The view from my perch on the mountain

The Golden Hour

A few more from the beach I grew up on, shot on our trip home earlier in the month.

That haze in the air was actually smoke from two wild fires burning in the marshes of Eastern North Carolina.

I had mixed feelings about that. Besides the environmental damage the smoke also aggravated my asthma, keeping me indoors where I could breathe.

On the other hand it also produced some spectacular sunsets.

Pure stubbornness and my rescue inhaler allowed me to shoot this series using my long lens.

  8. Really spectacular sunsets. I have a reactive type of asthma, but have found after reading more about Vitamin D and increasing the dose I take I don’t get into as much trouble as I had been.
