seems this photo of the day thing is becoming more common…

Above is a photo I snapped while headed back from a commercial shoot is South Florida.  Part of the shoot was out in the Everglades, so we decided to take Rt 27 North to Lake Okeechobee.  On the way out from the lake, I saw this plane diving down toward the road at an alarming angle.  Thankfully, I recognized the body style as a crop duster, so I didn’t have a heart attack, crash, burn and die.

Instead, I pulled over, and started snapping away as the plane did a circling pattern over our heads.  Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: Reflections of Sunset

For those of you in the Jacksonville area, you know today was a dreary, dark and rainy mess of a weekend.  Well, today we had scheduled an engagement shoot for Andres (one of our photographers) and his bride-to-be, Carla.  Things were not looking good about an hour before the shoot, but there was this little window of clear sky that looked like it just might show up at the right time.

When we arrived at our first location and the rain was still coming down, I was beginning to question my judgement, but like magic, we started snapping and the dreary sky gave way to a hint of sun.  By the time our shoot was over, the layers of cloud made for one of the more stunning sunsets I have seen in the past few years.

And, if you were wondering, here’s one of the photos of our happy couple from tonight!

As always, you can download this image as a desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: FireSky

I don’t frequently post photos of the day – in fact, this is my first – but I thought you all would enjoy this shot.  Last night, while driving west toward home from a shoot, I watched as the sun slipped between two layers of clouds and began to paint beautiful colors all over the sky.  It was one of those sunsets where literally the entire sky was ablaze with reds, oranges and yellows.  By the time I got home, things were fading a bit, but I was still able to grab this photo.  As always, you can download this image as a desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!

Freebie! HD Storm Wallpaper

The last week has proven rather stormy around the First Coast.  After checking out the radar last night, I decided to take a drive out to the ocean near Huguenot Park.  I took most of these photos along the way.  I did some traffic time exposures in and out of the car as well.  All images are 1920×1080 – perfect for HD desktop wallpaper!

(Please note, in-car photos were captured using a tripod and remote in a safety-conscious manner by a professional – don’t try this at home – or on the road… The same goes for standing outside near thunderstorms.)
