Photographing the Stricken Golden Ray along the Beautiful Georgia Coast
When my good friend, Ed, called me up out of the blue on Tuesday morning, I knew I was in for an adventure. On our last photo excursion, we enjoyed being eaten alive by gnats, nearly being swallowed by a waterspout, and being deluged by a pop-up thunderstorm. Yet, when Ed asked if I’d like to photograph the Golden Ray, which had capsized in the mouth of Saint Simons Sound a few days earlier, I couldn’t refuse. Thankfully, this adventure was far less eventful, though every bit as interesting as our last excursion.
Exploring the Winding Shores and Skies of Central Georgia’s Lake Oconee
One of the many perks of being a commercial photographer is the opportunity to experience and explore some of the most beautiful parts of the world as you travel in the service of your clients. One such happy surprise was a recent trip to Lake Oconee, in central Georgia – a location that I didn’t even know existed just a few months ago. As providence would have it, we were treated to a stunning, gold-infused sunrise accented by wisps of fog still lingering from the cool pre-dawn twilight.
