This selection of photos is from the Virginia portion of our trip. As is usually the custom when we visit western Virginia – I’ll get up for a sunrise shoot, winding along the back country roads in search of the perfect spot to catch the sun as it peeks over the ridge. Above is what I stumbled upon this time – just outside the community of Chilhowie, VA.
Time Lapse video of clouds sweeping along White Top Mountain – 3 second interval.
While I absolutely love the rocky coasts of New England and the rustic charm of Central PA, One of my favorite places on this globe has to be White Top Mountain. Every time we’re in Virginia, I take a solo trip up the mountain – driving up the windy gravel road to the beuatiful summit of this rock. White Top boasts the only natural highland meadow in all of the South and usually provides breathtaking vistas of the valley below and row upon row of mountains beyond. A thick but swift moving cloud layer is what I found this year! Here are a few of my favorite shots. Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!
We recently had the opportunity to spend time with our friends at Bendix for their 2012 Fleet Council event, hosted at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. For a guy that loves big engines, fat tires and innovative technology – this was a pretty sweet shoot! We spent three days with Bendix and captured a wide variety of shots as you can see below.
Part of this project was the production of a slideshow-style video for the client. In this case, we didn’t stop at just pictures, but filmed a variety of short video clips of the different systems in operation, as well as this cool tilt-shift time lapse you see here:

As you may have heard, last night the main span of the Memorial Bridge (Portsmouth, NH) was floated out – severing the 89 year connection the bridge made between New Hampshire and Maine. As a tribute, I put together the video below. It incorporates a few of our images, but even better than that, I put together a multiple-camera HD time lapse video from the webcam photos of PortsmouthWebcam.com. Being 1,200 or so miles from Portsmouth, it was a real blessing to be able to watch the bridges final hours. Many kudos to the folks that put these webcams together!
The video finishes with vintage footage and a few vintage stills from news reels back in the 1920s that feature the construction and opening day for the bridge. If you would like to read more about this great bridge and see more photos of its inauguration, check out SeacoastNH.com.
So, this year I decided to do something unique – a time lapse video (consisting of -5 second time exposures to give the blur) of our family transforming our living room into a Christmas Wonderland of sorts. Above is a tiny snippet of the 2 minute video.
