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.

Tropical Storm Beryl – Part 2: The Morning After


Unless I am severely mistaken, we made it through the storm in one piece.  This morning, I took to the roads before sunrise to see what Beryl had left us.  All in all, it was better than I expected with lots of little debris in the road, but only a few trees down.  Tragically, a port-a-potty was not so lucky – having it’s roof ripped off sometime in the night…  But despite the relative tranquility, I still managed to take a few photos here and there.

Here are the rest of the photos – including a reminder that not everyone has Memorial Day off, and a little reptilian friend I found on my journeys this morning. And lest I forget – it is with a somber heart that we at Deremer Studios remember all those who have given that last full measure of devotion to protect what we hold dear.  You are not forgotten!  Enjoy!

Freebie HD Wallpaper – New England Winter Part 1: Nubble

We recently spent some time up in New England visiting family and doing fine art photography.  For the next several days, I’ll be uploading selections from our shoot – each day with a specific theme.

Today’s theme is Nubble Light, in York, ME.  The day of this shoot, the weather was pretty intense!  Though the temperatures were relatively mild for the winter months (about 40F), the wind was brutal – gusting up to 40kts or so pretty regularly.  But this combination of wind and big waves from a front that had just went through made for some great photo opportunities.  Here are a few of our favorites.  Enjoy!
