Light Painting with Planes by Mark Andre

I don't get to work on it as much as I'd like, but I was able to get another in my series looking at the approach path in to National Airport. Check out the others in the grid below.

Stormy Beach Weekend by Mark Andre

A couple weekends ago I was out in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. There was a massive coastal low pressure system that hung around all weekend creating some mammoth surf and angry skies.

While it wasn't the most picturesque beach weekend, it did challenge me to get outside of my comfort zone and work for the photos.

Going for long shots with my 70-200 gave the beach scenes some really great depth while still getting a sense of space and scale. 

Stormy Sunrises

Once the rain died down I was able to get the tripod and filters out to do some long exposure shots with water swirling around the Jetties.

Those DC Sunsets by Mark Andre

Its been quite a while since I've been out taking pictures in DC. By my count, nearly two busy months. I've been looking for a good excuse to chase the light and Friday night provided that opportunity. I was hoping for some thunderstorms but my disappointment quickly shifted when the sun broke out after a quick band of rain came through. I hurried down to the tidal basin to quickly set up a shot with the dramatic clouds moving across the sky. 

The change in the light and the sky was pretty dramatic. As the sun set, the color crept up the clouds to create very beautiful scenes.

Switzerland Part III: Infrared by Mark Andre

The last photos I'll post from Switzerland come from my near infrared camera. Switzerland was an amazing place for infrared photos. A bit of the magic of the bright greens and blues gets lost with the way the infrared reacts to the sunlight. However the mountains and valleys take on a whole different perspective.
