I have shot many sunsets at Walt Disney World but every occasionally you will get on that is extra special. This was one of those occasions. The 2 days preceding the arrival of Hurricane Matthew were some of the most awesome sunsets I have witnessed at Walt Disney World. Each evening the sky came alive in [...]

Sunburst Gertie

This is one of those on the fly photos. I'm walking past Gertie on my way to Star Tours, I notice the sunburst, so I stop and fire off a couple quick shots. I like to go with some sort of tilt with Gertie shots as I feel like it works well with her shape. The [...]

Autumn in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

I decided to close out the week with another shot from my recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. This was taken along Newfound Gap Road approaching Newfound Gap from the Gatlinburg side at Morton Overlook. We arrived just in time for sunset and though the sun was behind the mountain on the left it create a [...]

Fall Blue Ridge Parkway Drive

I am taking a big detour for today's shot away from Walt Disney World and into the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. I have a deep love for this time of year when all the leaves start changing colors. Somehow, though I have never been able to visit the [...]

Peoplemover Castle

I usually don't bother too much with shooting while on the Transit Authority. It is my time to relax and take the weight off my shoulders (literally, my camera bag is incredibly heavy). I rarely ride at this time of day however so I figured I would take a couple shots and see how they turned [...]

A Magical Kingdom Day’s End

If there's one shot I never tire of taking or seeing it is the Cinderella Castle sunset shot. I have quite a few under my belt now but it is still one of the most exciting shots to take and to process. I absolutely love the process of this shot from beginning to end and always [...]

Dusk at Be Our Guest

By | 2016-06-29T08:11:13+00:00 June 29th, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Today's photo is the companion piece to yesterday's shot. It was taken immediately preceding the shot of the mine train. As this was taken shooting towards the sunset, the color is definitely more intense and there are more yellows on the horizon and in the clouds. It is interesting how even just 2-3 minutes later when [...]

Dusk on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Today and tomorrow's photo are going to be sort of a companion piece. This shot was taken just after the sun had mostly dipped below the horizon behind Be Our Guest. The sky was starting to turn dark blue but there were some gorgeous colors still appearing on the clouds. The sky was looking beautiful in [...]

I was wandering around shooting the sunset from various spots when this spot next to the Haunted Mansion caught my eye. The color was really popping behind Thunder Mountain. This was a spot I knew of but had never stopped to take a shot. I tried a few different versions of this shot, one being a [...]

Splash Mountain & the Setting Sun

By | 2016-06-23T08:38:48+00:00 June 23rd, 2016|Categories: Photography|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Today's shot is another favorite spot of mine, especially during sunset. I always seem to get some awesome glow as the sun sets behind Splash Mountain. I did do a few things slightly different for this shot. First, I put my tripod on top of a trashcan to get some extra height and clear the fence [...]
