Merchants Millpond State Park Photos

Published on July 11, 2016

Earlier this year, my wife and I spent some time in north-eastern North Carolina on vacation. While there, we visited Merchants Millpond state park, which I would rank among the most scenic in the state. The day we visited happened to be the centennial celebration for the park, so the crowd was larger than usual. That said, we had a fantastic time. We rented a canoe and explored the pond, making this outing among my favorite state park visits to date. Here’s the accompanying photo album.

Cliffs of the Neuse State Park

Published on July 10, 2016

Last December, on a particularly warm day, my wife and I visited Cliffs of the Neuse state park. Located just south of Goldsboro, North Carolina, this park has some very interesting geography. High cliffs tower 90 feet over the Neuse river, in an otherwise flat area of the state. As usual, we took along our cameras, and this album is the result.

I’m backlogged on photos, so expect more in the coming days and weeks (I have 10 more albums to post!).

NC Zoo Macros

Published on May 31, 2016

I’ve posted some macro photos from a trip to the zoo last fall. I’m woefully behind in my photo posting, but I hope to remedy that in the near future.

Yosemite National Park Photos

Published on August 19, 2015

Back in June, my wife and I visited Yosemite National Park while in California. It was truly a memorable place, and I can see why this area has inspired so many people in the past. Here are some photos we took on our visit. Enjoy!

Photo Catch-Up

Published on August 19, 2015

I recently realized that I had forgotten to post some news about various photo albums I’ve put up on my photography site. I’ve been woefully behind the times in getting things posted, but I’m slowly catching up. Here are the albums I’ve posted so far that I didn’t mention here:

I have a number of albums from California in the wings, followed by a number of albums for new state parks that I’ve visited. Stay tuned!

Carolina Beach State Park Photos

Published on May 22, 2015

I’ve finally gotten around to posting some photos from a trip my wife and I took last year right before we got married. We visited Carolina Beach state park back in September, and enjoyed our trip (it was a nice break from all the hectic wedding planning). If you’re ever in the Wilmington, NC area, be sure to check it out!

Hawaii Volcanoes Photos

Published on December 25, 2014

The final photo album from my honeymoon has finally been posted (it sure took long enough to get this far!). This last album showcases the many sights we saw at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Visiting this park marked the first time I’d ever been on an active volcano, smelled naturally occurring sulfur gas, and seen dramatic evidence of past lava flows. It’s a remarkable national park that I highly recommend.

Road to Hana Photos

Published on December 21, 2014

I have just posted the fifth (and final) album from our visit to Maui during our honeymoon. This album focuses on the many sights we saw while driving the Road to Hana. The final two albums from our honeymoon, both showcasing the Big Island of Hawaii, will be posted this week. Stay tuned for the conclusion!

Ali’i Lavender Farm Photos

Published on December 20, 2014

Photos from our visit to Ali’i Lavender Farm on Maui have just been posted. I got some great macro shots in this series. I haven’t been able to identify every flower in this series, but in the interest of time I’m posting these so I can get to the rest of our photos before year’s end.

‘Iao Valley Photos

Published on December 16, 2014

The second photo album from our trip to Maui, and the eighth overall from our honeymoon, has been posted, this time focusing on ‘Iao Vally State Monument. This park, nestled within a mountain range on Maui, is a really neat place to visit. The park is home to the ‘Iao Needle, which is a prominent geological feature.

First Maui Pictures

Published on December 15, 2014

I’ve finally gotten around to captioning the first album focusing on our visit to Maui during our honeymoon (this is the seventh album from that trip). This album showcases some of the random things we saw around the island. I’ve got a number of other albums in the pipeline, which I hope to publish soon.

Final Kauai Albums

Published on November 19, 2014

I’ve posted the final two photo albums from our trip to Kauai:

Both of these places were too incredible for words, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit them. Next up will be photos from the island of Maui, which we really enjoyed. Stay tuned for more!

Na Pali Coast Pictures

Published on November 17, 2014

Album number four from my honeymoon to Hawaii has been posted, this time focusing on the Na Pali coast along Kauai’s northwestern shore. This portion of Hawaii truly has to be seen to be believed; my pictures don’t do it justice.

Kilauea Point Photos

Published on November 13, 2014

Album number three from my honeymoon has just been posted, this time showcasing the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. Home to thousands of birds, this refuge also had a neat lighthouse that we had the (rare) opportunity to tour. I thought this to be the best bang for our buck on the island of Kauai, so if you ever visit that island, be sure to check this attraction out.

Limahuli Garden Pictures

Published on November 10, 2014

Album number two from my honeymoon to Hawaii has been posted. This one features the Limahuli Garden & Preserve, a fantastic tropical garden on the island of Kauai. The entrance fee was a little steep, but in the end the visit was worth it.

Pictures of Kauai

Published on November 8, 2014

I have just posted the first of what I estimate will be 13 (!) photo albums from my honeymoon in Hawaii. While there, my wife and I visited a total of three islands, and we took thousands of photos. Each of the albums I post will feature photos that we both took. This first album, Visit to Kauai, showcases a number of photos from Kauai that didn’t fit into any particular theme. The next five albums will all be themed albums from Kauai. I then have five albums from Maui, and two from the Big Island. Stay tuned for more pictures; we saw lots of cool things while in paradise!

Reynolda House & Photo Site Updates

Published on August 12, 2014

I’ve just posted a new photo album of a recent trip to Reynolda House in Winston-Salem. This estate, former home to R.J. Reynolds (founder of the R.J. Reynolds tobacco company), is truly astounding. If you’re ever in the area, I recommend it as a day trip.

I have also finally gotten around to rolling out some minor improvements at my photo site. Tall images should be scaled to fit the view-port now, though it’s not perfect (there are still some bugs lurking in the code). I hope to eventually improve this portion of the site, but for now it should prevent having to scroll around to see the whole image. (I’ve backed this change out since I’m not 100% happy with it).
