• Trying Out Star Photography

    I've read about how to photograph the Milky Way but I never had the opportunity to be in a really dark place away from the city lights pollution. The weather in the cabin was cloudy most of the time, only one day the sky was clear enough to capture the stars, so I went outside to locate the Milky Way but unfortunately in December the Milky Way is barely seen in the North Hemisphere. I was little disappointed but back at home I checked the photos and I found interesting night shots.

  • Clouds On Fire - Great Smoky Mountains

    Sometimes finding the perfect spot to capture the sunset is the easiest part, but if you're patient enough shortly after the sun disappears below the horizon you can witness the most amazing events in the sky. I was about to return to the cabin when the clouds turned so red like they were on fire. Without thinking twice, I grabbed my camera and took some interesting shots.

  • The Cabin Above The Clouds

    Flying Over The Cabin

    After a long driver from Miami to North Carolina, we all were exhausted and hungry. But the weather was excellent to take some aerial videos with DJI Phamton 2 quadcopter. I'm not a cinematographer at all and it took me a long time to create this little video. Enjoy the ride!

     

    Photo - The Cabin Above The Clouds

    After a long debate where to go to spend Christmas this year, we decided to drive from South Florida to North Carolina. We had to find and rent a cabin in a short time, fortunately we found this cabin called "A Walk In The Clouds" exactly what I had in mind, spending the holidays at a high altitude.

    At 3400 feet elevation, this cabin is the second highest in that mountain with spectacular views of The Great Smoky Mountains, of course when it was overcast, the clouds were all around the place.

    Driving the mountain's unpaved roads to the cabin, without street lights was very dangerous, so we decided not driving in the dark.
