One Of A Kind...
The most exciting part about shooting at these old fish shacks off Pine Island? Coming away with something unique. I love finding new things to shoot. It’s hard in this area. To have access here was a dream come true! Thanks a million to Scott for hooking this up - it was amazing! On this shot, which is not the one we were staying at, @tidetothesea & myself had our tripods in 3 feet of water to shoot. The shooting star is 100% real and has not been altered - check the raw file in my stories for this photo unedited. I believe it’s the largest one I’ve caught on camera. I’m not sure if this looks special but I promise – it so was! It’s hard to get to this place & the conditions have to be just right to shoot, otherwise, you’re underwater. Everything lined up perfectly. Btw, we missed you out there Kyle... Thanks again @captbriancaptiva - go to him for your Captiva island boating needs & thanks @feed_the_invisible for braving this crazy trip with us!

Dream Shot...
I’ve been telling my shooting buddies lately about my dream shot - a huge strike over a bridge. The night of this storm, I couldn’t get to sleep. So I headed across the bridge to try & shoot some. It was pouring rain so I lifted the hatch back of my car, set my tripod up under it & sat inside inside the car to try to catch something. These crawlers were happening nonstop but in a different direction every time. Where ever I was shooting one would go off in a different spot. Every time I changed the angle, one will go off where I’d been pointed before. Eventually I settled on shooting at the bridge and hoping for the best. Right before I called it quits, this happened. The only thing is, it didn’t happen exactly as you see it here. This image is made from a single photo, but it’s cropped heavily with various adjustments for maximum visual goodness. See my stories for the original shot. Get ready to be disappointed. Maybe. But hey… I bought the 42 megapixels, I’ll use em as I see fit! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Morning On The Gulf...
This is from a morning that followed one of the best nights in...ever! These historic fish shacks basically in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico are one of our area’s best treasures & we had a special opportunity to shoot them st night! More on that soon. I want to send a huge thanks out to @captbriancaptiva who not only took us out there, but stayed the evening with us as well. If anybody is looking to explore the Captiva, N. Captiva, Cayo Costa area - I would recommend him highly! Shot with he & @feed_the_invisible while @tidetothesea was droning elsewhere.

Golden Oldie...
This is a super old photo with a slightly new edit at one of my favorite places. A sneaky shot of an unsuspecting couple sunsetting at my local photo-ing hole. Feel free to leave a comment if you remember this photo, or… If you don’t. By the way, last week I took a “social media break” in which I went over a full day off from looking at my phone or making any posts. Not much of a break...but progress nonetheless!

August’s timelapses were shot over the course of 2 nights with the good folks I’ve tagged. Check them out - they all rule. Not much time left with the Milky Way these days -I was glad we were able to get a few clear nights. I think I’ve mentioned this before but it was wanting to shoot timelapses that got me into astrophotography & if they weren’t so damn time consuming would probably be what I’d do most. It may come down but just in case it stays up - @radiohead , Lotus Flower. Again.

The Calm Before...
This place, when the water is calm - cannot be beat. Whether sunset, Milky Way, storms, reflections, unicorns... whatever you want - it’s there. One of Florida’s finest gems & my favorite spot in the world! Shot with & thanks to @kve239 for taking me on the first mission to this place! Beautiful w, I’m in the middle of a short break from IG but I had to post something because...addict.

Jam Pony Zone...
My backyard ramp is my little man cave. I see lightning over it often but was scared to walk out & shoot it. Things changed this year & some of that fear’s gone. Exposure therapy works! A 1.5 hour heat lightning storm led me to walk outside, stand on the ramp & shoot away. This was my favorite. I did about 20 versions of this photo with varying composited in strikes. There were so many with lightning in em, & I’ll only post one shot from this angle, that I didn’t want to let the others go to waste. But at the end of the day, I decided this single shot was the best way. Next time I’m going to have some skating somehow...I hope. @kve239 It was not here for this but I think he just posted an amazing photo! I am an ugly man.

Yin & Yang....
My friend Joe - @tidetothesea - who is one of the reasons I love IG btw, meeting rad people I wouldn’t have otherwise - insisted I borrow a monster lens during a visit to see him. He recommended I try it on the moon. At 600mm, paired with my a 6300, it’s like 900 mm full frame. Well… he was right. This shot of the half moon is better than anything I’ve gotten before. The detail & even some color was astounding. Can’t wait to try it a few more times before having to give it back. Thanks Joe! Inspired by @airballfm

Twisted...
The kids often like to say they got “twisted“ or “turnt” regarding becoming inebriated or chemically enhanced. I like to use it when describing an old dock I’ve not seen before. This last minute mission with @kve239 went from epic sunset to even more epic & unexpected lightning storm! Photographs of that coming soon. BTW, although it looks purpley - almost to an extreme, this is pretty close to the colors that evening.

Two Way Reprise...
I decided to drag my mirror back out this year. I had an idea this already reflective spot might work for one of these. What you can’t really tell in this photo is that as I shot this there was a lightning strike off in the distance. I was so hyped on it until I got it home and realized that on the phone you can barely tell. Nonetheless, this is my favorite one of these I’ve had the opportunity to do. The haze in the sky made the Milky Way a bit covered, but I’m hoping you can tell what’s going on here. I know I’ll be asked, this is a single shot. Raw file in my stories.Shot alongside @feed_the_invisible with @kve239 & @_bloks_ showing up later.
