Hurricane Dorian – A Beautiful Fury

Fine Art Photographs of Hurricane Dorian’s Glancing Impact on Florida’s First Coast

Hurricane Dorian - Jacksonville Beach Pier Waves

I don’t have to tell you, Hurricanes are a fierce force of nature – and Hurricane Dorian has proven to be one of the fiercest Atlantic storms since records began. The utter destruction and climbing death toll left in the wake of the storm’s lingering 185mph sustained winds over the Bahamas is just starting to be known, and our heart goes out to those on the islands, and the countless families awaiting news about their loved ones. Yet despite all of the horror, there is even in such darkness a beauty in the storm – an eerie, sober sort of melancholy beauty – but beauty all the same.

The Electric Sunset

Sun, Rain and a Hearty Helping of Lightning along Jacksonville’s Scenic A1A

The Electric Sunset - A Dramatic Thunderstorm Sweeps Down the Coast at Dusk

Rumor had it that a very rare unicorn-level car, the 10 million dollar Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR, was headed our way as part of the Gold Rush Rally that we posted about earlier today. So, after finishing up photos at the Ritz-Carlton, we headed south on A1A, to the spot where we had begun our afternoon. We never did get to see the car, but what we did get to see was just as amazing.

It Rained and Poured for 40 Minutes, Minutes!

I’ll Have a Dames Point with a Pinch of Weather

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had some wild weather down in the Southeast.  Most afternoons here, the storms build, creating these really beautiful formations of rain-laden clouds that tower into the stratosphere.  And this is the kind of weather, though a bit of a gamble, that can yield amazing sunset imagery.

So, I’ve been working on a side project recently to capture the Dames Point Bridge (Jacksonville, FL) from a unique angle.  With such pretty weather, I’ve spent a few nights along the marsh, photographing the bridge as the day gives way to night.  Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.   Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!

Tropical Storm Beryl – DS National Coverage!

It turns out it was worth our effort to plug in our computers, boot them back up, edit and post video from Tropical Storm Beryl to our blog and on YouTube while the storm was still raging outside.  As providence would have it, Good Morning America, the Weather Channel, ABC News, and our local station, WJXT all picked up our footage.  It’s not often our logo gets placed in front of 5+ million people for free.  Granted, the clips were only two or three seconds, but it was still pretty cool!  Big thanks to all the networks who featured our video!

If you missed the video the first time, below is our footage of the storm, complete with blowing transformers, wet rain and windy wind!  Feel free to check out our other Beryl blog posts for free HD desktop wallpaper as well!

Enjoy!
