Morning Glory

Morning Glory

The sun rises and casts its warm golden light over the distant mountains of the Eastern Continental Divide. From our vantage point on the white sandstone and quartz cliffs of Bear Rocks Nature Preserve, we captured the untouched beauty of this spot of West Virginia wilderness.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

Sunset casts a warm glow over the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse as it sits perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the rocky granite shores of Acadia National Park’s Mount Desert Island in Maine. The lighthouse dates to 1855 and is currently the private residence of a local Coast Guard employee. We didn’t abandon our spot to capture this beautiful sunset shot until after four hours when the tide rose around our ankles.

Summer Rain

Summer Rain

Freshwater wetlands are home to a thriving ecosystem of unique plant and animal life. This body of water was being nourished by a downpour of fresh summer rain that formed a cooling mist in the distance. Even as the rain poured, dimpling the surface of the water, the clouds were beginning to open up and reveal the hidden blue of the sky overhead. This image is only available as a print because of its size.

Tangled

Tangled

We were fascinated by the intricate patterns of tree roots that clung to the boulders among the cliffs at Smugglers’ Notch Pass in Stowe, Vermont. These trees are just as tenacious as the notorious Champlain pirates who long ago used the treacherous narrow pass and series of caves to smuggle cattle and other illegal goods across the Canadian border and into New England.

Golden Shore

Golden Shore

Ancient weathered trees line the beautiful coast of Jekyll Island, Georgia at Driftwood Beach. The bleached bones of a thriving maritime forest now lay scattered on the rock and sand, the last remnants of a battle lost to erosion. Branches gnarled with time bend beneath the warm glow of the sun as it rises above the horizon to bring a new day to the Golden Isle.

Dusk On St. Andrew’s Beach

Dusk On St. Andrew’s Beach

Jekyll Island, one of Georgia’s Golden Isles, lives up to its name with the beautiful St Andrew’s Beach. The soft white sands stretch in the distance and are a sharp contrast to the weathered remains of a forest long ago devastated by the weather and erosion that lies scattered across the beach. But new life abounds everywhere with migratory birds and schools of dolphin feeding offshore.

The Sentinel

The Sentinel

The soft glow of morning highlights this once-stately tree, a lone sentinel guarding the shifting sands of Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, Georgia. The silence is broken by the soft drum of the surf onto the wet sand and an occasional call of a sea gull swooping overhead.

Forgotten

Forgotten

If this old car could speak, oh what a tale it would tell. The bullet holes and dented fenders cannot hide the still-sleek lines peeking through the rich patina of red-orange rust. It has aged with character, sitting dignified and forgotten among the trees, where tired and worn, it has at last come to rest.

The River Guide

The River Guide

On a beautiful October day, we came across this unusually placed rock cairn in the middle of a remote area of the Cheat River in West Virginia. The builders would have had to wade into the cold mountain stream and select rocks from its bed to mark their trail. It made an interesting foreground view for our photo of this popular fly fishing river during that colorful fall afternoon.

Autumn’s Last Hurrah

Autumn’s Last Hurrah

This view was from a hilltop meadow surrounded by woods. From this vantage point, on a winter evening, we captured a beautiful sunset through the filter of the tree branches. We loved the contrast of the fiery reds and oranges of the sky against the cool blue and purple hills.

Eternal Ridges

Eternal Ridges

The warmth of afternoon sun fades to a glow and the coolness of a damp evening eases forward into the valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains of the western edge of North Carolina. This view is eternal as one scans from the peaks to any direction to find ridge after ridge repeat to the horizon.

Among The Branches

Among The Branches

Following a snowstorm, this beautiful pair of Northern Cardinals spent most of the day perching on the branches of a tree on a hilltop clearing just beyond the woods to where they flew back and forth to their home. It was a very cold day, and we were amused at how the male bird fluffed his feathers against the cold.

Purple Mountain Majesty

Purple Mountain Majesties

Sun fades from the Blue Ridge Mountains leaving endless peaks glowing in their purple mountain majesty. Although it may be pleasingly warm during the afternoon sun, a chill is in the air each evening as the sun sets and fall flirts with the onset of winter.

The Skating Pond

The Skating Pond

Amish ice skaters take to the pond on a snowy day in this scene that brings to mind another era. This farm is the original farm of Jonas Stutzman, the first white man to settle in the Indian country of Eastern Holmes County, Ohio and the first Amish man in the county. View OPTIONS to see framing options and the location of the hidden state.

51 Chevy

'51 Chevy

This old 1951 Chevy sedan caught our attention as it sat stranded in a pool of water among the trees. It seemed so out of place, as if it had been plopped down among the woods. How did it get here? From where did it come? What is it’s story? It left us with more questions than answers, with nothing left but our imagination to fill in the gaps.

Hope From The Devil's Courthouse

Hope From The Devil's Courthouse

The summit of the Devil’s Courthouse demands an exhausting climb to reach the top at 5,720 feet. It is located at the western edge of the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina. Cherokee lore had been reported to state that Jutaculla, a slant eyed giant, dwells in the cave in Devil’s Courthouse. Folk tales say that the devil holds court in the chambers of the cave.

Dockside

Dockside

The end of a beautiful day shone before us as the sun spilled light across the water. It warmed the fishing boats for just a few moments as they rested in the harbor after a long day’s work. We watched it peek in and out from among the clouds before at last disappearing below the horizon.

New Arrivals

Whenever we can escape the studio, we hit the county roads and mountain trails always looking for new inspiration. We come back with tons of new images and must then find time to sort through them to find those truly exceptional pieces that make it into our Morehead Photography portfolio. As a result, our collection of fine art scenic photography prints is always evolving. We decided to add the New Arrivals gallery so collectors who follow us can quickly see what is new. We hope you are as excited to see the new work as we are to share it.
