Best of 2016 - part one
Now that 2016 is coming to an end. Will take a look back at what I feel are my top 10 photos of the year. They will be in no particular order. I have also driven over 6500 mile to photograph these location.
I’ll start in Havre de Grace, Maryland. The Concord Point Lighthouse is located on the banks of the Susquehanna River, just before it goes into the Chesapeake Bay. It was constructed in 1827. It was a cold morning in January when I captured this photo. It’s a beautiful place to watch the sunrise.
With my daughter going to college in Savannah, GA. After a few trips there. I have fallen in love with their Oak trees and the Spanish Moss. On my last visit, I went to Wormsloe State Historic Site. As you pull through the main gate. Your looking down a mile long dirt road, lined with over 400 hundred oak trees. There road dates back to the early 1800.
One of my favorite locations to photographic from is in Camden. You're on the north side of the Ben Franklin Bridge. It’s not the safest place to be and no one will know you're there. With that being said, they are now turning the area into parking a lot. I know a lot more people will see Philadelphia from here in the future. I finally was able to shoot the 4th of July Fireworks from here.
Parvin State Park has been on my list to photographic for a while. When I left my house, the sky was filled with clouds. When I arrived the clouds were all gone. I had to made the best of it. I found a couple of kayakers coming in. It was a total lose for me.
When spring came, it brought a few weeks of stormy weather. The clouds were amazing looking. I would just drive around looking for a shot. When I passed this old barn on the side of the road. I stopped in the middle of the road. I didn’t even turn my car off. Sometimes you have to be in the right place at the right time.
