Above is a composite photo I took recently while out in Destin for a wedding. The aircraft are both old rotary-powered T-6 Texans – there were several out that evening practicing maneuvers and formation flying from the nearby air force base. Together with the amazing sunset silhouetting the aircraft, it made for some great photography conditions. Unfortunately, the planes never quite got in the same frame as the sunset, so I took two photos from roughly the same time and combined them into this one image. Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!
Another day – another photo. This weekend we were pretty much jam-packed with shoots, but there was still just enough time to snap some really great little scenes here and there. The photo above is of a Coast Guard Dolphine helicopter and power boat drilling in the St. Johns River near Green Cove Springs – taken during a bit of down time on Friday. Enjoy!
Here’s the latest edition of our infamous photo of the day! This photo was taken a few years ago in Jacksonville, FL, overlooking the lagoon at Huguenot Park. As the sun set, it provided the perfect back lighting for this amazing columnar thunder cloud. Cap that off with the sliver of the moon, and the great colors, and I just couldn’t help but stop and take a few photos. Enjoy!
So, it seems this photo of the day thing is becoming more common…
Above is a photo I snapped while headed back from a commercial shoot is South Florida. Part of the shoot was out in the Everglades, so we decided to take Rt 27 North to Lake Okeechobee. On the way out from the lake, I saw this plane diving down toward the road at an alarming angle. Thankfully, I recognized the body style as a crop duster, so I didn’t have a heart attack, crash, burn and die.
Instead, I pulled over, and started snapping away as the plane did a circling pattern over our heads. Enjoy!
For those of you in the Jacksonville area, you know today was a dreary, dark and rainy mess of a weekend. Well, today we had scheduled an engagement shoot for Andres (one of our photographers) and his bride-to-be, Carla. Things were not looking good about an hour before the shoot, but there was this little window of clear sky that looked like it just might show up at the right time.
When we arrived at our first location and the rain was still coming down, I was beginning to question my judgement, but like magic, we started snapping and the dreary sky gave way to a hint of sun. By the time our shoot was over, the layers of cloud made for one of the more stunning sunsets I have seen in the past few years.
And, if you were wondering, here’s one of the photos of our happy couple from tonight!
As always, you can download this image as a desktop wallpaper. Enjoy!
