This weekend is the first of three shows for the month of July. You can check the dates and location of my shows on the right side of the page. I have some new framed images and plaques I am excited about showing. I recently returned from a trip with my wife to the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia. One of my favorite locations to shoot a sunrise is a simple pull off the road location. I was disappointed when we drove by this spot and saw it was under construction. I told my wife that I could get there at 5:30 AM before the construction crew arrived. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and saw the workers already at work. I talked to the construction foreman and he allowed me to pull my car into their area so I could photograph. As I waited for the sun to peak over the mountains my attention shifted to what was happening 3000 feet below where I was standing. A beautiful layer of fog rising from the valley. I have been to this area a half dozen times but I have never seen this.
Another image I will be showing for the first time is this image of The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame taken from Voinivich Park. I wanted something different from the traditional shots taken from here. I knew that sunrise would present a golden glow on the Hall so I arrived around 5:30 AM. I could see the glow developing but it also appeared on the Great Lake Science Museum. I quickly changed my lens and location to get this shot:
Those of you that have seen my images know I love foggy areas. There is a marsh in Hudson Ohio I have always wanted to photograph. May and June offered some intriguing early morning shots. I took hundreds of shots from the area but wasn't happy until one morning late in June this presented itself...
I was overwhelmed with the results of this. I do all of my own printing, but for this image I had a Giclee print made. It is a fabulous print if a do say so myself.
I hope you are able to stop by this weekend or if not one of the other shows of the summer.
