About the Photograph
On the day this picture was taken, I woke up during the wee hours of the morning, and ventured into the darkness with my backpack stuffed full of photo equipment. I hiked from Hammock Beach (FL) to somewhere beyond the Washington Oaks Gardens State Park, and took pictures along the way. This stretch of beach in Palm Coast, Florida, is covered with Coquina rock formations and tide pools. It is an absolutely wonderful place for photography and exploration. When the sun started to rise, I setup and took a few long exposure shots using my Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM lens and a variable ND variable filter. It was such a beautiful sunrise that I decided to do a self portrait using a wireless remote shutter release.

About My Photography
To me, photography is not just about the end product. It is about a journey, a story, and a moment. It is also about finding myself, and appreciating the beauty of the world in which we live. My desire to chronicle the lives of my children through beautiful pictures is what inspired me to start shooting about six years ago. These past several years has been an amazing learning experience! Thanks to my family, friends, and fellow photographers for their support!
