What camera you say?

What camera did you shoot the 'Coastal - North Carolina' book with you say?
Many I say - everything from a Fuji 6x17 panorama film camera to an iPhone, I even put a camera up on a kite with a remote control!

For those techies, here is the list, in no particular order.
Canon 20D, 5D, 5D mkII & the EOS A2E
Pentax 67 & 645
iPone 4s & 6
Panasonic LX5
Fuji 617
Gopro hero 4blk from a DJI Phantom quadcopter platform

This image was shot at 5:29:12 May 7th 2006 on Shackleford Banks with a Canon 20D and a 17-40L @17mm. Shackleford Banks is part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Sailing South

Well it's been a bit over three weeks back on the water and I'm anchored off the Hobe Sound National Wildlife refuge near Jupiter Florida. It's currently raining and gusting to 35 or more so I have elected to sit tight for a change and catch up on a few task - one being an update to this blog. Many of you are following the adventures of Steve and Pungo on facebook and for those of you who are not, head on over there for many more images.

What am I doing? I'm headed south on my 26ft Island Packet sailboat, "Pungo". How far and where are unknown at this time. I am sitting at a cross roads right now trying to figure out my next move. Wait for the next southerly to Head out Lake Worth Inlet and over to Grand Bahama Island or catch an up-coming Northerly for an outside run down to Biscayne Bay and then over to Bimini. If I go to Biscayne bay I might take a side trip down to see Cyndi and Scott Perkins who are moored in Marathon Key on their Sailboat "Chips Ahoy". Choices

So far the trip has gone well. It was very cold in the beginning for sure but have been pretty comfortable for the last few days. There are always trials and tribulations on the water and I have had my share but the freedom is worth every penny. As Bernard Moitessier wrote" All in all, I have had a lot of luck in my misfortunes" That would hold true in all aspects of my life.

Well there's a quick update for you and now back to looking for mermaids.

Chasing the Light expedition

live oak near the mouth of the New River

Well it's been five weeks of sailing and photographing the coast of North Carolina and I'm still headed north to the NC/ Virginia border. Back in March I found a shoal draft Island Packet sailboat that would be perfect for sailing the shallow coast of North Carolina, so I sailed it back to Wilmington and got to work on the necessary repairs and upgrades. I quickly found out that boat is an acronym for Break Out Another Thousand. After several months of outwardly flowing money and sweat I finally threw off the dock lines and pointed Pungo down the Cape Fear river.

I had been wanting to do some aerial photography of the coast and especially the patterns of the marshes for some time but never seemed to be here when the grasses were green. As a short term solution to getting something from the air I built a remote control camera rig that I send up on a kite. The first few times were quite scary - what am I saying, It's scary every time.

A funny thing about wanting to catch the grasses green, not only for the aerial work but also for regular landscapes is that I am finding I like a lot of the landscapes shots in Black and White.

I hope to be better about posting about my journey here, but for those of you who use facebook you can find me there for more spontaneous postings.

I Look forward to sharing my journey
